Date of Birth



Midland, TX


University of Oklahoma (1970-1972)


Oklahoma center Tom Brahaney was the hub of a line of one of the most successful offenses in college football history. Brahaney became a starter halfway through his sophomore year on a team that placed second in the Big 8. He impressed coaches by consistently grading in the 90's on his blocking assignments. In several contests he graded near perfection. The following year, Oklahoma installed the Wishbone offense and records soon fell. With Brahaney opening holes, OU led the nation in rushing, total offense and scoring. In the 1971 "Game of the Century" with Nebraska, the match up of Brahaney vs. Husker middle guard and fellow Hall of Famer Rich Glover was the featured one-on-one match up of the contest. That year Tom was both an all-conference and consensus All-America. As a senior, Tom was a team captain, a finalist for the Lombardi Award, and repeated as a consensus All-America choice. For the second straight year Oklahoma went 11-1 and repeated as the nation's number two team in the final polls. In the pros he played nine seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals.
