All-American: J.W. "Dub" Wheeler

Rufus Alexander

J.W. "Dub" Wheeler, T - 1935
J.W. "Dub" Wheeler was named an All-American during the 1935 season. The 227-pound tackle was a powerful member of the OU line which helped the Sooners lead the conference in rushing in 1935 and dominated opponents’ rushing attacks.

The two-time all-conference selection was instrumental in holding Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State all under 70 yards rushing during the 1935 season.

He was the first player from Oklahoma to be drafted in the NFL. He went to the Green Bay Packers during the second round.
