BILL BLAKELEY -- The Mean Green’s head basketball coach from 1975-76 to 1982-83, Blakeley owns the second-most coaching victories in school history (134) and his career .612 winning percentage (134-85) is fourth-best in school history. He coached the Mean Green to three consecutive 20-win seasons, from 1975-76 to 1977-78. With victories over Arizona State, Kansas State, TCU, Baylor, SMU and Texas during his eight seasons at North Texas, Blakeley also led the Mean Green briefly into the Top 20 national rankings for the only time in school history.

BOBBY GREENWOOD -- Greenwood was a three-time letterwinner in golf at North Texas from 1961-63, helping lead the Eagles to three consecutive Missouri Valley Conference championships. As a senior, he led the Eagles to the NCAA championship tournament in 1963, when North Texas placed third. Greenwood received honorable mention All-America honors as a sophomore in 1961 and was a first-team All-American as a junior and senior.

BARRY MOORE -- An outstanding receiver for the Mean Green football team from 1968-69, Moore shares the school record for receiving yards in a season with 1,130 he amassed in 1969. That season he caught 71 passes and scored five touchdowns to earn his second straight All-Missouri Valley Conference honor. The 71 receptions rank third all-time at North Texas while his 2,183 career reception yards are No. 4 in school history. In 1968, Moore rolled up 228 yards in receptions in a game against UT-El Paso, a mark that ranks No. 2 in school history.

G.A. MOORE -- Moore was a member of the Eagle football team from 1957-60, but has since earned national recognition as one of the state of Texas’ most successful high school football coaches. He has coached at Bryson, Pilot Point, Celina and Sherman, won eight state championships and enters the 2002 season within reach of becoming the all-time winningest high school coach in Texas history. Moore, who earned his bachelor degree (1962) and Master’s (1967) from North Texas, was inducted into the Texas High School Coaches Hall of Honor in 1998.

DEE WALKER -- An outstanding defensive lineman for the North Texas football team from 1938-40, Walker was a member of back-to-back Lone Star Conference championship teams in 1939 and 1940.
