McCallister, who joined Houston out of Fort Stockton, Texas, lettered for the Cougars from 1978 to 1981 and competed in three straight NCAA Championships (1979-81), leading UH to top-10 team finishes each season.

Entering the 2016-17 season, McCallister continues to rank among the Cougar’s top-15 career leaders in strokes and rounds played. He posted a career-low 66 in the First Round of the Les Bolstad Invitational on March 25, 1980.
