BREAKING: Texas Longhorns Legendary Hall Of Famer Has Died

The Texas Longhorns are in mourning this week after the death of a legendary player.

Jack Collins Jr., one of the best all-purpose players in the history of Texas football, passed away on Friday evening, the school announced on its Twitter page.

Collins was a member of the team from 1959 through 1961. He was one of the most versatile players in the Longhorns’ history.

In 1957, Collins led Highland Park to an 11-1 record and a Class 4A state tile on 1,473 rushing yards, 600 receiving yards, and scored 148 points, according to Texas.

Collins earned All-Southwest Conference honors in 1959 as a sophomore at Texas. His Texas teams held a 26-6-1 record in three seasons and he helped Royal build Texas into a college football power.

He led the Longhorns in rushing, receiving, total offense, and all-purpose yards in 1959, and also helped lead the team to a conference title and berth in the Cotton Bowl that season.

Collins and his father, Jack Collins Sr., were the first father-son duo inducted into Texas’ Hall of Honor.

He had a brief football career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys before a career as a banking official.
