Lucious Selmon, NG - 1973
Lucious Selmon received consensus All-America honors in 1973. The oldest brother of perhaps the most famous trio of brothers in OU history, Lucious and his younger brothers, Lee Roy and Dewey, were all outstanding athletes.

Lucious compiled a long list of accomplishments and accolades during his career at OU. He was named the Big Eight Athlete of the Year in 1973-74 and was named the Top Defensive Player in the conference in 1973.

He was named the Chevrolet Defensive Player of the Year in 1973 and finished second in the Outland Trophy balloting (Lineman of the Year). He was described by then head coach Barry Switzer as the best down lineman he had ever coached.

Selmon was drafted in the 16th round by the New England Patriots in 1974.
