Overview

With three national championships, more than 80 All-American and nearly 800 victories, the University of Texas has a football history and tradition among the richest in the nation. This book offers a look at a small slice of that history and tradition, with updates on the lives of those who made it possible. Among these are: Johnny Treadwell, whose "Now we've got 'em where we want 'em" challenge became the emblem of the Darrell Royal teams of the early 1960s; former head coach David McWilliams, whose departure from the coaching ranks may have eventually helped to save his life; Duke Carlisle, the star of three crucial showdowns in a national championship season, now enjoying life in the oil business in Mississippi; Julius Whittier, UT's first black football letterman, who finished with two degrees and has been a successful Dallas attorney for 20 years: Ben Tompkins, who played baseball with Satchel Paige, spent 20 years as an NFL game official, and is still practicing law at 75; T Jones enshrined in the Hall of Honor at both UT and Texas Tech; Ben Procter, who held a UT receiving record for 40 years still lives in house he bought from Lyndon Johnson's sister, and is finishing up the second volume of a biography of William Randolph Hearst; Alan Lowry, who answers the gnawing question about whether he stepped out of bounds on the run that beat Alabama in the Cotton Bowl; James Saxton, the swift All-American who survived a near-fatal illness; Roosevelt Leaks, who after a lengthy NFL career still spends time on the family farm where he grew up; the Campbell twins, who as the sons of defensive coordinator "Iron Mike" Campbell, willed themselves into becoming starters on anationalchampionship team; Randy Peschel, the man who caught Right 53 Veer Pass; James Street, the man who threw it; and former Outland winner Scott Appleton, who destroyed his life with alcohol and then rebuilt it, becoming a minister who touched countless lives before his death.
