Rod Shoate wasn't the only 2013 College Football Hall of Fame inductee with Oklahoma ties. Former Baylor quarterback and Oklahoma City native Don Trull was also elected.


Trull, who played high school football at Southeast, passed for more than 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns throughout his college career, earning first-team All-America honors as a senior in 1963.

Trull led Baylor to wins in the 1961 Gotham Bowl and the 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl, then went on to an eight-year professional football career. Today, he serves as president-elect for the NFF Touchdown Club of Houston.

Trull becomes the seventh Baylor player to enter the College Football Hall of Fame.
