The Man Beneath The Helmet – Jalen Saunders
Every year we learn their names, their numbers and their stats. If we’re lucky, we see their personality shine through after a big play or during the slice of a quote in the newspaper. The men in the Oklahoma Sooners jerseys are more than a number in a program or another chance at a national title. They are student athletes with stories waiting to be told. We’d like to thank OU Athletics Communications staff for their assistance. The Oklahoman brings you “The Man Beneath The Helmet.”
NAME: Jalen Saunders
If I weren’t playing football, I’d be running track.
If I could trade positions for a day, I’d choose quarterback.
My favorite part of OU is Memorial Stadium.
Despite what you’ve heard, I’ve never been toOklahoma until I came here for school.
My favorite part of football is game day.
The weirdest question I’ve ever been asked is “Is your hair real?”.
I’m on Twitter once a week.
My favorite meal my momma makes is lasagna.
I chose OU for the tradition and because of Coach Stoops.
