Pedro Cortez, President
A UT grad, Pedro grew up in Sinton, a small farming community outside Corpus Christi. He headed to Dallas in 1999 and after a job change and spending 2000 in Corpus Pedro was back in Dallas in 2001, and this time he plans to stay awhile. His first love is softball closely followed by flag football and he's no strager to the Big D Sponsor Bars. His favorite Dallas spots are Pluckers Wing Bar & Barley House.
He and Susan (Big D Athletic Director) married in 2005 and spend their free time traveling, wine tasting and hanging out with their four pets (2 dogs: Miken and Easton & 2 cats: Hunter and Sinton). At Big D tailgates he'll be the one by the grill putting his cooking skills to work. Sports run in the Cortez family with both of his younger brothers playing college ball, one an offensive lineman at Texas A&M Kingsville and the other a pitcher for both Texas and Arizona, making it to the College World Series with both teams.
Susan Cortez, Athletics
Susan left Nebraska to attend college at TCU and has been in the metroplex ever since, but she's still a Nebraska girl at heart and follows her Huskers closely. She's an avid sports fan keeping up with all Dallas teams but her favorites are the Rangers and Cowboys.
She knows enough stats to make most guys envious, but you'd probably never guess she was on her high school drill team. Susan has an affinity of 80s bands including Depeche Mode and Poison; Fallen Angel is at the top of the list. Out and about in Dallas you'll probably catch her at Winetastic enjoying a glass of wine or on the patio at Barley House. Hang out at Park Tavern on Thursdays after football and you might be lucky enough to catch Susan and Pedro up on the karaoke stage.
