I was eleven, saw Richard Nixon sit across the stadium from me at the 40 yard line. I carry that with me today, but what I carry most and foremost is that James Street beat my Razorbacks that day! I cried, for days, but everyday since I have appreciated and thought what a young man and competitor James Street was and what his heart was made of. I have respected him and who he is from that day forward! I watched him play his heart out to beat us! From his run to his pass to phachel, which was perfect! I never held a grudge to James Street from that day, but admired him so much as a human being and a true heart competitor! If his heart gave out, I am so sorry to his wife, and five boys, but he gave so much of it, God Blessed him early, which he deserves! I was disappointed I did not see more of his leaving us on tv than there was! James Street, you beat my Hogs in the game of the Century, but you were someone I always wished I was! Even if for Texas!

I was in the eighth when I saw James play at the old Lobo stadium he was my hero from then on.Few people know this but it was James that stopped the high school policy of giving a letter jacket every time you lettered.From '67 onward one jacket per year regardless of letters you earned that year.James earned 12 letter jackets from soph.to sen.years.4 each year for football,basketball,track & baseball.A very gifted athlete!May God bless James Street and family,Bob Gilchrist LHS'70

God's Promise
God never promised a life without pain,
Laughter without tears or sun without rain.
But He did promise strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears and the light for the way,
And for all who believe In His Heaven above
He rewards their faith In His everlasting love.
Janie and family..

one of the greats of Texas longhorn football has left us. he certainly made a name for himself playing for a legendary coach in Darrel Royal. He certainly was a gentleman both on and off the field. may our dear lord grant his family peace and comfort during this sad time. rest in peace Jim and thank you for your outstanding career
