Join us Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. for our Friday Financial Forum. We will meet at the Friday Forum Room at Arvest's East Side Branch, located at 4225 S.E. Adams Rd. in Bartlesville, Okla.*

This week’s featured speaker is Joe Washington, who undoubtedly is one of the most prolific running backs in Sooner history. He currently serves as the executive director of the Varsity O Association and assistant to the director of athletics at his alma mater, Oklahoma University.

Joe was one of the biggest reasons for two back-to-back national championships for the Sooners in 1974 and 1975. He made every All-American team including the UPI, AP, Walter Camp Foundation, The Sporting News and the NEA list. He came in third for the Heisman Trophy behind Archie Griffin from Ohio State and USC's Anthony Davis, finishing his college career with 4,071 rushing yards, 39 touchdowns to his credit and 19 plus games of 100 yards. "That is even more incredible," says Switzer, "because Little Joe only played half of every game; we were usually that far ahead by half-time."

A first round draft pick (#4) in 1976, Joe went on to have a stellar career in the NFL, winning a Super Bowl with the Washington Redskins in 1982, after being named Redskins MVP in 1981 and also named one of the 70 greatest Redskins player in franchise history. 

Joe has many talents and has also authored a book, “The 7 Secrets of the Silver Shoes.” This book is a glimpse into Joe's simple take on life  a home-spun philosophy and genuine humility that has served him well through the years and still impacts young athletes and all privileged to know one of the great Sooner legends of all time.
