OKLAHOMA CITY — Former OU running back Clendon Thomas was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Thomas joined former Oklahoma Panhandle State running back Jim Holder and about two dozen former players and coaches who were added into the hall in South Bend, Ind.
Thomas helped OU to back-to-back national titles in 1955 and 1956 and to three straight Big 7 Conference championships. He played 11 seasons in the NFL.
Holder set the NAIA rushing record and was named All-American in 1963 at what was then Panhandle A&M. He joined the Army after graduating college and was killed in Vietnam in 1966.
