    UPDATE: It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that Ken passed away at 12:35. Send prayers for his family in their time of need.



    I'm not sure how many people know Hornya beyond the board, but he suffered a massive stroke on Saturday night. I don't have many details, but was told that the outcome does not look favorable. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

    Don't know Hornya beyond the board but certainly do enjoy his posts. Will pray for a full recovery and for strength for his family during this terribly difficult time.

    Oh no, not good. How old is Hornya? I know he's one of our senior members. Is he the one with a very long consecutive games attended streak?

    Prayers sent -


    Before college football went to "Summer Workouts" with all the players staying in Austin for the summer Ken was instrumental in getting the Houston area kids summer jobs, and not the Big Red Motors kind either.


    He is also a past presidnet of the Houston Longhorn Club.


    The man is a good Longhorn and supporter of The University!

    I didn't know who he was until this post and now I know exactly who he is. I can't say I know him well but every time I saw him he knew me from the Longhorn Club and would say hello and talk for a couple of minutes like we were long lost friends.


    Sending positive thoughts and prayers his way.
