Albert S. Brient Collection
Nome do produtor
Albert S. Brient was a student at the College of Texas A&M and graduated in 1924 with a degree from the Agriculture Department. He later worked for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, as a county agricultural agent of Cooke County. Brient was a native of Frankston, Texas, in Anderson County.
In 1923, Brient was the 7th member of Texas A&M's Varsity Men's Basketball team, which won the national championship that year over Rice University. While Brient's fellow teammates received T cards for their athletic prowess and performance, Brient was excluded. Brient's teammates and associates then began a letter-writing campaign in 1936, which was spearheaded by E. King Gill, the original "12th Man". Finally, in 1967, Albert S. Brient was awarded the honor bestowed upon his teammates well before him and earned his "T" card. He was 67 years old at the time.
