Transcript IMcCoy Missed Final Cut, |But leaves an outstanding record Not many athletes can say as a freshman they received the honor of Southwest Conference Newcomer of the Year, as a sophomore led their team in tackles, as a junior a Football News Defensive Player of the Year semifinalist, or as a senior |the SWC tackles leader. Houston's very own Ryan McCoy can reminisce about all of this and much more. During the 1992 season he was a Butkus Award candidate and again, this season, was nominated for this prestigious award. On August 25, the Downtown Club of Orlando notified UH that McCoy was on the initial "watch" list of candidates for the award. Other candidates for the award included: Trev Alberts, Nebraska; Aubrey Beavers, Oklahoma; Derrick Brooks, Florida State; Keith Burns, Oklahoma State; Mitch Davis, Georgia; DeWayne Dotson, Mississippi; Sean Harris, Arizona; Jamir Miller, UCLA; Jerrott Willard, California; and Ron Woolfork, Colorado. McCoy was also the only conference player to make the 11-man list and led all candidates in tackles. However, McCoy has gone further than being just another candidate. He eclipsed the century mark three times, averaging more than 100 tackles per season. While never missing a single collegiate game, McCoy has been the starting middle linebacker since his freshman year in 1990. McCoy started the 1993 campaign strong and has been going full force ever since. In Houston's season opener against Southern California he led the team in tackles. The following week against Tulsa he seized the SWC lead in tackles and never let it go. He has averaged more than 15 tackles per game. For the first four games of the season he led both Houston and the team's opponent in tackles. Baylor proved to be McCoy's strongest game of the season. The Cougars held the Bears to a mere three points, and McCoy walked away with 21 tackles. At the end of each game McCoy inched closer and closer towards breaking former linebacker Gary McGuire's record of 472 tackles. "When it happens, it's gonna happen. I'm not going to be out on the field keeping stats," McCoy said. Finally, after a season of anticipation he did it. During the second quarter of the Cincinnati game McCoy sacked David Small for the 473rd tackle of his dazzling football career. "It's no big deal. I didn't really even know (that the record was broken on that play) until I stepped out of the game and somebody told me." He finished the game with 18 tackles, 13 were unassisted, and his career total was upped to 483. McCoy finished his college career with an astounding 504 tackles. He hopes the record will stand. "When I'm an old man, it'll be something to tell my grandkids about." Despite the spectacular season, McCoy didn't make the final cut for the Butkus Award, but he is definitely the most prolific tackier in UH history.- Michelle Morgan 284 6S) Welcome to Houston, buddy!

The TCU game at Fort Worth was the Cougars first game of the season in cold weather, and they were not able to pull it together. The Coogs went down with a 28-10 loss. Photo by Michael Smith I hope I don't fumble this one. The Homecoming game got off to a slow start and many were doubting the Cougars could do it, but in the last quarter they caught up with SMU at 28 all. Unfortunately, one last Cougar field goal went sailing to the right just before time ran out. Photo by Michael Smith Simply unbeatable! The Cougars's were flying high as Ron Peters caught one of the many touchdown passes during the 24-3 romp over Baylor. many Photo by Michael Smith \ 1993-1994 Coog Competitors Players: (In Numerical Order) Donald Doulgas, Daniel Adams, Gerome Williams, Lawerence McPherson, Thomas McGaughey, Preston Bailey, Clay Helton, Jason Stoft, Chandler Evans, Ron Peters, Chuck Clements, Thery George, D.
