Just a reminder and to educate the younger crowd, in 1963 an undefeated Baylor team came to Austin with Don Trull & Lawrence Elkins. Could Mike Campbell design a defense to stop the highflying Baylor offense. Everyone has seen the photo of the Duke Carlise's interception to save the game, BUT few remember that earlier Elkins turned the Horns secondary every way but loose and was running wide open. Just as Trull cranked up, Scott Appleton hit him and the pass missed Trull by about 40 yards.
Great player, who suffered some hardships in life, but got things straightened out. Gone too soon. A true Longhorn Legend
