Another Oklahoma Sooner football great passed away on Saturday.
Former defensive back Rickey Dixon, who had been battling ALS, died at the age of 53.
Dixon was a consensus All-American in 1987. During the same season, Dixon was named winner of the Jim Thorpe Award.
The award is annually given to the nation's top defensive back.
Dixon enjoyed a six-year NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals for five season before wrapping up his professional career with the Los Angeles Raiders in 1993.
News 9 Sports Director Dean Blevins interviewed Dixon back in 2012.
