AUSTIN (KXAN) - James Street, the only unbeaten quarterback for the University of Texas Longhorns, died Monday.
"We are sad to lose a Longhorn legend," UT Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds said in a statement. "James Street was a great college football player and an even better man. I am proud to have called him my friend. He started what became a great Street family legacy at Texas. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Janie and the boys."
After the news broke, Longhorns Coach Mack Brown said on his Twitter page: "Very sad day as we lost college FB great, good friend & wonderful man (with the) passing of James Street," UT Coach Mack Brown said on his Twitter page around 8:30 a.m.
Street, 65, played for the Longhorns from 1966 to 1969 and is credited with engineering the team's wishbone offense in 1968.
Street, the father of major league pitcher Huston Street, played under legendary Coach Darrell Royal and was part of the 1969 national champion team. That team went on to defeat Notre Dame in the 1970 Cotton Bowl.
Street also played baseball for the Longhorns.
At the time of his death, Street was heading the James Street Group, a financial-planning organization.
Street is survived by his wife and five sons: Ryan, Huston, Juston, Jordon and Hanson.
Members of the Longhorns football team will wear a "JS" sticker on the back of their helmets to honor Street during Thursday's game at Iowa State.
