Baylor student sets world record by signing huge football at DFW

Jana Brusek went to get a cup of coffee Thursday and ended up helping break a world record.

Brusek, a sophomore volleyball player at Baylor University, was with her teammates in Terminal A at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport as they awaited a flight to Ohio. She was on her way to Starbucks when she was asked to sign a giant inflatable football outside the Dallas Cowboys Club. When she did, she broke the Guinness World Record for most signatures on a piece of sports memorabilia.

Brusek added the 516th signature to the football at an event sponsored by the airport. Passengers, airport workers and Dallas Cowboys great Drew Pearson signed the football, and a Guinness representative verified all signatures.
