All-American: Brian Bosworth

Brian Bosworth

Brian Bosworth, LB - 1985, 1986
Brian Bosworth was a consensus All-American in both 1985 and 1986. One of the greatest college football players of all time, he set the school record for tackles in a game with 22 against Miami in 1986.

The only collegian ever to win the Butkus Award twice, he led the Sooners in tackles during 1984-86 along with being named All-Big Eight each of those years. Also an excellent student, the "Boz" was a GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-American in 1986.

He was drafted first in the supplemental draft by the Seattle Seahawks in 1987.
