All-American: Tom Brahaney

Rufus Alexander

Tom Brahaney, C - 1971, 1972
Tom Brahaney was named a consensus All-American in 1971 and '72. In the 1971 "Game of the Century," which the Sooners lost to Nebraska 35-31, the Huskers' Outland Trophy winner Rich Glover called him the best center he had played against all year.

In 1972, Brahaney was a finalist for the Lombardi Award (Lineman of the Year). During the 1971 season, the Sooners led the nation in rushing, total offense and scoring, all brought about by the Brahaney-led offensive line. He was named to the all-conference squads in both 1971 and '72.

He was drafted in the fifth round by the Denver Broncos in 1973.
