Steve and I had just re-connected our friendship & had been corresponding about articles I'd written as OU 1975 Yearbook Editor. We had great memories of our days at OU when he quarterbacked the football team to '74, '75 National Championships and my '75 OU Yearbook was chosen 1st in Nation. He wrote an article for the '75 Yearbook about that magical season stating: "Our team success was not solely due to the action on Saturday afternoon. There were men who were on the scout-team throughout the week, collecting just as many aches and pains as the starters, contributing equally to our national championship." Steve recently wrote me asking for a copy of that article saying: "I would love to see what words of wisdom I attempted to pass on 38 years ago." I told him he "Passed on Wisdom" and "Passed for TD's"! He said it seems as if it were yesterday when we were in Norman having the time of our lives. And now, my friend, you've "Passed On, Way too Soon." Rest in Peace. - Debbie Ritter

This tragedy has touched our community. I had never heard of Steve before today but from all I've read about him he seems to have been a great person and role model. May he RIP and my condolences to all the people of Oklahoma.

I went to OU during the glory days 1970-1974. I had the honor to watch many of the great athletes who I attended classes with. They have many who have gone on to be great citizens and being taken from this earth way too soon. He will join Leroy Selmon as one of those. I was in the class of "74

One of my childhood hero's has left. I can remember going to games at OU. I can remember trying to be Steve Davis in the back yard football games, I was no Steve Davis but there was no telling me different. I can still remember the autumns when I couldn't wait to listen to OU on the radio and Mike Treps blaring out what the SOONER MAJIC was all about. Steve Davis understood that MAJIC he was a part of the MAJIC. It was a gift of life to have seen him play.

Steve was my idle when I was a little boy some 40 years ago. I can remember running the wishbone in my yard pretending to be Steve Davis and making a pitchout at the last moment, so Little Joe could run down the sidelines for a TD.

Could never beat an Oklahoma kid getting to live the dream of being a Sooner football player and winning a National Championship!

Great Player, Great Leader!
God Bless!!!

While I was at Boys State in 1972, Steve told me that he was going to play quarterback for the Sooners.

I said, "No way you can't pass the ball."

He proved me wrong in the 1976 Orange Bowl, when he threw a beautiful pass to Tinker Owens.

The Sooners went on to defeat Michigan that night, and Soonernation cheered.

Steve's Family,

What a shock to all of you. But your comfort is knowing that Steve is with Jesus and has found glory in his continuing witness. I heard him preach when he was a Senior at OU. You then he was great believer. On the field he was a great leader. For someone to come into the situation OU had and lead the team, particularly against SC, was an example I wish todays OU QB would crasp. He will be missed for his smile, unparrelled optimism, eloquence, and as a class person. I know, as one who lost their spouse, no one will take his place, but your grief will be lessend by God and frieds. Bless you and keep you. God will shine upon you and give you peace,

I ran Jefferson House for two years and got to know his late brother George fairly well. Then I ran Washington House (now Gomer Jones House) in the 1973-1974 year, got to know many of the great players on that OU. Steve was a goid guy, never a problem, which isn't something i can say about all of them. I was in the stands when they lost to KU, it wasn't until the 4th quarter we began to think we'd lose the game which ended the long winning streak. He was always classy and represented OU so well.
