So many knew of James as a larger than life athlete. I knew of him as a larger than life husband and Dad. Watching his sons grow up over the past 12 years I always complimented James and Janie on what an incredibly fine job they had done in raising boys any parent would be proud of. The fact that James was so bound up with his family makes his loss that much harder, but we can hope that the part of James that will always be with all of his family will bring some measure of comfort.

Good night sweet Prince,

Much too young in body and mind to leave us. James and I competed against each othe in high school football and track while I was a Tyler Lee Rebel, and we became friends. We worked together at John Prothro's ranch with other UT players for a couple of summers while in college. I will always remember James' laughing smile, good natured ribbing and competitive, in a good way, spirit. You will be missed, Little Lobo.

I saw every football game James started. I was in 6th and 7th grade when he played football at Texas. I remember telling my mama at Arkansas, "Don't worry, Mama, James won't let us lose." Years later, I said the same thing to my husband at Ohio State about Vince Young. I feel privileged that I not only got to watch James Street play football, I also had the opportunity to get to know him. James was the kind of

There are several connections that allowed me to cross paths more than once with James Street...always friendly, humble, and would look you in the eye while speaking with conviction. A Texas treasure that will be missed for sure by those who knew you well, met you a few times , or simply admired you on the field.
