Golden Memories of Bygone Seasons...

Rusty Russell's gold football charm at top has been handed down through the family for 90 years. It commemorates his election to the All T.I.A.A. (Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association) Football Team as an end in 1921. In addition it commemorates his team conference championship that year.

Mighty Mite Walter "Sleepy" Finigan, #21, passed away in September of 2007 just a couple of days after receiving a signed copy of the book Twelve Mighty Orphans. His grandson, Jody Vincik of Gun Barrel City, Texas, kindly sent us photos of his Masonic Home jewelry - a watch, ring and football charm -- that are posted above with permission. The ring is from the class of 1942.
