WOODS WINS KALSU AWARD
Deep snapper Austin Woods was one of several Oklahoma players honored at the team's annual dinner and awards ceremony Friday.
Woods was named the winner of the Bob Kalsu Award as the player “who personifies Kalsu's spirit of leadership, serving as a motivator and role model for his teammates.”
Woods was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in summer 2012, underwent chemotherapy through September while still attending team workouts. His cancer was officially declared in remission Nov. 1, 2012, and he remains cancer free.
Kalsu was an All-American offensive tackle for the Sooners in 1967. He was killed in the Vietnam War in 1970.
Walk-on David Driskill was awarded the Derrick Shepard Most Inspiration Walk-On Player of the Year Award; Michael Hunnicutt and Jalen Saunders won Special Teams Player of the Year honors; and Gabe Ikard and Trey Millard were honored for winning the Don Key Award.
Driskill, Daniel Brooks, JP Hughes and Ruben Hunter were named Scout Team Players of the Year.
