Freddie’s inspirational story

Freddie Steinmark was a starting safety for the Longhorns’ national champion football team in 1969. He endures as a Texas symbol of courage and perseverance – and an inspiration to us all. Following UT’s victory against No. 2 Arkansas, a cancerous tumor was discovered in Freddie’s left thigh, resulting in amputation of his leg. He returned to the sidelines on crutches to support his team’s triumph over Notre Dame in Cotton Bowl. Freddie passed away in Houston two years later.

    I bleed burnt orange. I was a student during the Freddie Steinmark era and still remember as vividly as if it was today the cotton bowl game in Dallas. We all need the tenacity of Freddie in our lives.
