Teddy Lehman ended his OU football career as one of the greatest linebackers in school history. The 2003 Butkus Award winner is now in the booth as an analyst for official OU football radio broadcasts.
But in the summer of 2000, Lehman arrived on campus for his first season. He hailed from Fort Gibson, Okla., population 4,000. On the day he registered for classes and moved into the dorms, he first stopped by the football facility to meet with Brent Venables, the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach.
The Sooners had just finished a workout.
“So this massive dude walks by,” Lehman recalled. “He’s got his cleats on, OU shorts, and he doesn’t have a shirt on. Full beard. Shredded. Gigantic.
“Coach V says, ‘Have you met Torrance?’
“That was the first time I thought: ‘Man, I’m getting in over my head here. I’ve got everyone fooled. I don’t know why they gave me a scholarship, but the jig is up.’”

I read when Torrance showed up before the 1999 season, Calmus was the midddle LB, and Marshall basically told him that he was going to play MLB and Calmus would have to move to weak-side LB. I guess you didn't mess with Marshall.:D

I knew Torrance & he was a great young man. He was a gentle giant. Very nice & polite unless you were his
opponent on the football field:lol:
