Career highlights and awards

Jim Grisham (December 4, 1942 – July 30, 2012) was an American football fullback and linebacker, who played at the University of Oklahoma from 1961 to 1964.

Early years

Grisham attended Olney High School, where he played quarterback, End, halfback and fullback. As a junior in 1959, he played halfback, helping the team reach the Texas Class 2A semifinal.

As a senior in 1960, he was named the starter at fullback after Harold Phillip graduated. He led his team to a second straight semifinal appearance, while scoring 21 touchdowns and earning All-state honors.[1]

College career

Grisham accepted a football scholarship from the University of Oklahoma, to play under head coach Bud Wilkinson.[2] As a sophomore, he posted 147 carries for 711 yards (4.8-yard average) and 8 touchdowns.

As a junior in 1963, he was named All-American, playing both offense (fullback) and defense (linebacker). He tallied 153 carries for 861 yards (5.6-yard average) and 8 touchdowns. He rushed for 218 yards and scored 4 touchdowns against Oklahoma State University in the Bedlam Series. He finished second in the Big Eight Conference in rushing behind Gale Sayers.
