Since 1895, the University of Oklahoma football program has amassed some impressive numbers: seven national championships, 47 consecutive wins, 44 conference championships, 28 bowl wins, five Heisman Trophy winners, and more than 150 All-America players. In Legends of Oklahoma Sooners Football, Ray Dozier profiles 36 players and coaches who provided the talent and inspiration that put Sooner football on the national sports landscape. Many of those legends played before the dawn of the television era, but standouts such as Forest "Spot"Geyer, Tommy McDonald, Prentice Gautt (the first black football player at the University of Oklahoma), Clendon Thomas, and Bob Kalsu remain alive and well in the hearts and minds of loyal Sooner fans. The legends of Sooner stars such as Steve Owens, Joe Washington, Jack Mildren, the Selmon brothers, Billy Sims, Greg Pruitt, Tony Casillas, Brian Bosworth, Adrian Peterson, and Sam Bradford continue to grow with time. Coaching legends include Bennie Owen, Bud Wilkinson, Barry Switzer, and the all-time leader in wins, Bob Stoops. Legends of Oklahoma Sooners Football chronicles the players, coaches, rivalries, and events that transformed a club team that played its first games on a dusty territorial prairie into a national powerhouse.
