UT Equipment Manager, on working inside the Big Orange locker room

Roger Frazier

How did you become the equipment manager, or the “locker room guy?”

Before the guys get there, we put everything they need in their lockers. We’ve got 17 student assistants and two student managers. We clean the players’ helmets on Thursdays for home games and on Wednesdays when we go on the road. I take decals off their helmets that need to be redone each week.

Any freshman traditions?
