E.J. Holub, a college football Hall of Famer who excelled on both sides of the ball at Texas Tech, has died at age 81.
"There are few players throughout history with the talent of an E.J. Holub," Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt said in a statement. "He was the first College Football Hall of Famer in our history and will forever be remembered for his ability to impact the game on both sides of the ball. Most importantly, he was a dedicated Red Raider throughout his life. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.
