      I was living in Austin during DKR time @ UT and have fond memories of his coaching style. Gentle man, innovator of game, made the "Wishbone" the style of Longhorn football. I remember Duke Carlisle, the great, gutsy "Right 53 Veer Pass" to Randy Peschel (my fellow high school classmate), the Cotton Bowl. I admired DKR so much during my time in Austin and after leaving Texas, too. He had high standards, great vision in life and football and I will always cherish the time I got to see him there @ UT. Every time I hear 'The Eyes of Texas are upon you", I stand up and sing along, remembering the glory days of DKR."Hook 'em Horns!"

      Gentleman, family man, sportsman. Although he came to us as a former fierce rival on the field, he quickly personified the competitive spirit and the greatness of this university as its most recognizable representative. He led UT to great accomplishments and widspread acclaim in athletics; but even more important, he did so while instilling in the athletes he coached the virtues of hard work and common decency that he knew were the keys to self-respect and success in life. Few stars in the university's firmament outshine DKR as a molder of young lives and a builder of good will for the University of Texas.
