UT Student Jonathan Dror creates new anthem for Texas Longhorns - Put 'Em Up!
In his 2014 Fall semester at the University of Texas at Austin, Jonathan Dror submitted a video of himself to his school’s Campus Story on Snapchat. Singing a catchy tune he had made up in his dorm room: “Put ‘em up for the Texas, Put ‘em up for the Fight, Put ‘em up for the Burnt Orange, and Put ‘em up for the White!” His short 10 second video received 20,000+ views in just 24 hours. This short video quickly became a trending topic in Austin, and that’s when the idea for an entire song and music video came to life. Jonathan knew this would energize and pump up his school’s spirit and excitement for their Texas Longhorns.
"Put 'Em Up" features a star-studded cast with appearances from quarterbacks Tyrone Swoopes and Jerrod Heard, #1 freshmen recruit LB Malik Jefferson, WR Lorenzo Joe, WR Roderick Bernard, WR Dorian Leonard. Former Student Government President Kori Rady and VP Taylor Strickland and Current President Xavier Rotnofsky and VP Rohit Mandalapu also make appearances.
Turn up the volume, press play and Put 'Em Up! We're sure you'll be hearing this song all over the University of Texas campus this season!
