Is All-American Jace Amaro coming back for his senior season at Tech?

The answer is an emphatic yes. How do we know? Because he said so. At a piano bar. With a bunch of drunk Tech fans. So it's pretty much settled.

It's official. He's coming back.

Sure the video is grainy, and it's very difficult to understand exactly what he said, but there is enough there to draw some conclusions.  Jace Amaro is coming back for his senior year at Texas Tech.

There's no way this is just a guy trying to get a free round of beers and a few phone numbers.  This is a commitment and we'll take him at his word.

Many thanks to techsanSAE who put up this fan post and then emailed me the proof.

I've done my best to transcribe the videos so you can watch them and have a few beers and maybe even everyone will get pregnant again.  This is great news.

Video One, Jace's announcement:

My best attempt at transcribing the video:

Whew. Whew. As they should. You know JACE AMARO. I know we lost a couple of games. Hey. I don't know boutchu but I'm coming back to Texas Tech.  (wild cheers, people go nuts, pants come off).  Let's hear it one more time for the number one tight end in the nation Jace Amaro. (People lose their shit). How do we follow that? I have no idea. I have no more to give. That was amazing. Go Jace.

Video Two, the party video:


He represented your great University so if you are a Tech fan I want you to stand up on your two feet, put your guns in the air and sing Texas Tech.

Fight, Raiders, Fight. Fight, Raiders, Fight. Fight for the school we love so dearly. You'll hit 'em high, you'll hit 'em low. You'll push the ball across the goal, Tech, Fight Fight We'll praise your name, boost you to fame. Fight for the Scarlet and Black. You will hit 'em, you will wreck 'em. (Not approved words from the University)  And the Victory Bells will ring out. (yelling, yelling, screaming, crying). Raider. Power. Raider. Power. Raider. Power. UT. balls sucks balls. K-State sucks balls balls. Texas A&M balls sucks balls balls. Baylor balls sucks balls. Oklahoma sucks balls. Raider Power. Raider Power. Raider Raider Power. Thank you Texas Tech Red Raiders.

So there you have it.  He definitely can't change his mind now.  Welcome back, Jace!
