Early years[edit]

At Texas, Sims spent his freshman year learning the basics of the tackle position. He spent his sophomore year behind Steve McMichael and Bill Acker, then became a force his junior year. He made 131 tackles, and was named an All-American. As a senior in 1981, Sims became the first Longhorn to win the Lombardi Trophy, was named the 1981 UPI Lineman of the Year and earned All-America status once again.
