Be it on the football field or the basketball court, Plano Senior alum Rex Burkhead saw plenty of large crowds during his four years as a Wildcat.

On Saturday, that same fanfare was palpable on the campus of the city’s oldest high school, only instead of spectating, the Plano community was there to join Burkhead in his latest endeavor to raise awareness about pediatric brain cancer.

That came about through the Team Jack Trifecta, a three-sport fundraiser hosted by Burkhead on behalf of the Team Jack Foundation, which is dedicated to raising money for research on children’s cancers.

The event consisted of a 5K fun run around the Plano campus on Saturday morning, followed by a youth football camp and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament. Between the three sports, the Team Jack Foundation said approximately $35,000 was raised towards research for pediatric brain cancer.

“This means a lot. It means the world to me to see the Plano community come out and support this cause,” Burkhead said. “It’s something that started in Nebraska and to bring it down to Texas and see so many people from the community – people I went to high school with and people who just wanted to rally around the cause – it really means a lot to me.”
