#1 Terrance Bullitt, linebacker

Hometown: Garland, Texas

Degree: University Studies

Best memory: Bullitt will always be best known for his toughness. Despite playing most of his Red Raider career with various injuries, he’s amassed 125 tackles, six sacks, 17 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and 16 pass breakups.

#54 Dartwan Bush, defensive end

Hometown: Clute, Texas

Degree: Undeclared

Best memory: Bush’s sack against Collin Klein and Kansas State in 2012 was the first and last great play by the defense that day. Klein was about to get the pass off, but Bush, coming off the edge to Klein’s blind side, got his big paw on the ball and dragged him down by his arm.

#8 Sadale Foster, running back/receiver

Hometown: Riverside, Cali.

Degree: Undeclared

Best memory:

#91 Kerry Hyder, defensive lineman

Hometown: Austin, Texas

Degree: Psychology

Best memory: Watch Jones force the fumble at the 00:20 mark.

#5 Tre’ Porter, defensive back

Hometown: Midwest City, Okla.

Degree: Pre-Physical Therapy

Best memory: Game against Minnesota in the balance, Porter makes a fantastic play on the ball to tip it to D.J. Johnson.

#7 Will Smith, linebacker

Hometown: Riverside, Cali.

Degree: University Studies

Best memory: See the Bruce Jones video for Smith’s scoop-and-score fumble recovery against Texas State.

#18 Eric Ward, wide receiver

Hometown: Wichita Falls, Texas

Degree: Human Development & Family Studies

Best memory: This is the circus catch that introduced us to Eric Ward’s circus-catch ability.

Every single one of these guys will be missed for what they did on and off the field. Here’s to you, Red Raider seniors.

Thanks for the memories.
