Players Scoring on their First Play

Thanks to Dennis "Stats" Kelly from the OU radio crew who provided his research for this page. Although this data is hard to find and validate, I'm hoping that more research can be done in the future for existing and new categories where it makes sense. If you can help, please contact me.

  • 'First Play' is specific to the selected category. For example, Tim Duncan's first reception was in 1999, and his first run was in 2001.
  • These lists reflect the player's first plays while at OU. Plays at previous schools are not considered.
  • Lee Morris' second catch was also a touchdown (18 yards from Baker Mayfield at Ohio State).
  • Billy Brooks scored on a 34-yard end around in the third quarter at Kansas State in 1973. He also had another carry for -1 yard giving him two carries for 33 yards. Those were his first two carries as a Sooner, but it is unclear which was first.
