Colorado Sooner Discusses Denver Watch Party Phenomenon
A Special Family Reunion
For as long as she could remember, Claire Switzer dreamed of attending the University of Oklahoma. After all, with a name like "Switzer," OU seemed the logical choice.
The OU Club of Houston helped turned Claire's dream into a reality by presenting her a club scholarship in advance of the 2013-14 academic year.
Now a freshman student at Oklahoma, Claire hoped she might run into a distant relative of hers while in Norman. Indeed, Claire is related to former OU football coach Barry Switzer.
That encounter happened on October 21, "Sooner" than Claire could have imagined and came as a complete surprise to her. Read her account of meeting Coach Barry Switzer here.
