Dishman giving back to Houston as Baylor's safeties coach

Friday was a big Baylor day in Houston. Art Briles spoke at an event put on by the Touchdown Club of Houston. A few hours later, Baylor held a camp in Houston at Episcopal High School.

A familiar face was there helping out.

Cris Dishman was a star cornerback for the Houston Oilers during their mostly successful years from 1988-1996. In January, Baylor promoted him to safeties coach. On Friday, he was at Episcopal High School, back in a city that loves him from his days with the Oilers.

"It's great to see so much talent in Houston," Dishman told FOX 26 Sports. "If you can just recruit Houston, you'll be great because Houston's got so much talent. So that's why I love that Houston's one of my recruiting areas. I love being back, eating at some of my favorite restaurants, and just moving along with it."

Dishman has not lost the intensity that he had as a player. He made sure his campers knew that he wanted them to be great.

"The more fired up you are, the more fired up they are," Dishman said. "They get a read off the coach. When I step on the football (field), I'm 110 (percent). I don't know how to do anything else but 110."
