Steve Worster gained 5,422 rushing yards during his spectacular high school career at Bridge City (1964-1966). His senior season he rushed for 2,210 yards while carrying the Cardinals to the Class 3A state title. He was at his best in the 1966 state final, racking up 249 yards (a title-game record at the time) as Bridge City romped over unbeaten McKinney, 30-6. Worster, a bruising fullback, soon became the focal point of Darrell Royal's wishbone offense and earned All-America honors in 1969 & 1970. Worster saved some of his best running for the Cotton Bowl where he led the Longhorns to a 2-1 record. In the 1970 Cotton Bowl vs. Notre Dame Worster rushed for 155 yards helping Texas to a 21-17 victory. The "Big Woo" rushed for 2,353 yards and 36 career touchdowns as Texas won 30 consecutive games and a pair of national titles between 1968 and 1970. Worster was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.
