The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) Athletics Department will welcome former OU Sooner Running Back Spencer Tillman to speak at the biennial NEO Legends Banquet on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. in the Calcagno Family Ballroom. Tickets are $100 per person or $700 for a table of eight. Spencer Tillman made his name at the University of Oklahoma, where he was an All-American running back. He captained the 1985 championship team and was named UPI Player of the Year of the Big Eight Conference in 1982, Big Eight Football Newcomer of the Year in 1983, and the MVP of the 1987 Orange Bowl. After OU, Tillman was drafted in the fifth round of the 1987 draft by the Houston Oilers, where he remained for two seasons. He earned a Super Bowl ring with the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIV and transitioned into broadcasting following the completion of his playing career with the Oilers in 1994. NEO began hosting the Legends Banquet in 2015 as a way to bring legendary sports names to the Miami community. “NEO Athletics is very excited to continue our Legends Series by bringing Spencer Tillman to our Campus and Community,” said Dale Patterson, NEO Athletic Director. “His experiences at OU, professional football, and sports broadcasting will be very entertaining and inspirational. We encourage everyone to come out enjoy a great meal, hear a great speaker, and support the Norse Campus Ministry and NEO Athletics.”

“An Evening with Spencer Tillman” is sponsored by Crossland Construction and seating is limited. The deadline to purchase tickets is Friday, Nov. 10, and may be purchased by contacting the NEO Athletics Department at 918-540-6327.
