Bob with the print and with his letter jacket. While it has the OKAM patch on the back, he doesn't have the letter on the front that he earned. They were still dealing with war time shortages, so they weren't able to get the letter patch. He said that his high school team had a real problem getting jerseys and other equipment during war time. Things were a little better at OKAM.

The OSU Athletic Department sent a nice letter, the print, photos of the NC trophy and the stadium NC logo, a fact sheet on the team, and DVDs of the scoreboard announcement in 2016, and of the 1946 game. Here's Bob watching the game.

The caption for this photo from the Daily Oklahoman of August 18, 1945, read: "That's Bill Grimes (left), Comanche back, and Bob Faucette, Shawnee tackle, wrestling a bed and they're big enough to do it."

Not a tiger, the tiger went away for good in the mid-1920s. Looks to me like one of the many bucking horse graphics, similar to one of these:
