    The Fred Bednarski story is a testimony to the strength of the human spirit, family, and faith that shares the horror of WWII, new beginnings in America, and college sports. The story needs to be told about "The Kicker" who survives a Nazi internment camp to become the first soccer-style kicker in the history of football- and he is a Longhorn.

    WWII for the Bednarski family

    EVERY NIGHT ENDS THE SAME, AS THE ENTIRE FAMILY GETS ON THEIR KNEES AND RECITES THE LORD'S PRAYER.......... IF ONE DAILY ACT DEFINES THE BEDNARSKI'S IT IS THE RECITATION OF THIS PRAYER. THEY BELIEVE IT, AND THEY BELIEVE THAT THEY WILL BE DELIVERED FROM THE EVIL FORCES THAT HAVE UPROOTED THEM FROM THE VILLAGE IN OCCUPIED POLAND WHERE THEY WERE LOADED INTO CATTLE CARS ON THE TRAIN THAT HAS TAKEN THEM TO AUSTRIA NEARLY 1,000 MILES AWAY.
