Happy Saturday, Sooner Nation! The Oklahoma Sooners are now 28 days, or four Saturdays, away from kicking off the 2017 season and as a tribute, we thought we’d give a shout to a couple of former Sooner stars who wore No. 28, led by perhaps the most gifted athlete to ever play at Oklahoma.
Adrian Peterson needs no introductions nor summaries of his Oklahoma career. All Day was a singular talent the likes of which college football fans hadn’t seen since the days of Bo Jackson or Herschel Walker — possibly ever. Considered by most fans as the greatest player in the Bob Stoops era, the chosen one from Palestine could also be argued as the best offensive talent to ever play at Oklahoma.
Whether you agree or not, there’s no debating how lucky we were to see him for (the better part of) three years in Norman. Here’s a look back at some of the AD’s finest moments in the Crimson & Cream.
The 2012 NFL MVP has enjoyed an outstanding pro career, as well.
And finally, another Sooner great to wear No. 28 was also one of college football’s finest return specialists of all time — the dynamic field-scorcher, Antonio Perkins. The Lawton product was a fan favorite for his abilities in the return game along with his playmaking skills in the secondary. His historic performance at Owen Field against UCLA in 2003 was one for the ages.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, fellow Sooners!
