Mystery Video: August 2013

August begins the season for Texas’ official team sport, football!  Help us identify members of the 1969 University of Texas football team in this month’s Mystery Video.  A film from the Gordon Wilkison Collection, Interviews With 1969 Longhorn Players And Coaches, is a collection of interviews by Texas broadcasting legend Cactus Pryor featuring assorted Longhorn football players, coaches, team personnel and extended family members. The footage was filmed around the "Game of the Century"-- Texas' December 6, 1969 defeat of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Help us identify the players, coaches and other individuals by commenting on the video page or by using our TAMI Tagging system to give us a precise time code for your information. If you recognize a person, place, thing or event in the video, click on TAMI Tagging and a box will appear for you to enter your descriptive information.  Use the Mark Video Segment feature below the video player to add a Begin and End mark to the segment you wish to tag.  Finish by clicking the Tag button.  Since tags and comments are moderated, they will not appear immediately, but information will be updated as soon as possible after receiving your input.  

Not a football fan?  Take a look back at last month’s Mystery Video, The Ross S. Sterling Collection, no. 11 - Prominent Texans at Morgan’s Point.   We still need your help to identify the large group of men posing for a photograph at the Governor Ross S. Sterling Mansion in Morgan’s Point in the 1920s.  

Tell us what you see, and check back next month as we continue the mystery video series!  Remember, you can always help us to indentify details by tagging or commenting on any video page. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
