NORMAN —

“She’s watched so many football games,” he said, “she knows as much about football as I do.”

Though he made his name as the winningest football coach in one high school’s history and one university’s history and, as an administrator, built facilities that remain busy and well-used today, he came back to his hometown in 1986, 40 years after he left it.

“I think Norman’s a great town,” Jensen said. “It’s not quite like it was, but it’s a good town.”

Track him down and you’ll find a good story to go with it.
