Bill DeOre “Beyond the Big Shootout” 

Bill DeOre ’65 Beyond the Big Shootout, September 12 – December 20, 2019.

Bill DeOre shared the Dallas Morning newsroom with author Mark McDonald, while both also served as volunteer coaches in youth sports. It follows then, that the “seasoned” duo would once again connect on a project related to … what else … sports history.

Mark McDonald’s book Beyond The Big Shootout, takes a trip through that 1969 epic of a football game between the University of Arkansas and Texas, which was a heartbreaking 15-14 loss on national TV that was attended by President Richard Nixon and covered by newspapers from coast to coast. The exhibition will include Bill’s illustrations from the book, as well as other works from the Jesuit Dallas Museum collection. Bill DeOre and Mark McDonald will be in attendance for the book signing at the opening on September 12, 2019.
