Kenny Stills was reeled in a lot of big-time catches during his three years

We’re four days away from the opener against Houston, so today is Kenny Stills Day! And guess what... it’s also Jamelle Holieway Day!

Stills came to Oklahoma in the 2010 class along with fellow Californians Tony Jefferson and Brennan Clay. He brought a brand of swagger that was not received well by some people (old people) in the Sooner State, but he was an immediate contributor at the wide receiver position.

Kenny ended his OU career with 204 receptions in three seasons, which ranks fourth in OU history. I still can’t get over this piece of crap that Jenni Carlson wrote about the California players. Seriously, Jenni?

Anyway, Jamelle Holieway is our other player to highlight today. In 1985, Holieway came in after crybaby Troy Aikman broke his leg, and he he ended up leading the Sooners to their sixth national championship. He’s considered to be one of the best quarterbacks to ever run the wishbone (if not THE best). Unfortunately, an ACL injury during his junior season pretty much derailed his college career, but he was still able to leave his mark at OU.
