Justin McLamore and Jason Reeves
I think Justin McLemore & Ryan Nunez each lettered for 12 years.
Dakari Pearson - he had a great feel for the game and a great kid.
Some of my favorite RBs that are well-known but not much mentioned:
Another well-known name that is a favorite for me, but kind of lost in discussion is Michael Griffin.
I know these are kind of off-topic....
ok how about Chris Ogbannaya?
And Tre Newton.
Willie Mack Garza
Throw in his cousin, James Lott
Did not know he was Plan II. Staff needs to seriously bone up on Plan II to better pitch the Stanford type recruits.
DB Tom Landry
Others that come to mind. Eddie Phillips, Ricky Brown, Terry Melancon, George Brucks, Ragan Gennusa, Ahmard Hall, Jim Bob Bizzell, Stan Mauldin
Was trying to think of the name of Ahmard Hall.
TE Pat Fitzgerald
terry Melanson had one of the greatest games of any DB against OU.
Reagan Genusa was a great HS QB I think between him and Teddy Lejadahl, Texas paid for five knee surgeries. Sure turned out to be a great artist.
Joe Bob Bissel (sp). Stills holds the Texas HS record for interceptions. Really small guy that hit like a locomotive. Wish he had lasted longer.
He probably doesn't fall under the "lesser known" category, but he was a 3-star in a much ballyhoo'd class . . . Brian Robison.
+1 on Mike Luck
John Teltschick - linebacker posing as a punter
“Put in Murdock!!!”
[shout heard many a time after another 3 and out series with a different QB playing ...]
Johnny "Ham" Jones, #25---walked by his picture in the trophy case of my high school every day---MVP of the Sun Bowl his senior year. I once met Earl and informed him that I was always told "he was Johnny Ham's blocking back!" (yes, Earl got a kick out of that!)
Sabre, you'right, his name's not Jim Bob, it's Joe Bob Bizzell. Played at Permian and was a hard hitting 5-7 145 pound DB at Texas (soaking wet).
Gene Chilton... Gene, Gene the Coke machine!
Robin Sendlein & Eric Holle
Another vote for Ricky Brown. Imagine being a defender where even if you got past the first Ricky, the second one was about to run you over.
I’m late to this thread. I know a few SA ex players since I’m from there.
Sloan Thomas (Lived in BJ and Roy’s shadow)
Justin McLemore (played on bad teams)
My favourite underdog was James Brown (got screwed his senior year)
The guy I hung out with back in the day but more well known, Blake Brockermeyer (played on bad teams)
Bill Boy Bryant
Tommy Ford,San Angelo stallion
One worth considering is Edwin Simmons, Freshman RB in 1983. He was just developing as a RB and killed the Sooners but unfortunately was lost for the season with an injury in the SMU game. I think with a healthy Simmons we win the Cotton Bowl and NC with the muffed punt being irrelevant.
1963 QB Tommy Wade. Without him we would not have beat the Aggies but his passing late in the 4th Q was the difference. Without him we would not have won our first NC in football and Navy would not have played in the Cotton Bowl for obvious reasons.
