AUSTIN, Texas — Duke Carlisle never lost a game as starting quarterback at the University of Texas. That included winning the 1963 National Championship with a Cotton Bowl victory over Roger Staubach and the Navy.
"I see him every now and then," said Carlisle. "He's a good guy and we talk about those days."
Carlisle has great memories of his days playing under coach Darrell Royal at Texas and has written a book. "Longhorns and Tall Tales" is something he's very proud of.
"It was a lot of serious business going on back then, but there was also chuckles," said Carlisle. "I decided to attack it from that side and talk about some of the more humorous times that we had."
The Athens, Texas, native has lived in Mississippi for most of his adult life, but he still returns to the Austin area every so often to see family and remember the old days.
"It was a good experience," he said. "A lot of good guys."
And great memories for an undefeated quarterback.
