My memories of the entire Street family in Longview--Mrs. Helen at Riff's and Mary and James as classmates in junior high and high school--are among my favorites of growing up in Longview on the "south side of town". James was always a most wonderful, caring individual plus a tremendous friend. His athletic abilities placed Longview "on the map" in the athletic arena of all four sports.

A special memory of mine occurred when I took Driver's Ed (Behind the Wheel) course

Dear Janie and Street Family Members,
Our whole family was stunned and saddened upon hearing the sad news of James passing. James was such positive and energetic person, I just pictured us hanging around Westlake gyms and sports fields watching grandkids someday - relishing every moment as we did coaching our sons - Huston & Patrick and then Hanson & Drew.
Far beyond all those wonderful, legendary stories about James being the greatest competitor in Longhorn sports history, it was James

James I will never forget the only time I ever met you was at a book signing in Houston. You didn't know me, yet you spent an hour talking about the Wishbone T offense with me....the lead step, the adjustment step, the mesh point and all those wonderful stories about Worster. I was a wishbone quarterback in high school and I was loving every minute of our conversation. This in a small way explifies what kind of person you were. Always giving of your time. Rest in peace my friend, and tell Coach Royal hello.

I was fortunate to be at UT when Street played. It was an exciting time...thanks for the memories, James . A good man. My thoughts & prayers are with his family.

My brother, John, and James grew up together...playing in the streets of Longview and on the baseball field. Now that they are both in heaven, I am sure old times will be rehashed over again.
Being 6 years younger, most of my brother's friends looked upon me as the little brat always trying to hang around. But James was different! He was always kind to me and never tried to get rid of me. I remember once when

I was a senior in high school when UT won, and I was in love with James. Fast

To Janie and the entire Street Family. My Dears, I am so terribly sorry for the untimely loss of James. It shocked me to the core. That emotional low, however, was replaced by a great warmth and a deep feeling of fellowship with my old UT alum from the glory days of 1969-1971.

I originally met James and you, Janie, at the old Flagon and Trencher where a lot of the players hung out to play pool and to have fun.
