What: The American Heart Association's Paul "Bear" Bryant Awards launch of H-Town's newest young professional group.

Where: 8th Wonder Brewery.

The 411: The American Heart Association tapped into a pool of college football fans for the formation of its Redshirt Committee on this night during which the Texas A&M vs. Arkansas game was playing out on the flat screen TVs. Redshirt Committee founder Zac Scotton (you might remember him as a Baylor Bear) and his wife, Lauren, hosted the gathering aimed at raising awareness of heart disease and stroke.

The Bear Bryant Awards dinner is set for Jan. 14, 2015 at the new J.W. Marriott downtown. Lending their support are Redshirt founding chairs the Scottons, Joseph Farley, Mitchell Cash, Catherine Radley and Jeff Welch.

Who: Ashley Smart, Jake Powers, Kara Farley, Nick Jean-Baptiste, Max Harris, Disney Hanka, Allyson Camp, Cat Yeatman, Mark Haywood, Rami Rodriguez, My Tran, Lauren Hargis, Jeff Welch and Reeme Parappilly.
