Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Former Sooner Pendleton wins the John McLendon Memorial Minority Scholarship: Former Oklahoma football player Carl Pendleton has been named as one of five recipients for the ninth annual John McLendon Memorial Minority Scholarship. Pendleton will receive $10,000 towards his graduate studies. The other winners are Keenan Blalark of Northern Illinois, Alejandra Diaz-Calderon of Notre Dame, Keunta Miles of Central Florida and Araceli Ortiz of Stanford. Pendleton II is a 2006 graduate of Oklahoma, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology. As a member of the Sooner football team, Pendleton was a starter for the 2004 Big 12 Championship team, as well as the BCS National Championship game that year. He was a member of Oklahoma's Student Athlete Advisory Council and, in 2006, represented the school at the NCAA Leadership Conference. Due to an unhealthy environment, Pendleton bypassed his final season of eligibility to adopt his stepbrother. While supporting a two-person family, Pendleton has remained a positive role model in the community. He has taught Sunday school classes for elementary school age boys and is involved with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Oklahoma. He also travels on a weekly basis to speak to schools, churches and youth groups.(
