COLLEGE STATION Dude Perfect was back in Aggieland today. The Texas A&M graduates-turned-viral video trick-shotsters returned to where they got their starts, and it was all to help a friend who made a name for himself on the football field.
Young and old came out to see the internet stars when they took to the balcony at the TexAgs building on George Bush Drive, along with former Aggie wide receiver Travis Labhart.
"I've known Trav for a while," Tyler Toney with Dude Perfect explained. "We grew up playing each other in high school, and we've been good friends for a while, so we always knew something would eventually happen. Now's the time. I figure we could help him get his name out there before the (NFL) Draft."
From walk-on to favorite target of a Heisman winner, Labhart is making a push for a pro football career, but could he become a two-sport star from the top of the TexAgs building on George Bush Drive?
It took a few attempts to figure out the distance, and after some close calls, he found pay dirt. The crowd on hand went crazy.
"It's hard to match their abilities," Labhart said of Dude Perfect, "but it was a very interesting and fun experience, for sure."
Afterwards, the guys stuck around, signed every autograph asked for and took every picture requested.
"It's fun for us to see all these kids coming in here, because for us, that's what it's all about," Cory Cotton with DP said. "It's about inspiring other people to chase their dreams and their passions, and hopefully, do it for a cause greater than themselves."
The video will be released in the coming weeks.
