Freddie's recruitment would pay off as the Longhorns brought the wishbone to college football and began a 30-game winning streak, winning two national titles in the process. Steinmark was one of the key cogs on defense.

But the joy was short-lived, as Steinmark was diagnosed with bone cancer just after the “Game Of The Century” between Texas and Arkansas in 1969. Steinmark died 1971.
“My All American” was written by Angelo Pizzo, the same screenwriter who penned “Rudy” and “Hoosiers.” The film is adapted from the new book “Courage Beyond The Game” by Texas writer Jim Dent, who’s best known for his books “The Junction Boys” and “Twelve Mighty Orphans.”
Pizzo spoke with TexasFootball.com in Dallas, explaining his motivation for the film.
