All-American: Granville Norris

Rufus Alexander

Granville Norris, T - 1927
Granville Norris earned All-America honors during the 1927 season. With incredible strength and speed, Norris was a terror for opposing offenses.

Overlooked for conference honors during the 1926 season, Norris was considered by many to be the best tackle in the league as he had the most blocked punts in the Missouri Valley. During that season, he scored against Drake after recovering a blocked kick. His block against Missouri that year sealed the win for the Sooners.

Captain of the 1927 squad, Norris had an outstanding game against Kansas as he dominated the Jayhawks' offense, helping the Sooners to a 26-7 win.
