All-American: Cassius Gentry

Rufus Alexander

Cassius Gentry, T - 1934
Cassius Gentry earned All-America honors during the 1934 season. Considered the fastest player at OU during his career, Gentry was one of the top defensive players in the country.

The two-time all-conference selection may have had his greatest game during the 1933 season against Iowa State, when he blocked three punts. His final block came late in the fourth quarter with the Sooners trailing. It set up OU for the winning touchdown. At 185 pounds, Gentry was a fearsome tackler. Doubling as the punter for the Sooners, after one kick he made the tackle on the play.

He signed with the Providence Steamrollers in 1935.
