All-American: Buddy Jones

Buddy Jones

Buddy Jones, S - 1950
Buddy Jones earned All-America honors in 1950. A 5-10, 155-pound safety, Jones played well above his size throughout his career.
His outstanding play during both the 1949 and '50 Sugar Bowls were key factors in the Sooner wins.
Oklahoma's secondary was passed on more times (290) than any other team in the nation during the 1949 season. Jones' ability was one of the major reasons OU gave up only five touchdown passes during that season.
Jones also saw time at halfback during the 1947 season, where he averaged nearly eight yards a carry.
