An Austin Aquatic Club visit to a Corpus Christi beach is captured in this 1966 home movie footage. The Austin Aquatic Club, now known as Longhorn Aquatics, was coached and directed by former All-American Longhorn water polo swimmer, Wally Pryor from 1953 to 1975. This mob of candid youths mug for the camera and take turns burying each other in the sand. The crazy day ends with the group gathering around to enjoy some hamburgers on the grill.
Known to many as the “Voice of the Longhorns,” Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard “Cactus” Pryor. The films in the Wally Pryor collection represent a range of films from home movies, to various pieces he produced, films featuring himself, and several films featuring Cactus Pryor.
