Former All-American Andros Dies

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Sooner great Plato Andros dies: Plato Andros, who after fighting the Nazis in World War II became a 1946 football all-American at the University of Oklahoma, died Monday. He was 86. Andros was a guard for Jim Tatum's 1946 Sooners. He distinguished himself with a superb defensive performance against Army that season. The Cadets were one of college football's all-time greatest teams and hadn't lost in three years, but '45 Heisman Trophy winner Glenn Davis was held to 19 yards on 12 carries. Army broke out of a 7-7 halftime tie and won 21-7. Andros served four years with the Coast Guard. Services will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Rose Hill Cemetery Chapel. Family will receive friends at Norman's Primrose Funeral Home from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday. (The Oklahoman)
