I was at UT for part of James' time there, and one evening I saw him at the Broken Spoke. He didn't know me from Adam, but you wouldn't have known that from the way he treated my friend and me. Classy guy!!!

I am very very sorry for the early passing of a very great man. He will always be one of my favorite football heroes! My wife and I sat behind him and his wife several years ago at a TEXAS-O U game. I told James that I listened to the national championship game of 1969 game on Armed Forces Radio in Vietnam. James and his wife were so kind to talk with me during the game and thanked me for

James Street will always be a hero to me. He and Coach Royal gave me the best football memories of my life. It was great to watch James's son Huston achieve all the things he has done at Texas and in professional baseball. James Street was not just a remarkable person and athlete; he has been a remarkable father and human being. May God comfort his family who will always have the knowledge of the love he had for them

My sincerest condolences to the Street family. I emailed Mr. Street about a year ago and asked if he would sign a photo for my collection. He responded with a great action shot from the Cotton Bowl victory against Notre Dame and a letter about the National Championship season. It's something I'll always treasure. A fine man who will surely be missed.

Watched The Shootout as a 12 year old. It's the first football game where i can recall being totally involved. I became an Arkansas fan that day - but my respect for James Street also started at the same time. i'm certain he made a phenomenal impact on his family and those fortunate to know him. Taken way too soon.

I was 11 years old when I watched James lead the Texas Longhorns to a national championship in football. He was a hero and someone who I held in awe growing up. I became an attorney and member of Texas Trial Lawyers Assn. I was walking down the hall at a seminar, and James came up to me and said, "You're Dan Perkins aren't you?". I almost fell to the ground, that he somehow took the time to know who
