Randy Hughes

Randy Hughes, DB - 1974
Randy Hughes earned All-America honors in 1974. Heavily recruited by every college football power coming out of Tulsa Memorial, the safety was chosen by the Tulsa World as the Prep Player of the Year, the first time a defensive back had ever won that award.

During his career at OU, he tied the record for passes broken up in a season with 12 in 1974 and finished fourth on the career interception list with 14.

Also an excellent student, Hughes was an academic all-conference selection in 1973 and '74, honored by the National Football Foundation as a scholar-athlete and named a GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-American.

Hughes was drafted in the fourth round by the Dallas Cowboys in 1975.
