Meet Tim Rucker, the #1OklahomaFan for 2018!

A native of Tulsa, Rucker was voted by Sooner faithful as the #1OklahomaFan after submitting his story and T-shirt design in a contest on SoonerSports.com.

The official 2018 There's Only One Oklahoma shirt and hat, designed by Tim and produced by Norman-based Top of the World, are now available:


Other local retailers carrying the product include Academy, Balfour (Norman), Bedlam Sports (Tulsa), Big Red (Oklahoma City), Cracker Barrel (14 locations in OK, AR, MO & TX), Dicks, Hibbett, JC Penney, Kohls, Lids, Nabors Shoe Center (Weatherford), Norman Regional and the OU Bookstore (Norman).

As the winner of the contest, Rucker and his family were invited to Norman for a VIP experience that included a visit to OU's football facilities, a photoshoot and a tour of Top of the World, where Tim got to see his hats in production.

The OU Athletics Department partnered with IMG College Licensing and Top of the World to present this year's #1OklahomaFan contest.
