#81 Pat Fitzgerald
Sam Acho #81
Greatest Bridge City Longhorn not named Steve Wooster in history. In a 1990 monster game against Texas Tech, he totaled five sacks, three quarterback hurries, a blocked kick, six tackles for a loss and nine tackles total.
There is a story of a coveted defensive line prospect getting in a fistfight with Dronett during an OV to Austin (they played the same position) over future playing time. Needless to say, the prospect signed with a&m.
Gone too soon, resquiat en pace.
Bill Zapalac, No. 80 shown during the "Big Shootout" against Arkansas in 1969.

What do you suppose the over/under is on full sets of adult teeth in the crowd behind the bench?
I would love to know what they are looking at. Bill Zapalac, who played defense, is not on the field, so I am going to guess the UT offense was on the field (however, he could have just been out of the lineup temporarily if the defense was on the field). The people in the photo are looking to the right of the bench and mostly across the field which means they were looking toward the north side of the stadium where the UT offense was positioned in quarters 2 and 4. DKR looks tense so the game is not decided yet, though others make it looks like something big has just happened. Not much exciting happened for the offense on the north side of the field (James Street's touchdown run, Randy Peschel's catch, Ted Koy's subsequent run and Jim Bertlesen's touchdown run all happened far down the south side of the field, so none of that can be what they are looking at). If the defense was on the field and Bill Zapalac was just not in the lineup, the Danny Lester interception happened in the north end zone across the field from the Texas bench and the last-minute Tom Campbell interception happened on the north side of the field, though next to the UT sideline, so DKR and BZ would not appear to be looking at that latter interception. On the other hand, it could just be a good play by either the Texas offense or defense.....
#79 Terry Tausch
I didn't realize until looking into more information about him following the post of this photo that he passed away suddenly in March 2020, at the young age of 61. Very sad. R.I.P.
Tausch was a bad ***. We need more like him.

Transfer Portal? Flood is with UT and you know they had to be huge Longhorns growing up.
