I was going to say Career backup Luke McCown but alas he no longer plays. His brother Josh still does though ( and Josh is older!).

I think Phil Dawson is still playing in the NFL.  He was our place kicker from the mid 90s, most notably he scored the game-winning field goal against UVA in Austin in 1995.  They were actually a ranked and respected team back then, with Ronde andTiki Barber among others.

Impressive.  We are both '75'rs.  

Shane Lechler, the most potent weapon in the aggies offense [wink] in the late 90's, was still playing up until last year.  He was our punter in case you forgot.

Darren Sproles.  Wasn't he the guy that ruined OU's perfect season in 2003?  The so called Best Team Ever?

Couldn't be.  2005/6 USC was the "Best Team Ever."  ESPN ran a full-month series on how that Trojan team would stack up against the best teams of all time, and USC was viewed favorably in all matchups.  Pretty sure they even stated USC would have beaten Russia at Stalingrad.

I am continuously in awe of Justin Tucker, the hero kicker who gave A&M their last loss to the longhorns. 

I mean, I know kickers can last longer than players at other positions, but the fact that he is still killing it and nearly always the most accurate kicker every season is unreal!

Hunter Lawrence is the Horn kicker I'd like to forget.

Hopefully he's not still hanging around the NFL

What about that hero ref?  Is he still playing as well?

Hes now in charge of player relations.

Who was the hero ref?

The guy who put 1 second back on the clock against Nebraska?*

Since Gigem mentioned him, I suspect that's not the guy.  Was there by some chance a bit of official malfeasance in a UT-A&M game?  Hard to imagine that it could be so.

*Before any panties get twisted into a wad, I agree that there was probably a fraction of a second still on the clock when Colt McCoy's pass went out of bounds.  But if zebras were normally that careful about that last possible tenth of a second, there wouldn't have been nearly as much heartburn about it.  Nobody should complain about correct calls, but nearly everybody's got a favorite incorrect call they wish had been overruled with as much scrupulousness as that one was.
