Darrell Royal, R.I.P.

The first video below is a nice tribute to Darrell Royal, the iconic University of Texas football coach who died earlier this week. Also, Mickey Herskowitz — Houston’s greatest sportswriter — provides this heartfelt remembrance, while Dave Kindred passes along something about Coach Royal that I didn’t know, which was that his favored way of dying was the same as my father’s (“Heart attack, coming off the 18th green, taking everybody‚Äôs damned money”). Finally, the second video below reprises Coach Royal’s most famous game. Enjoy these remembrances of a truly remarkable life.
