James Street Family
I wish to express my condolences for your loss. Although i only knew James his senior year in high school, I was fortunate to be his high school baseball coach that year. Not only was James an outstanding athlete; but more importantly, he was an outstanding person. Although he will be missed very much, he has left many happy memories that cannot be taken away. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

one of the greats of Texas longhorn football has left us. he certainly made a name for himself playing for a legendary coach in Darrel Royal. He certainly was a gentleman both on and off the field. may our dear lord grant his family peace and comfort during this sad time. rest in peace Jim and thank you for your outstanding career

We called James Jimmy back then - my family cared for Jimmy allot.

On Saturday, December 7, 1969, while I worked at Sterlings Jewelry on NW Hwy, a microcosm of that game of the century was being created. Very few rings or watches were being bought let alone sold . . . everyone's attention was focused there in the Ozarks. We cheered & shared your joy!
James, you led the team as you always did . . .
yet your presence then is the same as it will always be represented by

Any aspiring athlete who grew up in Longview in the 60's like I did considered James a role model. When he and some teammates made a victory lap after the Cotton Bowl win over Norte Dame in the spring of 1970, he was introduced by Coach Don Holley at an assembly at Longview High School. Coach Holley recounted how James had lettered in 4 sports all 3 years in high school. The coach jokingly lamented that James didn't play golf
