Steve Owens (born December 9, 1947 in Gore, Oklahoma) was the 1969 Heisman Trophy winner. While attending the University of Oklahoma Owens was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Owens was the second Oklahoma Sooners player to win the Heisman Trophy, after Billy Vessels, and preceding Jason White and Billy Sims. He is the school's all time scorer with fifty-five touchdowns, and is third most on its career rushing chart with 4,041 yards. He was drafted by the Detroit Lions with their first round pick in 1970. In 1971, he became the first Lion to rush for over a thousand yards and made the Pro Bowl. However in 1975, Owens was forced to retire after a series of knee injuries had plagued him for the four seasons during 1972-75. He served as Director of Athletics at the University of Oklahoma for several years during the 1990s.
