Texas A&M football exhibit debuts at Bush Library

The George H.W. Bush Library and Museum in Texas has opened an exhibit dedicated to the history of Texas A&M football. The exhibit features over 100 original artifacts, including trophies, playbooks, and Heisman Trophies. It also includes interactive displays highlighting important games and profiles of standout players and coaches. The exhibit aims to showcase the spirit and traditions of Texas A&M football.

Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel's Pro Day in 2013 attracted a large crowd, including former President George H.W. Bush. Years later, Manziel visited the late President at his library and museum on A&M's campus, where he presented Bush with a signed helmet and football. These items are now on display in an exhibit dedicated to the history of A&M football at the Bush Library and Museum. The exhibit, titled "A Spirit Can Ne'er Be Told... A Century of Aggie Football," was created in collaboration with various parties on campus and features over 100 original artifacts from lenders across the country. The exhibit covers the origins of A&M football in 1894 to the present day under coach Jimbo Fisher. It explores notable players and coaches, traditions like Reveille and the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band, and highlights 10 of A&M's biggest games in school history. The exhibit aims to showcase the spirit and traditions that make Texas A&M unique. The project took three years to complete and involved extensive research, content creation, and design. The exhibit was originally planned to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 12th Man tradition but was delayed due to the pandemic. The Bush Library partnered with A&M's athletic department, the A&M Letterman's Association, and the Sanders Corps of Cadets Center to obtain the items for display. The exhibit is now open to the public until April 28, 2024, and is expected to attract visitors throughout the fall, including on game days. The goal is for visitors to learn something new about A&M's shared history and appreciate the unsung heroes of Aggie football.
