Terry “Teapot” Collins 1967
I am not sure if the early Teapots were "short and stout" ,but I do know that by 1966 stature was the primary qualifier for wearing the lid. It was a harmless varsity hazing tradition that required the freshman designated teapot to sing the teapot song before dinner each night at the dining hall at Moore Hill. It was a tradition that brought a lot of smiles to many faces except maybe the designated teapot .
TLSN tax exempt mission is to offer temporary financial assistance to former qualifying Longhorn student athletes , trainers, managers, coaches, and their immediate families. Last year TLSN raised $15,000 to help a former Longhorn volleyball player whose son had Leukemia. Recently Syd Keasler, Scott Palmer, and Billy Dale visited Terry Collins at his home to complete a due diligence process required by both TLSN and UT compliance.

Good morning Billy,
I attached the approved financial support request form for Mr. Collins. As you know, to comply with NCAA bylaws, we will need all receipts to document expenses incurred and the total amount received once TLSN has fulfilled its commitment to Mr. Collins.
If you need any other information from our office in order to begin providing financial support please let me know. We are thinking of Mr. Collins and very much hope that he will make a full recovery in 2019.
