Powell Wins 'Top Gun' PC Competition

Dec. 10, 2013

Fall Top Gun PC Competition

Congratulations to Colin Powell for winning the Bob and Karen Wortham "Top Gun" Practice Court Competition. Powell took home a $3,000 prize, as well as an 18-inch bronze statuette of former PC Director Matt "Mad Dog" Dawson.

Runner-up Jessica Underwood received a $1,000 prize. Semifinalists Matt Greenberg and Jacqueline Hamer each received $500.

While director of Practice Court, Dawson was nationally renowned for the success of his mock trial teams, which won two national competitions and nearly every regional competition over a period of 10 years. He also was responsible for starting the tradition of holding mini-trial competitions during his tenure of director of PC.

Twice each year Baylor Law awards the "Mad Dog," an 18-inch bronze statuette of Dawson, to the winner of the Wortham Top Gun mini-trial competition. A life-size bronze statue of Dawson is located outside the Practice Court classroom at the law school.
