LINDALE, TX (KLTV) -   Garden Valley Golf Club hosted the first annual B.U. Carlisle Classic on Friday.   Joining the green and gold army was Baylor head football coach Art Briles.  Briles is trying to bring the Bears program to elite status in the always tough Big 12 conference. He's seeing more and more Baylor fans in East Texas.

"We're starting to and it's really great because we love East Texas recruiting," said Briles.  "It's got great athletes and great coaches. The high school programs do a great job here. To have Baylor people tied in out here, that helps us in recruiting tremendously."
