NORMAN, Okla. -- Greg Goodhue, an All-American and national champion in 1974 on the University of Oklahoma men’s gymnastics team, passed away in his hometown of Weatherford, Texas, Monday. He was 60 years old.
Goodhue, a native of Lakewood, Colo., was a two-time letterwinner for the Sooners in 1973 and ’74 and competed primarily on vault and floor exercise. In 1974, he won a national championship and was named an All-American on the vault. He was the second Sooner in the history of the program to win an individual national championship and the third to earn All-American status.
“We are saddened by the news and send our condolences to Greg’s family,” OU head coach Mark Williams said. “Greg was a pioneer and a great ambassador for the OU gymnastics program.
“In addition to being a great athlete at Oklahoma, he coached athletes that came into the program and was an active supporter in our alumni program. He was here for our team reunion at the NCAA Championships in April. He’ll certainly be missed in the gymnastics community.”
After his collegiate career, Goodhue remained active in gymnastics. He coached and worked at the Olympia Gymnastics Center in San Antonio. After moving to Weatherford, he continued to give talks about gymnastics and was involved with the local gymnastics club.
Goodhue’s service will be Saturday, Dec. 15, at 12 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Church in Weatherford, Texas.
