    A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed the game day experience: Orb Whaley, 87, of Tulsa played football at Antlers High School and Southeastern State. Before a long management career with Western Auto, Whaley was involved in one of the most unusual plays in college football. While returning a second-half kick, Whaley was tackled by East Central lineman Doc Garner at the 50-yard line. Problem was, Garner made the stop after charging in from the ECU bench. East Central was given a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Whaley added an interception later in the third quarter that set up a Southeastern touchdown as the then-Savages rolled to a 26-2 victory. Whaley sandwiched his football career between stints in

    A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed the game day experience: Dave Bakenhaster, 69, of Galena, Ohio, played parts of the 1967 and 1970 baseball seasons with the Tulsa Oilers.
