Larry Stegent (born December 1, 1947) was a National Football League running back for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1971. He lettered in four sports, including football, at St. Thomas High School in Houston, Texas from which he graduated in 1966, and to whose Sports Hall of Fame he was named in 2003.[1] Although highly touted during his collegiate career at Texas A&M, where he was a three-time all-Southwest Conference tailback [2] who played on A&M's 1968 Cotton Bowl championship team with future New Orleans Saints quarterback Edd Hargett, [3] he proved to be a disappointment in the NFL (owing in part to a knee injury in his first and only preseason game) as he only played in seven games, recording just one reception for 12 yards.[4]

Larry now lives with his wife, the former Miss Petunia Holt, in Smyrna, Georgia. He is a dog breeder specializing in exotic breeds. Breeding Shih Tzu's and American Pit Bull Terriers is his current enterprise.
