Oklahoma Shooter – Back by Popular Demand – UPDATED

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013 | Books

oklahoma_shooterThe book Oklahoma Shooter: The Dan Hodge Story was published in 2009 and all 2,000 copies quickly sold out. We have had so many requests for books that we have reprinted a select number. This will be the last reprint so order it now.

Dan Hodge is one of the most fascinating athletes in American history. He was a three-time undefeated NCAA champion for the University of Oklahoma in the 1950s, and was known as the greatest pinner of all time. His junior year, Hodge won the 177-pound NCAA title with all pins, then the national freestyle AND Greco-Roman national titles a month later, again all with pins. That’s three national championships with 14 straight pins. Dan won a silver medal in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne. He was robbed of the gold medal and the story is revealed in the book.

In 1958, Dan won the Golden Gloves heavyweight crown in New York City with a devastating knockout in the finals. He was 17-0 as an amateur boxer with 14 knockouts.

Dan is the only athlete to ever win national titles in both boxing and wrestling — and he is the only amateur wrestler to ever appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated (April 1, 1957).

Dan boxed and wrestled professionally for many years and the book is filled with stories of his amazing career and legendary strength. Many of the top pros were afraid to even get in the ring with him.

Today, the top award in all of amateur wrestling is called the Dan Hodge Trophy.

The book is loaded with terrific photos — 64 in all.

Order the book before it sells out again. It will NOT be re-pritned again. Author Mike Chapman will be happy to personally autograph any books.
