P.L. Lindley Presented with Don Key Award -- OU Football's Highest Honor

P.L. Lindley, a valuable reserve throughout his career and a part-time starter this season, was presented the Don Key Award at midfield before Saturday night’s kickoff. That’s the honor given the Sooner who best exemplifies Key, an All-Big 8 guard under Barry Switzer whose battle with cancer ended his football career prematurely.

Lindley has played linebacker primarily at OU. He started in place of the injured Devante Bond against Texas, Kansas State and Kansas this year.

He was used as an extra defensive lineman down the stretch of OU’s 2013 season against opponents’ heavy sets.

“He’s never gone in and not done really well. That’s the truth,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops said last week, “He’s played inside and outside linebacker. He’s played four-technique (defensive line) and he did that well. He’s a special guy that way.” (Tulsa World)
