Father-Son Duo Share Texas Tech History and Memories on Sportsline [AUDIO]
On the Thursday edition of Sportsline, it was a father-son tag team as we spoke with two members of a loyal Texas Tech family: Dr. Wick and Dr. Chuck Alexander.
First, we spoke with the son, Dr. Chuck Alexander. Chuck played football for Tech during the late 80s under Coach Jerry Moore, and is now carrying on the family business: he is an orthodontist up in Colorado. Chuck talked about some of his favorite memories during his time at Tech, and the legacy of the Alexander family and their history with Texas Tech.
Right after that, we spoke with his father, Dr. Wick Alexander. Wick played football during the late 50s at Tech before injuries ended his football career and he moved on to baseball. Wick shared some of his fondest memories of his time at Tech, including the fateful day when Texas Tech was accepted into the Southwest Conference. He also talked about some of his memories of his son Chuck and his family's contribution to the world of orthodontistry.
