NORMAN, Okla. -- During his senior season at Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge High School, Trey Millard knew exactly what he wanted out of his college football experience, even if it struck others as a little odd.
The Oklahoma sophomore wanted to play fullback, not tight end or defensive end -- positions that would present opportunities to earn the spotlight.
"You have to be kind of messed up to want to play that position," offensive tackle Donald Stephenson said. "But he's a tough guy, he likes contact, that's just Trey."
Millard's choice to play fullback was the driving force behind his decision to sign with the Sooners instead of the hometown Missouri Tigers.
