David King wins Don Key Award
Before Saturday’s Bedlam game, Sooners senior defensive lineman David King was presented with the Don Key Award.
The award is presented to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of Key on the field and in the classroom.
Key was a three-year starter for the Sooners until cancer surgery ended his football career in 1981.
The award was established the next year.
King has started every game this season after being a part time starter in each of the two previous years.
King is the first solo award winner since 2009 when Brody Eldridge was given the award.
In 2010, Jeremy Beal and Adrian Taylor split the award. Last year, Ryan Broyles, James Hann, Travis Lewis and Corey Wilson were given the award.
