TEXAS LONGHORNS RING OF HONOR

The Longhorns Ring of Honor is a way to acknowledge players who have made great contributions to the advancement of the Texas Longhorns Football team. These achievements are not restricted to on-field or statistical accomplishments. Honorees will be announced during the offseason.

Matt Wolfe - Kicker- Season 1
 
While Matt Wolfe played only 1 season for Texas, a season in which he did not exactly set the world on fire, he has gone on to great things in the EFL and is a prime example of a Longhorn. 
 
•1st ever Longhorn selected in the EFL draft
• 1st ever Longhorn selected in the 1st round (1.4)
• Season 3 EFL kicker of the year
• S3 EFL champion

Cameron Millwall - Running Back - Seasons 5-8
 
Unchallenged. Undisputed. Indefatigable. Cameron Millwall is one of the greatest running backs the EFL has ever seen. A starter from Day 1, Millwall was unstoppable as the backbone of the Texas attack for all four seasons of his college career. He was offensive MVP in Texas' S6 championship, rushing for over 200 yards and 3 touchdown in one of the all-time great football performances. 
 
•2nd all-time in NCAA Rushing Yards
• 3rd all-time in NCAA Rushing TDs
• S6 RBotY
S8 OPotY
• S6 NCAA Champion

Roll Fizzlebeef - Cornerback - Seasons 5-8
 
Possibly the greatest NCAA filler of all time, Fizzlebeef was a lockdown corner for the Longhorns for four seasons, racking up PDs and interceptions along the way. He also played a key role in the hiring of Athletic Director Dick Bote, which as of Season 10 appears to be a sound hire. He played a key role limiting big plays in the secondary, aiding Texas' ground-and-pound, grind-it-out style. 
 
• 3rd all-time in NCAA Interceptions (23)
• 2nd all-time in NCAA PDs (52)
• 3-time All-American
• S6 NCAA Champion

Demetrius Sharkstrong - Inside Linebacker - Seasons 6-9
 
For four seasons, Demetrius and his brother Reginald have epitomized what it means to be a Texas Longhorn. They showed loyalty to the organization during the tumultuous administrative turnover between , and have consistently been recognized as among the best at their respective positions. In his senior season, Demetrius was the leader of the #1 (by far) run defense in the league, and set the standard in terms of consistency and team-oriented play. The Ring of Honor isn't just about gaudy numbers, it's about players that define a football program. 
 
• 4 year starter and defensive captain
• 327 career tackles
• S8 League Leader in TFLs
• S6 NCAA Champion

T.J. Hendrix - Wide Receiver - Seasons 12-13
 
It takes a lot to make the Ring of Honour with only two seasons of college ball on the resume, but Hendrix burned as brightly as any player the Texas program has seen. He burst onto the scene in his rookie year, putting up nearly 1000 receiving yards and establishing himself as a #1 target as a true freshman. He declared for the draft in his sophomore year, and quickly silenced any doubters by putting up a season that earned him second place in balloting for Wide Receiver of the Year, broke a Texas school record, and capped off his abbreviated college career by putting up over 220 yards in the Longhorns championship run. A bright-burning flame indeed. 
 
• Season 12 Freshman of the Year
• Single-Season Receiving School Record (1438 yards)
• 85 yards-per-game average
• S13 NCAA Champion

Noah Jacobs - Free Safety - Seasons 11-14
 
Jacobs was a solid, if not, flashy, contributor for the Longhorns in his first three seasons with the team, before exploding in his senior season as the best defensive player in the country. He doubled his previous career INT total and led both his team and all defensive backs in the country in tackles, serving as both the first and last line of defense in a group that had plenty of solid players, but otherwise lacked star power. Jacobs was a main driver between Texas' dominant S14 defense, having massive game during several of the defense's shutout performances, and brought Texas their first ever DPoY and DBoY awards, as well as attracting votes for the Heisman. Jacobs has a solid case as the best defensive player in Longhorns history.
 
• Season 14 Defensive Player and Defensive Back of the Year
• Single-Season Interception School Record (12 INTs)
• 204 career tackles
• S13 NCAA Champion
