Robert D. Jacobus, UH alum and author of “Houston Cougars in the 1960s: Death Threats, the Veer Offense, and the Game of the Century,” has a new book out. It is titled, “Black Man in the Huddle: Stories from the Integration of Texas Football.” It’s a mostly oral history about the pioneers who integrated high school and college football in Texas. For UH fans, there are stories in the book about Coach Yeoman integrating UH with Warren McVea, Coach Yeoman talking about his time at Michigan State before he came to UH, and also an interview with DC Nobles, the first black quarterback in Cougar history.
Jacobus will be having 2 book signings in November in the Houston area. One is at the Barnes and Noble in Sugar Land on Sunday, November 17th, from 2-4 pm. The other one is at the River Oaks Bookstore on Saturday, November 30th, from 3-5 pm.
