Eric Striker was named the winner of the second J.D. Runnels OU Media Cooperation Award, which is voted on by beat writers who regularly cover OU football.
Striker was often the most popular interview this season and hit on a wide range of topics besides football during media sessions.
The award is named after Runnels, a former OU fullback from 2002-05 whose cooperation was appreciated by the media. Cornerback Zack Sanchez was the inaugural winner in 2014.
Striker joked with the media after being presented with the award.
“Like I said, I had to warm up to you guys. I never thought really highly of the media. I really just thought you guys, you know, took stuff and ran with it and turned words. A lot of people obviously still do that,” Striker said, smiling. (Tulsa World)
