Allen Patrick Perseveres to Star for the Sooners

When he was in high school in Conway, South Carolina, everyone know Allen Patrick was a stud running back. What they did not know was whether he would have the grades to gain admission into college and even then if he could stay elligible.

Patrick made it into Oklahoma and has done more than stay elligible. When the Sooners' star running back broke his collarbone on a dive into the end zone earlier this year, Coach Bob Stoops gave the ball to Allen Patrick, and he hasn't looked back since.

Through hard work, his faith in Jesus Christ, and opportunity presenting itself, Patrick found himself in the starting lineup when Oklahoma took the field to play Nebraska for the Big 12 Championship tonight.
