QB Steve Davis dies
The plane, which was carrying four passengers, actually touched down at the airport before going back up and crashing into three homes in a nearby neighborhood. The pilot reported a problem with electrical power on approach.
Fellow passenger Wesley Caves also was killed. Two other passengers were seriously injured and a woman in one of the houses also was hurt. All three were taken to Memorial Hospital.
Davis played quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners from 1972-76 and was the 1976 Orange Bowl MVP. Davis, 60, was 32-1-1 as a starter and led the Sooners to two national titles.
I'm saddened by the loss of Steve Davis. Great role model for young people on & off the field. He was my 1st QB & had an outstanding career.
Davis had also become a mentor to several Oklahoma quarterbacks over the years, including Landry Jones, whom Davis sent a letter of encouragement during Jones' struggles last season.
