Silver Spurs - Handlers & Caretakers of BEVO

August 2016

BEVO XV to Debut in 100th Season of Tradition

As I’m sure you’ve heard, we will be unveiling BEVO XV at the season opener against Notre Dame.  This is an extremely exciting time to be a Silver Spur and a Spur alum.  BEVO XV’s unveiling will be the biggest moment in the history of the Silver Spurs and the BEVO tradition. 

His debut, during the 100th anniversary of the BEVO tradition, has garnered national interest.  Be sure and tune in the college football coverage, on September 4th, to see the Silver Spurs and BEVO featured on many different television programs.  We’ll send out a list of times and dates, so you can set your DVRs. 

Also, for those of you attending the game, be sure to arrive in your seat early, so you can witness the 2016 BEVO handlers introduce BEVO XV to the University.  Plan on being in your seat at 6:30 to see this special moment in University history. 


Nominate a Student for Silver Spurs

The spring semester is upon us and selections start soon, so please let us know if you have a current University Student to nominate for the Spring 2017 Silver Spur Rowel class. Applications will be due on February 10.

The Silver Spurs are looking for students who exhibit a passion for the University, display campus leadership and excel in the classroom.  Please send us any recommendations you might have to


A Note from Outgoing Alumni President Kevin Millin

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you, our Spur alumni, for your support and contributions toward a better association these past two years.  As president of the Silver Spur Alumni Association, I can honestly say that the rewards of our efforts have greatly out-weighed the labor required.  The responsibilities of this job are easily met with the unconditional support  and advice from the Advisory Board, the Board, and the Executive Board (with specific recognition to Ricky Brennes and Howard Nirken).  Please make an effort in the coming year to get behind the Silver Spur Alumni Association and make the 100th Anniversary of BEVO a memorable one. 

I would also like to introduce to you our new president, Myron Blalock. Myron is a native Houstonian, a successful businessman and a proud husband and father. I have no doubt that he will cast a very large shadow over the next two years with his uncanny ability to get things done in a matter that, I promise you, will bring pride to our organization.  The message I’d like to leave all of you is this, ‘get involved, do what you can when you are able, because everyone’s contributions make us better.’ 


Hook’ em,

Kevin Millin
