Playing at the University of Texas in any sport is an honor and offers cherished memories. One of my most cherished memories was getting to meet people like James Street. James was someone that I grew up admiring as a child in South Austin. He was a class act and will be forever missed. God Bless James Street and his family.

It's the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you Janie and the boys will remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles. And even though it seems like you never recover from your loss, it is these memories that will help push the pain away and bring back the smiles. Coach Royal needed a new QB and indeed summoned a loyal follower. May his spirit experience celestial peace and heavenly bliss and forever Hook Em.

James Street was a great quarterback and an even better baseball pitcher. However, I remember him as a nice guy who happened to be a great Longhorn hero. James, we will miss you. Thanks for all the great memories and sympathies to your family. Rest in Peace.

My heart goes out to the entire Street family for their loss of James. James Street not only was a tremendous athelete but an even better man. Number 16 should be retired at UT not only for what James did on the field but off as well.James puched his ticket to heaven a long time ago.May God Bless his family and James rest in peace never to be forgotten.

Condolences to the family of James. I'm just one of the lucky human beings to have lived on earth at the same time and enjoy all the Longhorn splendor he could spread. It was wonderful.

I attended LHS, class of '65! I had geometry class with James, one of my least favorite subjects! Being shy, I didn't respond well to the teacher's "challenging" method of teaching. I had to put a problem on the board one day and explain it; when the teacher began to challenge every step in the problem, I simply froze. James came to my defense and rescued me. He will always be my hero! So sorry for your loss. May you feel God's loving embrace through your sorrow.
