After The Home...

Rusty Russell, in January 1971, as he is inducted to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. In this photo Russell is 77 years-old and had been retired from coaching football only eight years. Coach Russell was installed to the Hall of Fame that day along with other sports notables like Jack Johnson, heavy weight champion of the world. The crowd was close to 1,000 people and included Coach Joe Paterno and his entire Penn State football team as well as Coach Darrell Royal with his Texas Longhorns whose teams would meet the next day in the 1971 Cotton Bowl Classic.
