The University of Oklahoma and Coach Stoops have just announced that LB Tom Wort will be the first to wear #12 in honor of Austin Box.  As many saw during the OU All-Access show, Wort was one of the many teammates greatly affected by the loss of Box and I'm quite sure is truly honored to be the first to have the honor.  Sooner Nation knows you will represent it well Tom and be the first of many to pay a fitting tribute to both Austin and his family.

Oh, and Mr. Wort just became my lock for defensive player of the game.  Not that he wouldn't have already, but getting to wear #12 I'd be he is a man possessed tomorrow night.  Boomer Sooner!
