James Street Obituary
James Street, the fiery, undersized quarterback who led Texas to an unbeaten season and football national championship in 1969, died Monday morning.

Street, who arrived at Texas as a seventh-string quarterback from Longview, finished his college career with a perfect 20-0 record.

He was best known for his 42-yard touchdown run on a scramble against Arkansas and his pass to Randy Peschel on a crucial fourth-and-3 to set up the winning touchdown in the Game of the Century to nail down the regular-season national title.
