Oklahoma Sooners: Dusty Dvoracek

Teddy Lehman and Dusty Dvoracek once pounded opposing running backs as star defenders for the Oklahoma Sooners. Today, the two are pounding the airwaves. After stints in pro football, Lehman and Dvoracek have returned to Norman as co-hosts of “The Rush” on SportsTalk 1400am.

Lehman, who won the Butkus Award with the Sooners in 2003, spoke with SoonerNation about his new gig, life without Brent Venables and the return of Mike Stoops.

Jake Trotter: How did you get into having your own radio show?

Teddy Lehman: It kinda started when I was in the USFL (in Las Vegas). Me and a friend there started doing a show on ESPN radio Las Vegas. I liked it a little bit, and wanted to do more. Dusty, who was with an Omaha team, had interest in doing something similar. My wife happened to work out with (SportsTalk 1400 owner Randy Laffoon) every morning at 5:30 a.m. I told her to tell him, me and Dusty are interested in doing a show, and if we could at least meet with him and pick his brain to see if he wanted to pursue that. They had a full lineup, and I got a call from Randy saying he was not looking to hire anyone, but they had some guys taking time off around the holiday season and asked if would we be interested in filling in for some shows in November and December. I guess he liked us, and booked a couple times. Soon, we negotiated a deal to be full-time.
