Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy is one of six inductees for the 2021 class of the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame.
“As a native Oklahoman, I am humbled and honored to be included in this year’s class for the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame,” Gundy said in a statement.
Gundy is the winningest coach in Oklahoma State football history, holding a 137-67 record in 16 years as head coach. He also played quarterback for the Cowboys from 1986-89.
The Midwest City High School graduate recently led the Cowboys to their 20th bowl game victory in their 15th consecutive bowl game appearance. He is joined in the Hall class by former Oklahoma football player Robert Kalsu, former University of Oklahoma women’s basketball player Stacey Dales, Roy Clymer (contributor, NCAA and NFL official), Dan Hays (men’s basketball coaching, Oklahoma Christian University) and Gene Stephenson (baseball coaching, Wichita State University).
Dales was a two-time first-team All-American at OU and led OU to the 2002 Final Four. She also was named Big 12 Conference player of the year twice. Retired from the WNBA, she currently is a reporter for the NFL Network.
Kalsu, born in Oklahoma City, was an All-American offensive tackle for the Sooners in 1967. After one year in the NFL, the Del City graduate joined the U.S. Army and fought in the Vietnam War. He was killed in action on July 21, 1970 at the age of 25. He was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.
The inductees will be introduced at the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame’s first quarterly Leadership Luncheon at a date to be determined. The induction ceremony is scheduled for Aug. 2.
