Lewis "Bud" McFadin of Iraan was a two-way lineman at the University of Texas. He earned All-American and All-Southwest Conference honors in 1949 and 1950. McFadin was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams, but because of an Air Force commitment, was unable to play until the final two games of 1952. He became a standout defensive tackle and played with the Rams for four additional years (1952-1956) with one Pro Bowl appearance. In 1956, a hunting accident nearly ended his career, but he came out of retirement in 1960 to join Denver in the AFL. As a player for Denver (1960-1963), he was All-AFL three times and played in three All-Star games. After four years with the Broncos, he moved to Houston (1964-1965) and played for two more years before serving five seasons as an Oilers assistant. McFadin was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1983.
