Early life

Bob Fenimore was born in Woodward, Oklahoma on October 6, 1925. As a youth, Fenimore was heavily involved with sports. His childhood home had a front yard that resembled a football field, sparking his early interest in the sport. Fenimore's interest in Oklahoma A & M (now Oklahoma State University) started early as well, even though his childhood sweetheart and later wife, Veta Jo, attended the University of Oklahoma.[1]

Fenimore began his attendance at Oklahoma A & M in 1943, working toward a degree in education.

College and Professional Career

As a player, he set many school records, including the career interception mark of 18 which still stands at Oklahoma State today.[2] He was 195 pounds and could step the 100 yard dash in 9.7 compared with the world record at the time of 9.4. He led the nation in total offense in 1944 and in total offense and rushing in 1945 when he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting behind Army's Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard. The Aggies were 8-1 in 1944 and 9-0 in 1945—the only unbeaten/untied season in Oklahoma A&M/State football history.[3]

Due to injuries, Fenimore played sparingly in the 1946 season and despite the risk, the Chicago Bears made Fenimore the first pick overall in the 1947 NFL Draft. He would play only the 1947 season in Chicago appearing in 10 games.[4][5]

In 1972 Fenimore was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. In 2007, Fenimore was inducted into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame.

Personal life

After his football career, Fenimore returned to Oklahoma and went to work for Massachusetts Mutual Life insurance Company in Oklahoma City. In 1953 Fenimore and his family returned to Stillwater and worked for Mass Mutual financial services until he retired. Fenimore died on July 28, 2010.[6][7]
