Last night in Norman, Heisman Trophy winners and College Football Hall of Famers gathered together to welcome in the Spring Game and unveil the latest statuesque addition to Heisman Park. Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield was joined by fellow Heisman winning quarterbacks of the Oklahoma Sooners Jason White, Sam Bradford, and Kyler Murray.

There will be another ceremony to honor the living legend at halftime of Saturday’s Spring Game. The statue will be shown on the big screen inside the stadium. Mayfield’s statue is the sixth of the seven Heisman Trophy winners to be added to Heisman Park.

Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy after an incredible 2017 season that saw the Oklahoma Sooners beat Ohio State in Columbus in the famous “flag plant” game. Mayfield set a new standard in college football for passing efficiency that season with a 198.9 passer rating. Kyler Murray would break that record in 2018 on his way to the Heisman and the record would be broken yet again in 2019 by LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

In 2017, Mayfield completed 70.6% of his passes and threw for 4,627 yards and 43 touchdowns. He also ran for six touchdowns that season as Oklahoma made the College Football Playoff.
