While the national press and the sound-bite society has moved on, for nearly thirty minutes OU head Coach Bob Stoops anonymously aided in the tornado cleanup efforts in Moore, and continued to work even after being recognized. Others aiding in the cleanup said the coach just blended in with everybody else and said nothing, just worked. This is classic Bob Stoops as his attendance wasn’t publicized and he wasn’t trying to garner any accolades for his efforts, he was just trying to help those in need. This is why so many of the Sooner faithful are so loyal to Coach Stoops as he is not only a great football coach, but a true humanitarian who cares about the Sooner community as well. Really care…not for the camera cares like so many other coaches.
I believe Bob Stoops deserves a loud and boisterous “Boomer” for his charity and giving. It is great to see a positive story amongst all the bad and depressing stories that fill the news these days.
