Our current 85:

Christian Williams - I thought he was a senior last year, but I guess he got a redshirt?

 

A few memorable 85s:

Not the most fondly remembered season in TCU history, but the 1985 cover of Dave Campbell's Texas Football was pretty great

 

...and a few bonus 85s:

Bonus:

Army's Andy Davidson scores from 3 yards out to cap off a 19-play, 85 yard drive that took 10:47 off the clock to tie OU at 21-21 late in the third quarter.  Army was the only team to shut out OU's offense for an entire half in 2018, and the only team other than Alabama to hold OU scoreless in a quarter, which Alabama did once in the CFP.

Always wondered why JK didn’t wear 85 in the pros ever.

Our current 84 is Dominic Dnunzio, a walk-on TE from Cleveland.  I can't find a photo of him.

 

A few memorable 84s:

Cody McCarty - taken from us way too soon

Michael DePriest scored an 84-yard TD on a reception from Jeff Ballard against Iowa State in the Houston Bowl on New Year's Eve, 2005

 

...and a few bonus 84s:

April 26, 1984: Moody Madness.  The Mavs beat the Sonics in a decisive Game 5 of their first-round playoff series at Moody Coliseum.  An indoor tennis tournament had been book at Reunion Arena, forcing them to play at SMU.  The game was on pay-per-view!
