Bowers talk about progress at OU

Brett Bowers has had plenty of ups and downs early in his Sooner career. The junior strong safety from Jacksonville, Fla., has finally started to become a major factor on special teams in 2007.

Bowers talked with SoonerScoop.com writer-at-large Luke Mildren about his experiences at Oklahoma and his impressions of some of his teammates. Bowers also talked about his role on special teams as well as up-and-coming freshman who are standing out in recent practices.

SoonerScoop.com: Can you talk about what it's like being a part of the special teams unit?
Brett Bowers:

Bowers:
