Former Teammates Remember Steve Davis
“He only lost a couple games, lost one and tied one during his entire career. That’s a legend.”
The sooner community loses a football great. “Theres no words to describe. It’s just a down feeling when you lose a friend like that,” said Scott Hill, former teammate and friend of Steve Davis.
Hill played alongside OU legendary quarterback Steve Davis.
“He earned the respect of the football team through his heart, through his leadership, through the way he lived.”
Davis led the Sooners to two national championship titles in 1974 and 1975.
“He commanded ya know the offense. He took charge of the team; our offense obviously did a great job for us,” said Tinker Owens.
Owens was a Sooner receiver during the Davis era.
“I always teased Steve like ya know could you get the ball thrown where it’s easier to catch. Where you don’t have to dive and catch it. He'd just sit there and laugh and giggle at me every time I said it you know.”
“To become the winningest OU quarterback in history and fulfill though dreams ya know what’s not to like,” said Hill.
From the first time he hit the field. Davis lived for the crimson and creme.
“It's pretty obvious from the letter he wrote Landry Jones after he got booed this last year telling him about his experience,” said Hill.
More than what he was on the field those who knew him say Davis will be remembered for what he was off the field.
“He was just a wonderful guy, ya know a class act. Anything you said about Steve is good. It’s Steve Davis. I mean that was just the kind of guy he was,” said Owens.
Making him a player sooner fans will never forget
“He’s really going to be sorely missed to say the least,” said Owens.
“Steve was just that kind of guy. He made that much difference in people's lives,” said Scott.
