The OU QB -- Briscoe May Play Again in 1967

Download pdf
Abstract/Description: What should have been the crowning year of Marlin Briscoe's career with OU football evaporated when a neck injury put him off the field for the entire season. Briscoe was deeply frustrated by this, saying, "I feel completely helpless . . . Just knowing that I might be able to help the team. . . . Football is a part of me . . . And now that part is gone." Thankfully, the CIC would grant Briscoe another chance for a senior year in football, and he would play for OU in 1967.
