What a loss we all feel. My heartfelt prayers not only go out to Steve's parents, brothers, his son Bo, Fran, Steve's many friends and former teammates, but also to those countless persons that were touched by the life of Steve Davis in so many meaningful ways. As his younger OU teammate and fellow FCAer, I certainly admired and looked up to Steve (and remember desiring more time with him, like many). Yes, Steve was an attractive, good-hearted, gracious, Baptist kid from Sallisaw, but he was also “danged” tough and wasn't afraid to compete (to “put it all on the line”). In my eyes, he demonstrated more Courage than anyone on those 2 National Championship teams. He played beyond his abilities, and was a leader who was fueled by integrity and a spiritual clarity of purpose that was beyond his years. Losing was not something he seemed to contemplate. He was simply a Winner, but not just on the field. When many of us during the school week were visiting girl friends, studying or hanging out in the OU dorm, Steve was flying that airplane (at times I was invited to accompany him) to share his larger-than-life Christian faith, which was at the heart of everything he was--or wasn't. None of us are perfect, but Steve Davis should easily be remembered as the finest ambassador for Oklahoma Sooner Football (and Oklahoma life) that there will likely ever be. Truly, he is one of a kind.

We will miss you Steve! Thank you, my Christian brother for the champion you are and the faithful life you lived. Amen.

Dear Davis family, I was so shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Oklahoma's favorite son. Wow, Steve's parents must have been such Godly parents,I have prayed for years that my two sons would follow in Steve's footsteps not only as football players, but more importantly as godly young men. I feel as if I have lost my older Christian mentor. I was 15 when Steve came to First Baptist Church in Heavener, Ok. to lead a youth revival. I sat next to his wife Judy, and he autographed the church bulltin in 1977. Just this year by accident the bulletin was distroyed by water damage and I cried, but then I remembered that he has also signed my leather purse at a State Wide Evangelism conference. Steve was apprehensive to sign my leather purse. He said "Are you sure you want me to sign on your nice leather purse" and I told him I have no doubt in my mind. Only God knew how much that autography meant to me a week ago when I found out that he has gone to be with our Lord and Savior. The moment I found out, I had to call my dad, back in Oklahoma. I miss you and your excellent example of Christ to this world. Can hardly wait to see you again in glory. Your were a true Champion for OU and more importantly a Champion for Christ.

Prayers for the Davis Family. I want to share a quick story. When I was maybe 8 or 9, (I was the size of a 5 year old)... I remember being at a SHS bonfire rally. Steve carried me on his shoulders for a long time that night. He was my childhood hero. Even as a High School Senior, he showed a maturity and class beyond his years. He always showed me kindness and I will remember this great man for as long as I live. God Bless Steve and your Family.
