George Howard “Hook” McCullough (1920-21) was a native of Fayette, Missouri, and he attended Independence High School in Independence, Missouri and the Kemper Military School in Boonville, Missouri for his preparatory education. He briefly attended the University of Missouri and then served in the Army during World War I before enrolling at Texas in 1919. He starred at left end on the UT football team for two years and also won two letters in basketball, and was the basketball team captain in 1922. During his lifetime McCullough was regarded as one of the best receivers in the history of the Longhorn football program, and after his death from pneumonia in 1935 the Austin Statesman wrote, “he has been considered the paragon of all southwestern ends, of all time.” He was one of the earliest inductees into the UT Athletics Hall of Honor, joining in 1959 in that hall’s third class.
