We’ve known it was coming but now we know when and where. Lincoln Riley announced the details of Baker Mayfield’s statue during his spring football press conference on Monday.
Mayfield’s statue will be unveiled at the annual spring game on April 18th. Here’s the thing though, they’ll unveil the statue inside the stadium and not at the park. The reason why is pretty clear.
“I think the thought is instead of a ceremony outside the stadium, why not include all 50, 60, 70-thousand, why not include all of them in that moment.”Lincoln Riley
In three seasons at Oklahoma Mayfield passed for 12,292 yards and 119 touchdowns while leading the Sooners to three consecutive Big 12 championships and two College Playoff appearances.
In 2017 he became the sixth Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Oklahoma.
