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.

Trivia:

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 »
