Longhorns senior running back Johnathan Gray may not be leaving his mark on Texas' record books to the degree many expected

But there is no denying his impact on the Longhorns from a leadership standpoint.

Here's what Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong had to say about Johnathan Gray on Monday:

"It'll be tough if J-Gray doesn't play, because you look at him, and he's just been a total leader, and everything you ask him to do, he's done. He hasn't had the year that he wanted to have, but still, though, he's one of those guys, he's the first one in. He's always working with the young guys, always talking to them. But he is such a special player, not only -- just a special person, and like you said, he's done a great job just being with the coaches, and he's a guy that's very accountable. He's a guy that's very responsible, and when you talk about just a guy with character, that's what you get with J-Gray. He has all the tools that you look for in a young man."
