Join us Friday, Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. for our Friday Financial Forum. We will meet at the Friday Forum Room at Arvest's East Side Branch, located at 4225 S.E. Adams Rd. in Bartlesville, Okla.*
This week’s featured speaker is Thomas Lott, one of the University of Oklahoma’s most celebrated alums. A native of San Antonio, Texas, Thomas was a decorated multisport high school athlete who was recognized as a Parade All-American quarterback. After earning a scholarship to the University of Oklahoma, in addition to being a member of the 1975 national championship team, he was the starting quarterback at OU for three years, 1976 to 1978, during which the Sooners won three conference championships and Thomas was a two-time all-conference selection.
Drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, Thomas spent several years on the professional level. In 2006 Thomas was inducted into the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2010 he was honored as an inductee into the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame.
Following his football career, Thomas successfully transitioned into coach and leader in the community. He has coached multiple sports including football, baseball, basketball and track at all levels from youth to semi-pro. Thomas has also trained athletes for nearly thirty years, having helped many student-athletes earn FBS and Division 1 scholarships.
Thomas resides in Oklahoma City with his wife, Beth, where he continues to coach and train athletes. He has recently authored a book, Getting in the Game: A Parent’s Guide to Raising an Athlete. Thomas is a weekly sports radio guest with James Hale on KREF 1400 and internet and cable T.V. personality where he co-hosts Coaches Cabana (coachescabana.com* and Cox Communications channel 1333) with coach Barry Switzer and Mark Rogers.
