Yeanlings Victorious Unparalleled recruiting success for The University of Texas football Longhorns in 1967 paid off in spades when Bill Ellington ' s second freshman football team rode to a 5-0 record and the unofficial Southwest Confer- ence championship for six first-year teams. Ellington got championship mileage from an offense which ran up 201 points, much of it by virtue of tailback Steve Worster ' s 546 yards and 48 points, split end Danny Lester ' s six pass receptions for 217 yards, and the play of his alternating quarterbacks, Eddie Phillips and Monty Johnson. The Yearlings opened with a 35-14 shell- ing of Baylor ' s Cubs as Worster debuted with 29 carries for 192 yards and two scores. Fullback Billy Dale teamed with Worster vail year in overrunning opponents, with the high- point versus SMU ' s Colts as the Yearlings breezed past them 58-17, behind 112 yards for Worster, Dale ' s two scores, and an 82- yard scoring pass, Johnson to Lester. The freshmen also rolled over Rice (36-12), TCU (38-7), and Texas A M (34-22) in impres- sive junior-league games. Fullback Billy Dale (24) dove for yardage against SMU ' s Colts as Tim Parker (55) blocked FRONT ROW: Charlie Rogers, Joe Nobis, David Holubec, Fred Steinmark, Baxter Braband, Donnie Wigginton, Danny Lester, Monty Johnson, Billy Schoppe, George Shannon, Allan Avant, David Richardson, Doyce Tomlin, Terry Collins, Billy Dale, Jimmy Gunn, Eddie Phillips, Johnny Robinson, Buddy Hudglns, Happy Feller, Jay Cormier.

TCU won despite a gargantuan Rob Layne effort on a 42-yard field goal, despite Gilbert ' s record 96-yard sprint in the third quarter and another for 61 yards which set up a Bradley score. Otherwise, TCU held Gilbert in check, stopped the theretofore hot-handed Bradley, and ended Texas championship hopes when Kenny Post burst one yard for the winning score with 1:04 remaining. Shuffling toward the end, Texas was living with slim hopes for champion ' s honors and Royal ' s promise that he would not take a 6-4 team to a bowl game, even if invited. Later, as the Aggies celebrated their 10-7 victory on Turkey Day, the Longhorns ' mid-season fire was thoroughly extinguished. For three quarters, Bradley, Gilbert, and the Texas forwards could not dent the stiff frontals of Old Army, and tiny Charley Riggs ' 32-yard field goal comprised A AA ' s 3-0 advantage at intermission. Stopped in the first half with three first downs and 76 yards of total offense, Texas continued as a zephyr through the third quarter: the punting of Bradley and only two A M first downs after half time held the Farmers at bay. Gilbert ' s injury on the second half kickoff was much of the reason. When Texas finally began to move, Bradley ended a 56-yard fourth period drive with two-yard skirt off the left end for a score. But prosperity was too much for the Longhorns. The issue was settled permanently in the next 16 seconds as A AA quarterback Edd Hargett, who had been checked effectively by UT ' s defense most of the day, found wingback Bob Long on a fly pattern for a score that measured 80 yards. Riggs ' kick made it 10-7, A AA. Texas still had time for two more drives, but A M ' s defense was spurred by its three-point lead and the smell of a Southwest Conference champion- shipone which had eluded them since 1957. Linebacker Buster Adami ' s interception at the A AA 15-yard line stopped the first comeback. And still Texas sniped away, but finally Tom Higgins ' catch of a Bradley pass with 29 seconds left was ruled out of bounds and a slow, painful death finally was ended. A ' 67: Year of the ' Horns, begun so enthusiastically in early September, now was November disappointment. Fall ' 67: Where Did All the Victories Go? 80
