All-American: Dan Cody

Rufus Alexander

Dan Cody, DE - 2004
Dan Cody earned All-America honors as a senior defensive end during the 2004 season. He was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award, given to the nation's top DE, and was named to the All-Big 12 Conference Team for the second consecutive season.

Cody played both the down position and as a spinner (standing up) during 2004 and led the Big 12 with nine sacks. He had a team-high 15 tackles for loss and 12 quarterback hurries in helping the Sooners to a perfect regular season for the second consecutive year, the 2004 Big 12 Conference Championship and a berth in the BCS National Championship Game in the 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl.

Cody also led the team in sacks in 2003 with 10 including three in Oklahoma's 52-9 rout of in-state rival Oklahoma State. The Ada, Okla., native led the team in tackles for loss with 17 (-93 yards) and was No. 3 on the team in quarterback hurries with 17. He earned second team Academic All-Big 12.

Cody saw extensive action in a backup role in 2002 including a season-high four tackles against Texas A&M. He had one sack in three different games and recovered a fumble against UTEP. Cody was out for medical reasons during the 2001 season.

In 2000, Cody was one of three true freshmen to see playing time with the Sooner defense. He had three tackles in Oklahoma's 13-2 victory against Florida State in the Orange Bowl in the National Championship Game.
