John Roush, OG - 1974
John Roush was named consensus All-American in 1974. The offensive guard was one of eight Sooners to receive the honor, the most for any OU team up to that point.

Roush credited a great deal of his success to his teammates. He said Lee Roy Selmon, Lucious Selmon and Rod Shoate were large factors. "I had to block against them in practice when I was on the scout team. Whew!" Roush was all-conference in 1973 and '74.

He excelled not only on the field, but also in the classroom, as he was a GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-America selection in 1974.

He was drafted in the 15th round by the San Diego in 1975.
