Texas Longhorns coach Mack Brown won the inaugural Stallings Award.  Stallings started the Rise School in Tuscaloosa, Ala., when he was coach of the Crimson Tide, to provide a school for children with development delays.
There are now Rise Schools in Austin, Dallas and Houston.  Brown volunteers at the Rise School in Austin.  Brown also had a relationship with Stallings’ late son, Johnny, who was born with Down syndrome.  Johnny Stallings was the real inspiration behind the award.

Stallings stated, “It goes to somebody who makes a difference in the community.  It’s not about won-loss record. Mack has made a difference in a lot of different ways and lot of different programs not only in Austin but throughout the country. We wanted him to be the first recipient of this award.

Brown stated: “The award means a lot to me because I knew Johnny. I knew him well. I watched Coach Stallings. He is a big tough football coach. He was a mentor to us all. When I was around him with Johnny you saw the special bond he had with his son. It was the driving force for Sally [Mack's wife] and I to get involved with the Rise School in Austin.”
