Unstoppable against Nebraska
A few days late on #77, but click on link for Shearer highlights. Around 1:15 shows one good way to stop an option attack! Shearer was in that short list of DL that really were "unblockable."
University of Texas Interior Lineman Brad Shearer (c. 1977)
#73 Jonathan Scott. All American OT.
OTs in 2005 included: Jonathan Scott, Justin Blalock, and Tony Hills.
OGs in 2005 included: Kasey Studdard, Will Allen, and Cedric Dockery.
C was Lyle Sendlein.
Yeah, we were OLU.
Texas City’s Diron Talbert
All conference 1965 and team captain 1966. My love for the Cowboys caused me not to think much of him (his feud with Roger Staubach made for good press in 1972). Age and wisdom have made me appreciate both he and his brothers as fine representatives of the university.
The Talberts were great Longhorn players.
I didn't like the Redskins either, but they always seemed to have some of the scrappiest, meanest, sometimes undersized, but toughest guys in the NFC in the 70s - 80s (Talbert, Chris Hanburger, Dave Butz--definitely not undersized, Riggins, etc.).
72 - Will Allen
#72 Don Talbert
1989 All-American Ed Cunningham and Ken Hackemack.
And let’s not forget
#72 All-American Roger Roesler faces off with Ty Warren on a strange day in College Station 1999.
That was a weird weird day. Nothing worked in our favor that day.
I can remember when they blocked an extra point and took it back for a safety getting a really bad feeling. And it just got weirder from there.
Come to think of it, any time the aggys have taken one (in the least 20 to 25 years anyway) its been pretty much a weird, very off day, where nothing works in our favor and it looked like we didn't want to be there. That is what it takes for an aggy victory.
I thought it took just the right amount of testicular squeezing.
I believe 1999 was the bonfire game. They did not block a PAT and return for a safety. We did after their first score.
#72 Mason Walters
Walters is one I think we all had Connor Williams type hopes for, and they just never were realized.
#71 Kermit, Texas’ Leo Brooks.........
........ chasing down the Aggie’s Larry Stegent in 1968.
All-SWC and All-American in 1969 despite suffering a season-ending knee injury midway through the season. Pro Bowl 1976.
Father of starting offensive lineman Corby Brooks.
#71 Chris Hall
#71 Ray Dowdy -- DT.
Played on 1970 National Championship Team. First Team All-SWC 1971 and 1972. Taught and/or coached at the following high schools: Tatum, Henderson, Del Valle, Austin Anderson, Mabank, and Huntsville.
Ray Dowdy and Greg Ploetz (SWC Defensive POY) were both 1st Team All-SWC DTs in 1971. The next time that happened (2 interior UT DTs 1st team all conference) was with Casey Hampton and Shaun Rogers.
#70 Leonard Davis
#70 Temple’s Bob Simmons....
.... and Joe Aboussie lead Mike Presley around the left side Pyle Field 1973.
Bob was all-conference for three years and All-American as a junior and senior; consensus AA in 1975. Hall of Honor 1995.
Member of the 1963 National Championship team. Two time all conference, consensus All American. Fifth in the Heisman voting 1963.
Gone way too soon.
I wish they would have continued to take the player pics from the ground like this. I love these.
Its funny, I always wonder what players are thinking in these and how many shots it takes to get them. I always used to be very impatient with pics just wanting them to be over thinking "geez how many times do I have to do this". Now how many years later I wonder if the players love them as much as I do.
#69 Dan Neil
Unfortunately Adam sits between me and the field (seat in front of me) (sort of the same as the quote), I have to look around him to get a see the game when everyone is standing... I can't catch a break.
#68 Ken Hackemack
Pictured here with current defensive line coach Oscar Giles. At 6’9”, he was an imposing individual who played along side with some great defensive linemen (Llewellyn, Patton, and Jeter among others). Somewhat of a free spirit. Team captain 1989.
#68 Derek Kerstetter
I had to find a smaller picture to load so Desperado beat me to it but here's Derek Kirkstetter #68.
I arrived at UT campus Spring of 95.
I was waiting for a shuttle bus near Belmont when a bus stopped, and the springs started creaking under the weight of something enormous. The bus tilted towards the bus stop and I remember wondering if it would tip over. Then the doors opened and Leonard Davis stepped off the bus. With each step, the springs creaked some more, and the bus righted itself.
I remember looking at him in awe. Not only was he just a huge human being, but he had no fat on him at all. Just an enormous mountain of muscle.
He was / is an extremely nice, humble guy too, so I have heard.
Joe gets a jump on the competition to post the great #60, the late Tommy Nobis!!
A little premature elation on Joe's part.
#67 Jay Humphrey
This guy was a road grader that Ricky Williams ran behind a lot. He also protected Major Applewhite. He was one of the best lineman in 98'.
