Last season, the outfielder hit.296 with 47 RBI and 10 home runs in 51 games with the Sooners. He also has rushed for 892 yards and 11 TDs.

Murray started his career at Texas A&M, where his father, Kevin Murray, set season and career passing records as the Aggies' quarterback in the mid-1980s. As a result, Murray is the fifth Sooner to take home the award, joining Sam Bradford (2008), White (2003, '04) and running back Billy Sims (1978). "All the hard work with my teammates has really paid off".
