The Sooner Club of Las Vegas
The Sooner Club of Las Vegas is a support group of the University of Oklahoma. Membership is open to alumni, friends and Sooner fans in the southern Nevada area.
Our purpose is to:
Provide fellowship for alumni and friends of OU
Encourage a better informed alumni body
Promote the interests and needs of the University in the community
Our main goal is to provide an annual academic scholarship to a graduating senior from the Clark County School District in Southern Nevada. Funds for the scholarship come from membership dues and tax-deductible donations from our members. They are matched dollar for dollar by the University, effectively doubling our scholarship amount.
We thank you for your continuing support.
Glen Williams - President
Kevin Morsey - Vice President
Bryan Kurz - Scholarship Chair
Brian Nixon - Steering and Planning Committee Chair

WATCH PARTY LOCATION
We have a new home for the 2016 football season. We will watch all of the regular televised football games at the Roadrunner Saloon at 921 North Buffalo Dr. It's a good match for us as it is a Denver Broncos bar on Sundays and the Broncos owner, Pat Bowlen, is an Oklahoma Alum. The Louisiana Monroe game will be Pay-Per-View only and will not be available at the bar. Pay-Per-View game fees are based on the seating capacity of an establishment. The standard fee for home viewing is normally $39.95.
The Roadrunner Saloon is located just north of Washington and the Summerlin Parkway, adjacent to the Rebel gas station and across the street from a 7-11 and Lowes. They will offer us a variety of food and drink specials during our games. Our first game will be Saturday, Sept. 3rd at 9:00 A.M. on ABC. Come down and join us for breakfast and watch the Sooners square off against Houston, a team looking to join the Big XII in 2017.

Bob Stoops and his coaches amassed a pretty good recruiting class this year. We got three recruits from Baja Oklahoma (Texas), two each from Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana and California and one each from Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C. You can check out video clips of each recruit on www.soonersports.com. I suggest you view the clip for Austin (QB) from Waxhaw, NC. The very first play is a TD pass that travels 50-51 yards in the air and is right on the money. Another to check out is Caleb Kelly, a 5 Star linebacker, 6'3 - 225, from Fresno. We picked up 15 high school players and 4 JC transfers on the first signing day of the National Letter of Intent period.
POLLS AND AWARDS
We are ranked 3rd in pre-season polls behind Alabama and Clemson and are favored to win the Big XII and earn another spot in the football version of the "Final Four." We will get tested early with games at Houston on Sept. 3rd and against Ohio State in Norman on the 17th. Samaje Perine is a Doak Walker Award candidate this year and Baker Mayfield is expected to make a run at the Heisman Trophy. ESPN will be pushing LSU's RB Leonard Fournette, Clemson's QB Deshaun Watson and Stanford's RB Christian McCaffrey as usual though.
