All-American: Forest "Spot" Geyer

Rufus Alexander

Forest "Spot" Geyer, FB - 1915
Forest "Spot" Geyer earned All-America honors in 1915. With an extremely strong arm, Geyer was the first great passer at the University of Oklahoma.

"Geyer could throw a ball 50 yards and hit a nickel with it every time," one of his teammates said. His spot passing was how he earned his nickname.

The all-conference selection also handled the kicking duties for the Sooners, but his deadly passes were a nightmare for opponents. During the 1915 season, Geyer was named captain of the team as he led the Sooners to a 10-win undefeated season, then the best in school history. He was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame in 1973.
