Sooners to hold special flyover before Bedlam to honor Winchester

NORMAN, Ok (KSWO) - The Oklahoma Sooners will honor a former football player who was killed in the shooting at Will Rogers Airport in November.

According to the University of Oklahoma’s Assistant Athletic Director there will be a special commercial flyover before the game in Norman by a Southwest Airlines aircraft.

The flyover honors Michael Winchester, a Southwest Airlines employee, who was shot and killed while walking to his car at the airport. Winchester was a punter for the Sooners in the 1980’s and was part of the 1985 National Championship team.

His shooter was later found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a truck in a parking garage across the street from the Southwest Airlines terminal.
