Former Horns in the pros

College football is awesome. I could watch it and talk about it all day, but Horns and former Horns are having success in other arenas as well.

*Justin Leonard: The former Longhorn golfer was a member of the winning 2005 American President’s Cup team over the weekend in Virginia. Leonard had a solid competition going 3-1-1 that was capped by a 4 & 3 singles victory on Sunday over Tim Clark.

*Derrick Johnson: The Kansas City Chief’s rookie is off to a great start, 17 tackles and a forced fumble. He could very easily be Defensive Rookie of the Year at season’s end.

*Other NFL Horns of note: Casey Hampton (Steelers), Shaun Rogers (Lions), Nathan Vasher (Bears), Priest Holmes (Chiefs), Christy Simms (Bucs)

*Roger Clemens: He seems to get better with age. At 43, Clemens is 12-8 with a sub .200 ERA and will be a key to the Astros’ playoff success.

*Huston Street: The A’s are hoping for the postseason. In his first full season, Street is trying to take them there. His stats speak loudly: 5 – 1 with 22 saves and a 1.66 ERA.

*Kyle McCulloch: This current Longhorn right hander finished off a spectacular year by begin name to the 2005 College Summer All-America squad as selected by Baseball America. In 25 innings of work, McCulloch went 4-0 with 22Ks in 25 innings and an ERA of 1.44.

Who did I miss? Let us know in the comments section.

Only the best young WR in the NFL, the Legend Roy Williams.

Just wait until Jeff Garcia comes back. The Lions will still have a chance to win that division once a real NFl QB starts throwing to Roy and not Joey H.
 
Probably the most prolific former UT athletes are the ones who get overshadowed by the major sports. Case in point, the 2002-4 UT swim team, headed by gold medalists Ian Crocker, Brendan Hansen, and Aaron Piersol. Those three are probably the most dominant swimmers in their respective strokes in the world, and along with Michael Phelps, break relay records left and right.
 
Hey you forgot to mention TexasEx Matthew McConawho-the-hell-cares is coming out with a new movie with Al Pacino. He doesnt come out with many nowadays so its nice to recognize our beloved bongo player.
 
A few more NFLers -
Quentin Jammer, Leonard Davis, Cory Redding, Bo Scaife, Nathan Vasher
