Cavazos reminds us of the words spoken by legendary UT football coach, Darrell Royal, at the time of signing Tyler, TX high schooler Earl Campbell to play football for Texas. Royal stated that Earl would be his starting fullback the following year, despite being a freshman and, in spite of UT having an All-American already at that position. Royal explained: "If a dog's gonna bite, he'll bite as a pup."

Here is the link to Cavazos' presentation before the school board in 2011:
Later, during a presentation by BISD administrators about molding Veterans into a STEM school, Cavazos questioned if administration had a transportation plan in place and funding to transport students from all over Brownsville to Veterans. They did not.
Since that time, Cavazos has been active in UT student government, currently serving as President of the UT Senate of College Councils.
Cavazos claims that, despite the recent emphasis on dual enrollment, many of his Brownsville peers were not ready for UT. In his own case, he found that students from other areas of Texas were well ahead of him in credit hours at enrollment.
The young man is mulling over his options, but is currently inclined to run for some local office in upcoming elections.
