Brennan Clay’s seven-minute celebration
For Monday’s paper, I wrote about Brennan Clay’s seven minutes of celebration around Owen Field after he scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime of this year’s Bedlam game.
Here’s a little of what I wrote:
Before 2012, Clay was a backup, and not a productive one. He watched as a walk-on and then a freshman steal the spotlight after a neck-injury hampered him.
A month ago, he sat in frustration at the end of the Notre Dame game, blaming himself and his two dropped passes for the loss.
Since his breakthrough performance at Iowa State, he’s become a fixture on Oklahoma’s offense. Saturday night, he carved out his place in the program’s history.
This was Bedlam 2012 — a 51-48 Oklahoma victory — and the gathering at the back of the south end zone was just the start of Clay’s nearly seven-minute journey of jubilation around Owen Field.
It’s a journey he’d never made.
Below is a video I took from my iPhone as I followed Clay around the field. I shortened it and it’s a bit shaky but I had to share this with you.
