Forewords by Darrell K Royal and Mack Brown set the tone for this unprecedented collection of stories, thoughts, and memories of some of Texas' best football players.
There is a common thread that runs through all of the stories. In choosing Texas, each of these "boys" had the courage to challenge himself to compete with the best and against the best. To a man, they were challenged and changed forever by this tradition, this place, this "University of the first class."
From Howard Terry, who played in the 30s, to Earl Campbell, UT’s first Heisman Trophy winner, to Vince Young, commander of the 2005 National Championship team, these men tell compelling stories of the spirit of Texas, the expectations of excellence, the pride of having worn the burnt orange and white.
"Sit back and prepare to see how over the years, The University of Texas has impacted lives. While the crux of this is supposed to be just about football players, you quickly realize that this book transcends football and really touches how U.T. Austin impacts lives." - Jason Bronstad, Amazon.com Customer Reviews
