All-American: Pete Smith

Rufus Alexander

Pete Smith, T - 1937
Pete Smith earned All-America honors during the 1937 season. He used his speed and strength to become one of the top pass rushers at OU.

He and Waddy Young were credited with setting the school team record of lowest forward passing average per game, holding opponents to 38.7 yards per game during the 1937 season. Not one of the top receivers in an offense that passed more to the backs, Smith was an outstanding blocker and one of the reasons the Sooners finished third nationally in scoring.

He was drafted by the Detroit Lions during the second round in 1938.
