Oklahoma City Dolls

Note: Much of the information in this section comes from a photocopy of a team program/yearbook provided by the Metropolitan Library System of Oklahoma City. I would also like to thank Ms. Vinca Williams for the pictures that are included on this page.

Some Preliminary Facts

One day in the early 1970s, Hal and Mike Reynolds of Oklahoma City read about a well-attended women's football game between the Toledo Troopers and the Dallas Bluebonnets. This inspired them to form their own women's football team.

The Oklahoma City Dolls Football Club, Inc. was founded in March 1976.

Seventy-five women turned out for team tryouts in 1976. Thirty-five women made the team.

The team's trainer was Teresa Mercer.

  This game poster, from Ms. Vinca Williams' personal collection, quite accurately shows how the Oklahoma City Dolls' uniforms looked.

 

  From Vinca Williams' collection, this is a newspaper clipping about the Oklahoma City Dolls.
