Freddie Steinmark is a University of Texas Longhorn hero. In the thrilling Game of the Century, a come-from-behind victory against Arkansas that ensured Texas the national championship in 1969, Steinmark played with pain in his left leg. Two days later, X-rays revealed a bone tumor so large that it seemed a miracle Steinmark could walk, let alone play football. Within a week of the Arkansas game, his leg was amputated. Join us tonight as authors Bower Yousse and Thomas J. Cryan remember the legendary player who confronted life's ultimate challenge and helped reframe the national conversation surrounding cancer and the ongoing race for a cure.
