All-American: Antonio Perkins

Rufus Alexander

Antonio Perkins, DB/KR/PR - 2003
Antonio Perkins was a consensus All-American at return specialist for OU in 2003. Perkins displayed an uncanny knack for finding holes in the opponent's return coverage and the speed to take advantage of breakdowns.

He set an NCAA record with four punt returns for touchdowns during the season and also set NCAA records for touchdown returns in one game (three) and punt return yards in a game (277) against UCLA.

He set an Oklahoma school record for career punt return yards and is just one punt return for a touchdown shy of the all-time NCAA career record. His TD returns against UCLA were 84, 74 and 65 yards along with a 69-yard return against Missouri.

Perkins started every game of the 2003 season at cornerback and recorded two interceptions. Perkins also excelled in the classroom with All-Big 12 Academic honors.
