Video: Troy Aikman coaching at Episcopal School of DallasEagles enter the weekend 3-1 with former Cowboys signal caller on the sideline.
For three-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Troy Aikman, Thursday nights belong to the NFL as a member of Fox's Thursday Night Football broadcast team.
"I'd always wanted to help out with high school [football] here," Aikman said on local radio in Dallas earlier this week. "I'd reached out to different programs, including [Episcopal School of Dallas] where my kids go, and they had said, 'Yeah, we’d love to have you help out.' But then I looked at my schedule with broadcasting, and it just hasn’t been easy to do."
Aikman's stepson Val Mooty
is a senior wide receiver for the Eagles, who enter this weekend's matchup with St. Andrew's/St. Stephen's Episcopal (Austin) with a 3-1 record.
