Personal Quote:

If everyone in Texas made his or her own Alamo, there would be that many different versions of the story. It's like somebody making a movie about my mother: I'd want the facts to be right, but I'd want it to be shiny in some places and dull in others. I'd be protective. I hope everyone who sees the movie will understand that our hearts are in the right place.


Son of John Lee Hancock Sr., who won Baylor University letters in football in 1950 and 1951. Hancock's brother Kevin also lettered four years as a 1981-1984 linebacker for the Bears. See more »
