Texas Wishbone Play: Longhorns Pay Tribute To Darrell Royal With Trick Play (VIDEO)


Darrell Royal Tribute

check out this new  interesting article.

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Longhorns paid tribute to former football coach Darrell Royal during their game against Iowa State on Saturday, honoring the man who won 11 conference titles and two national championships in his 20 years leading the program.

Royal, who died Wednesday at age 88, won 167 games at Texas from 1957 to 1976, a mark that still stands as a school record.

Texas ran its first offensive play from the wishbone formation Royal introduced to major college football in 1968. Instead of a run, Texas pitched the ball to Jaxon Shipley, who tossed it back to quarterback David Ash, who passed to tight end Greg Daniels for 47 yards, adding some razzle-dazzle to an old-school formation.

Flags flew at half-staff at the stadium that bears Royal’s name and white “DKR” initials celebrity porn pics were painted inside the burnt-orange Longhorn logo at midfield. Texas players also wore a similar helmet logo, which will remain part of the uniform the rest of the season.

A public memorial ceremony is scheduled for noon Tuesday at the Frank Erwin Center basketball arena. Royal will be buried at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, an honor typically reserved for the state’s military and political leaders.

University officials illuminated the iconic UT Tower with burnt orange floodlights in Royal’s honor on Wednesday night.
