Date of Birth



Woodward, OK


Oklahoma State University (1943-1946)


Known as the "Blond Bomber", Bob Fenimore was a marvelous triple-threat player during the mid 1940's. Homer Cooke of the National Collegiate Athletic Bureau labeled Fenimore as "the greatest one-man offense in college football history." As a 17-year old freshman in 1943, Fenimore led Oklahoma State (known at the time as Oklahoma A&M) in rushing, passing and scoring. In 1944, he led the nation in total offense and his per-game average, 195 yards, was the highest on record up to that time. In 1945, he led the nation in both rushing and total offense. He was an All-America back in both 1944 and 1945. Fenimore, a native of Woodward, Oklahoma, led Oklahoma State to the school's first two bowl games. In the 1945 Cotton Bowl, he scored two touchdowns in a 34-0 victory over Texas Christian. The following season he amassed 206 yards in total offense in defeating St. Mary's in the Sugar Bowl. Fenimore's 1946 senior season was marred by injuries as he played in only five games. When his collegiate playing days were completed he left as college football's career all-time total offense leader.
