Organizational values and women's sport at the University of Texas, 1918-1992
This study chronicles the organizational evolution of women's competitive sport at The University of Texas at Austin from 1918 to 1992. This history is examined from a theoretical framework focused on the organizational values of key female administrators and explores the basis and development of those values. Two factors are revealed to have had high influence on the organizational values of these leaders: their level of involvement in and commitment to national governing bodies of women's sport, and national ideologies about sports for women. In addition, this study explores how the gendered power struggles for control of women's college sport played out at one nationally prominent university and provides fresh insights into the extent and manner in which female administrators were able to maintain control of women's sport and shape it in line with their ideals, even after they lost the national battle for control in the early 1980s. This history fills an important gap in women's collegiate sport history as it reveals that UT has consistently been at the forefront of providing athletic opportunities to women throughout the twentieth century, first under the leadership of Anna Hiss and then Donna Lopiano.

Jenna Hays McEachern grew up in the world of football. She is the daughter of a successful Texas high school football coach, and both of her brothers played on his teams while she cheered from the sidelines. She’s been a Longhorn fan since she was nine years old and made her first pilgrimage to Austin.
Jenna studied photojournalism at The University of Texas, and also majored in being a UT cheerleader. She worked for Jones Ramsey and Bill Little as editor and go-fer in the Sports Information Department, and later edited “One Heartbeat – A Philosophy of Teamwork, Life and Leadership” and for “One Heartbeat II – The Road to the National Championship”, both written by Mack Brown and Bill Little.
Little and McEachern collaborated on “What It Means to be a Longhorn”, a collection of oral histories of some of Texas’ greatest players. Her second effort, “100 Things Longhorns Should Know and Do Before They Die” was published by Triumph Books in 2008. “DKR: The Royal Scrapbook”, by McEachern and Edith Royal, was published by University of Texas Press in August 2012.
McEachern was named one of 125 "Extraordinary Exes" during the Ex-Students' Association's 125th Anniversary. She is married to former Longhorn quarterback Randy McEachern. They still live in Austin, where they reared three near-flawless children – Bailey, Hays, and Lester Simmons.
DKR: The Royal Scrapbook
by Jenna McEachern with Edith Royal
University of Texas Press
Decades after his last game in 1976, Darrell K Royal remains “The Coach,” the winningest football coach in University of Texas history. Royal is still revered as “a coach who would rather lose a game than engage in unsportsmanlike tactics; who would neither make excuses for losing nor brag about winning..." in the words of the City of Austin’s “Darrell Royal Day” proclamation. DKR offers an intimate, insider’s view of the private life of the man behind the legend through an extraordinary collection of never-before-published photographs, letters, newspaper clippings, football ephemera, recollections, and “Royalisms” lovingly preserved by Edith, Royal’s wife of more than sixty-five years.
100 Things Longhorn Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die
by Jenna Hays McEachern
Triumph Books -- July 1, 2008
The University of Texas was legislated to be great. The 1876 Constitution of the State of Texas directed the legislature to establish a "University of the first class…styled 'The University of Texas'."
That same legislature made the Agricultural and Mechanical college [Texas A&M] a branch of The University (then called the "Main University").
Those are only two of the 100 Things a true Longhorn fan must commit to memory. From the history of The University to the details of our four national championships, "100 Things" is the ultimate bucket list of what’s important about the Horns.
"Without question, "100 THINGS" is THE definitive guide to acquiring the TRUE HEART, SOUL, and MIND of a great LONGHORNS FAN."
What It Means To Be A Longhorn
Edited by Bill Little and Jenna McEachern
Triumph Books, August 1, 2007
Forewords by Darrell K Royal and Mack Brown set the tone for this unprecedented collection of stories, thoughts, and memories of some of Texas' best football players.
There is a common thread that runs through all of the stories. In choosing Texas, each of these "boys" had the courage to challenge himself to compete with the best and against the best. To a man, they were challenged and changed forever by this tradition, this place, this "University of the first class."
From Howard Terry, who played in the 30s, to Earl Campbell, UT’s first Heisman Trophy winner, to Vince Young, commander of the 2005 National Championship team, these men tell compelling stories of the spirit of Texas, the expectations of excellence, the pride of having worn the burnt orange and white.
"Sit back and prepare to see how over the years, The University of Texas has impacted lives. While the crux of this is supposed to be just about football players, you quickly realize that this book transcends football and really touches how U.T. Austin impacts lives." - Jason Bronstad, Amazon.com Customer Reviews
