Sooners Legend Dewey Selmon headed to the College Football Hall of Fame

The College Football Hall of Fame has enshrined a number of Oklahoma Sooners greats of the past. And according to Brett McMurphy of the Action Network, another Sooners Legend will be inducted as part of the 2024 class.

Dewey Selmon will join brother and fellow defensive line stalwart Lee Roy Selmon in the College Football Hall of Fame.

Dewey was a member of the Oklahoma Sooners national championship teams in 1974 and 1975 and earned All-American honors in 1975. He was a two-time All-Big 8 selection for the Sooners.

In 1974 and 1975, Selmon and the Sooners went 22-1. During his career, he and brother Lee Roy were considered the best defensive linemen in the game and were the anchors to a Sooners defense that only allowed 8.4 points per game in 1974 and 12.3 points per game in 1975.

The Selmon Brothers were enshrined on campus at the University of Oklahoma back on Sept. 24, 2022.

Dewey Selmon was drafted in the second round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and played 80 games in six seasons between the Bucs and the Chargers.
