Helmet stickers: Week 8
By Brandon Chatmon
Here are the helmet stickers after Oklahoma’s 34-19 win over Kansas on Saturday.
Receiver Sterling Shepard: The sophomore receiver helped the Sooners finally find some big plays in the passing game with seven receptions for 82 yards and two touchdowns. Shepard was particularly explosive on first-down plays with four receptions for 68 yards and both scores on first down.
Running back Roy Finch: It remains hard to understand why Finch is not a major part of the offensive game plan each and every week. He averaged 8 yards per touch from scrimmage (8 touches, 64 yards) and led the Sooners with 93 all-purpose yards. At some point he’s got to become a mainstay in an OU offense searching for playmakers, right?
Defensive end Charles Tapper: It’s amazing how often Tapper earns a helmet sticker for a guy who didn’t play much football in high school. He earned yet another helmet sticker with six tackles, including three tackles for loss and two sacks. It’s time to start talking about Tapper being an All-Big 12-type player right now instead of in the future.
