    Jack Cloud non member OK Sports HOF

    Any idea why Jack Cloud a part Cherokee, native Oklahoman born in Britton, OK, ALL American HB 47-49 at William and Mary and inducted in the College FB HOF in 1990 isn't a member of the OK Sports HOF?
    Would he be the only College FB HOF fame honoree from OK not inducted?

    He may have been born in Oklahoma but was raised and he played his HS and college ball in Virginia. That's not an Oklahoman

    Does the same criteria, where he went to school and played ball disqualify Jim Thorpe?

    "The basic criteria for induction are accomplishments in sports and identification with Oklahoma."

    Im going to guess Mr Cloud and his family don't consider himself an Oklahoman for one.
