Oklahoma center Gabe Ikard isn't a typical offensive lineman, working on his craft in anonymity.
Gregarious and funny, Ikard has overcome his often-obscure playing position to become the face of the Sooners - a spot usually reserved for a quarterback, running back or other star player.
The senior from Oklahoma City was front-and-center this week for No. 22 Oklahoma (7-2, 4-2 Big 12 Conference) as they prepare for their home finale on Saturday against Iowa State (1-8, 0-6).
Ikard says he takes pride in the way he's represented himself, his family and the university.
