J.D. “Jakie” Sandefer III

Jakie Sandefer was passionate about everything he took on, including coming to University of Oklahoma from Breckenridge,Texas to join the Sooners.

He was very successful playing on teams that went 30 and 2 winning three conference championships and two Orange Bowls. For years after his playing days Jakie was a huge supporter of OU athletic programs and extremely helpful in recruiting some of the best football players to ever appear on the Gaylord Family field. He continued his passion for helping young athletes after their playing days by finding gainful employment for some in need. Due to the changes in employing people with all the intensive vetting procedures, it was necessary to formalize Jakie’s efforts with the creation of Sooners Helping Sooners, Inc.
