Future star emerges Football After returning to prominence with last year ' s winning season, it appeared as though Texas had finally found the road back to the top. Although there were injuries to both the offensive and defensive lines, it was clear that senior Shannon Kelley would start as quar- terback for the Longhorns. No one gave the subject a second thought until the game against New Mexico, when Mark Murdock, redshirt freshman, had his moment on the field. Put in the game in the second quarter, Murdock contributed to a 47-0 Longhorn victory. Murdock also re- placed Kelley, who got off to shaky starts, against the University of North Texas and the University of Oklahoma. The pivotal game came on Oct. 15, when Texas met Arkansas at Memorial Stadium. Murdock entered the game in the third quar- ter with Texas down 24-3. Although the Horns lost the game, Murdock brought them back to a close score of 27-24 and almost produced a last minute miracle rivaling last RUN FAKE: Mark Murdock, freshman quarterback, fakes a handoff to senior tailback Eric Metcalf before rifling a pass downfield against Arkansas. photos by Robert Kirkham year ' s game against Arkansas. Murdock said he felt excited after the Ar- kansas game, and he was not alone. After his impressive showing in front of the home- coming crowd, Murdock won the starting quarterback job and gained the support of Head Coach David McWilliams, his team- mates and Longhorn fans. The transition from Kelley to Murdock went smoothly, with no tension or harsh feelings between the two. " Shannon is a real classy guy. We got to be friends before the season and I know that this is hard for him to handle, " Murdock said. Murdock played high school football in Round Rock and chose to attend UT for its proximity and its academics. " I wanted to play football in front of my family and friends, " he said. Despite his sudden thrust into the burnt orange spotlight, Murdock still has the same philosophy about football as he did while playing high school football. " It ' s still the same game. Now it ' s just bigger, with more support, and there are a lot more talented people on the other side of the ball, " he said.
