Date of Birth



Wharton, TX


University of Texas (1930-1932)


Harrison Stafford and Ernie Koy provided Texas football with one of the nation's best backfield duos during the early 1930s. Stafford laid enemy defenders low with crushing blocks, leading the way for Koy to gobble up yardage and points. The two became the most feared tandem in the Southwest, instant stars from the very first time they donned Longhorn varsity uniforms in their sophomore seasons. That was 1930, a year when Texas finished 8-1-1 to claim the Southwest Conference championship. Stafford played an important role in the clinching of the title. In the next-to-last game of the season, Texas and Texas Christian were locked in a defensive battle until Harrison scored the only touchdown of the day and provided the Longhorns with a 7-0 victory. In 1969, he was named to the Southwest Conference 50-year team, covering the years 1919-1968. In 1932, he was named to the Associated Press All-America Team and was named Most Valuable Player in the Southwest Conference in a poll of sports writers by the Houston Post. After college, he was a successful rancher in Texas.
