WATCH: Oklahoma drops inspirational hype video after Baker Mayfield wins Heisman

Baker Mayfield-Oklahoma-Oklahoma Sooners-Oklahoma football

Baker Mayfield wants to be an inspiration to young kids to go after their dreams.

That’s his clear message in an amazing new hype video from Oklahoma football. The clip recaps his journey from being a childhood Oklahoma fan, to walking on for the Sooners, to winning the Heisman Trophy and joining a group of Sooner legends.

“It still doesn’t feel real,” Mayfield said. “Just to be up there in the discussion with those guys, being such a huge OU fan growing up, those were the legends I looked up to and tried to emulate my game after. It’s an honor.”

Mayfield will now be the sixth Oklahoma player to get a statue at Heisman Park in Norman, Okla. Some fans want that statue to show him planting the Oklahoma flag in Ohio State’s field.

Regardless of the pose the statue takes, Mayfield knows what he wants his legacy to be.

“I hope that I leave my legacy – I’m not done yet – but I leave my legacy as somebody that never gave up,” Mayfield said. “And so those kids, if they love OU as much as I did, to chase their dreams.”
