Passion, versatility marked New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro's tenure at Texas
 
1 Attachment(s)
Initially, Texas secondary coach Duane Akina knew very little about this talented receiver prospect from Brownwood, Texas who was on campus for the Longhorns' three-day high school camp in 2007.

Kenny Vaccaro wasn't anywhere on Akina's radar. That was until then-Texas receivers coach Bobby Kennedy urged him to come take a look at the kid. Akina observed Vaccaro from a distance as he participated in a two-hand touch football competition.

Kennedy was right because Akina, a fiery-type himself, fell in love with Vaccaro's passion.

"This kid was launching himself. He was out to win," Akina said as he laughed at the memory. "First prize in those games was just a little Texas hat.

"But what jumped out at me in those games is this kid just loves to compete. You could just see he loved ball, he had some size about him. There was enough athletic ability and with his work ethic you knew he had a chance to be a great player."

Does anyone know what the initials on his back stand for?

KDV III - I think it's Kenny D Vaccaro the third... He was a Jr, or the 2nd. His dad passed away when he was 16 so he values the fact he can carry on his father's name, according to different stories I've read. Kenny Dwayne Vaccaro III is his son, who was born after his Junior season at Texas.

I'm getting more stoked every time I read or hear something about Vaccaro. He covers well and tackles well. Hmmmmmm.............tell me again what our defense has missing?
I like that he's got an attitude. Bring it on!
