Oklahoma football: Sooners' receiver Kenny Stills says he's OK with kids copying his hairdo

IRVING, Texas — Kenny Stills admits being a little upset when he first noticed kids around Oklahoma were styling their hair in his signature black-and-blonde mohawk.

These days, though, as Stills prepares to play in Friday's Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M — which might be his final game in a Sooner uniform; he's considering the 2013 NFL Draft — the junior is humbled by the imitation.

Stills, from California, talked this week about Sooners quarterback Landry Jones, being noticed around town and his unmistakable hair.

I feel like (Landry Jones has) been here a long time and he just wants to go out on a high note. We want to make sure we got out there and not put anything out there sloppy for people to see. We want to go out and execute and play well.

It was obviously a big part of me coming here, knowing that Landry was going to be here at least two years. I was thankful that Landry came back and played with us this year. We just want to send all our seniors out on the right note.

When I'm going around Norman, I usually try to wear a hood or a hat, just to kinda save from being stopped here and there, especially if you're just trying to go from practice to go home, just to catch some shut-eye. But ... people here are amazing, and they love their football team.
