Friends, fellow players, and coaches remembered former University of Oklahoma standout quarterback Steve Davis as much for his prowess from the pulpit as on the gridiron.
Davis, an ordained Baptist preacher and the Sooners' starting quarterback when it won back-to-back national championships in 1974 and 1975, was one of two people killed when a small aircraft smashed into three homes in northern Indiana, officials said Monday.
Pastor Deron Spoo at First Baptist Church in Tulsa said Davis had "very deep faith" and was committed to the church.
8:35 a.m. Steve Davis, University of Oklahoma football legend, was killed in the South Bend, Ind. plane crash Sunday night, the Saint Joseph County, Ind. coroner's office has confirmed. The other man killed has been identified as Wesley Bryan Caves, 58.
