I grew up in the neighboring town of Greggton, now a part of Longview. There was hardly a time that James was not mentioned as a stellar athlete in baseball and football. I also had the privilege of serving in the National Guard with James some time later. He was revered and admired by people of all ages. Growing up we all wanted to be like James. He will be truly missed.

I am so sorry to learn at this extremely late date of James' passing. Though I only met and knew Him for a short time in my insurance career, I considered him a good friend. In the 1980's we shared time together laughing as he shared stories of he and Mick and he and my hometown boy, Bill B. One time, James, or as we called, Street, Street and I went out to watch the Olympic Equestrian trials at the Kentucky Horse Farm outside of Lexington. Not quite understanding how the trials worked, we picked a spot and waited for the horses to coming through in a group. Didn't happen! After a long waiting period a single horse came loping by, jumps a fence and goes over the hill. We thought, man that one is way ahead of the field. A few minutes later another horse lopes by, jumps the fence and goes over the hill. Street looks at me and says, "this is about a much fun as watching a haircut. Ready to go?" Yep, I said. Street, as you well know, was a friend to anyone he met. I'm glad I could call James my friend, too. He loved his family. That was very evident as he spoke of his family. God bless you.

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!
