The Person Who Created The Famous Longhorn Sign Has Passed Away

Anyone know where that Hook 'em Horns sign came from?

A University of Texas cheerleader first flashed that famous Hook 'em Horns sign at a pep rally in 1955 before Texas played TCU, and it didn't take long before it became associated with UT at spots around the world.  It's gone hand-in-hand with Longhorn games for the past 59 years, and it's even been turned upside down by fans of a few rival schools.
