One of the top offensive lineman on Texas’ 1969 National Championship team will join the College Football Hall of Fame.
Bob McKay, who played at Texas from 1968-1969, is apart of the 2017 College Football Hall of Fame Class along with Texas A&M great Dat Nguyen, coach and Heisman winner Steve Spurrier and quarterback Peyton Manning.
McKay was a first team All-American in 1969 and helped the Longhorns go 20-1-1 during his time in Austin.
Here’s a segment about McKay from the National Football Foundation’s release of the honorees:
“A stalwart on the offensive line of one of the best teams in Texas history, Bob McKay led the Longhorns to a national championship in 1969. He becomes the 18th player in school annals to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.”
McKay and the rest of the inductees will join the hall on Dec. 5, 2017.
