The prowess of the University of Texas' football team is displayed in these clips that highlight their tackling skills. The film features the tackles of Brad Shearer, who played for the University of Texas Longhorns from 1974-1977. As senior team captain in 1977, he averaged ten tackles per game and was awarded the Outland Trophy for being the best interior lineman of the season.
Known to many as the "Voice of the Longhorns," Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard "Cactus" Pryor. The films in the Wally Pryor collection represent a range of films from home movies, to various pieces he produced, films featuring himself, and several films featuring Cactus Pryor.
