Which Sooner owns a dachshund named Wubbie? And can you guess which freshman put too much detergent in the washing machine during her first attempt at on-campus laundry? Check back every Monday for a new segment. It all leads up to the start of the Sooners' run at another Big 12 Championship this February.


Amber Flores | Senior| Calexico, Calif.
  1. I have a Dachshund dog named Wubbie. I love him to death!
  2. I love major league baseball. My favorite team is the Dodgers.
  3. I never drink milk.
  4. I can’t cook. Some people just say they can’t cook and it’s not true, but I really can’t cook. I burnt myself pretty good once and haven’t really tried since.
  5. I love playing ping pong.
  6. I tried to be a vegetarian once. It didn’t work out so well.
  7. Family is the most important thing in my life. I’m very close to my family and they mean the world to me. 
  8. I love reality television.
  9. I grew up in Calexico, California. I lived about 10 blocks from the Mexican border.
  10. If I could play any other sport, it would be golf. I like golf a lot but I’m pretty bad.
  11. My dream job is to be NASCAR car driver because I love going fast.
  12. I’m not the outdoors type of person. I’d rather just stay inside and relax. My idea of having fun is not camping or fishing!
  13. I’m a Daddy’s girl!! My dad and I are real close. We talk everyday.
  14. I’m terrified of heights.
  15. I’ve always worn number 4 on my jersey because it represents each person in my family!
  16. I love sushi.
  17. I love country music. All my friends back home give me a hard time about it. Country is definitely not what people listen to in Calexico.
  18. My mom is the most energetic, fun-loving person you'll ever meet!
  19. My brother and I have always lived together! He came out to Oklahoma with me and just graduated from OU recently. I’m really proud of him!
  20. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to play softball at Oklahoma. I’m living my dream. Anything is possible. BOOMER SOONER!!
