Barry Switzer won three national championships as the head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners, but he was doing the “Horns Up” sign with a fan Friday night.

Switzer shared a photo of himself and 37-year-old Francisco De Soto, who is University of Texas graduate, on Twitter. In it, both men are smiling while doing the “Horns Up” sign. Switzer’s reason for doing this is all kinds of awesome, too, as you’re about to see.

Pretty cool story. It just goes to show that you never know what might happen when you go out of your way to help another person in need.
