OSU football: Jim Click honored
Jim Click, the former OSU center who I wrote about for my Wednesday column, (http://newsok.com/how-jim-click-brought-oklahoma-state-arizona-together/article/3581162?custom_click=lead_story_title ) is in the OSU Hall of Fame. Not the athletic hall of fame. The university hall of fame.
Click was OSU’s tri-captain in 1965, then entered the car business and since 1971 has been an auto dealer in Tucson, Ariz., where he’s a civic icon.
There’s a display of Click in the Cowboy football complex. This is the text:
“Jim Click, Jr. was born April 28, 1944, in Altus, Okla. In 1962, he was voted to the Oklahoma all-state football team for his play at Altus High School. During his days at Oklahoma State University, Jim was voted a Scholastic All-American, received the Big 8 Medallion Award and was captain of OSU’s football team.
“‘During my freshman year at OSU in 1963, I wanted to quit and I didn’t. As it turns out, because I didn’t quit, I received four of the greatest years in my life by being at OSU and being able to participate on the OSU football team,’ Click said. ‘I made some of the best friendships, including Walt Garrison and Hugh McCrabb, and I also received a good education…which is priceless.
“After graduating from OSU in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science in business, Jim ventured into the automobile business by selling automobiles for his great uncle, Holmes Tuttle, at a Ford dealership in Los Angeles.
