The Path to Norman

Owen Heinecke went to school at Bishop Kelley in Tulsa. The young man starred on both the football team and lacrosse. Heinecke was player of the year for District 5A-3 in 2020 on a Bishop Kelley team that was state runner-up. However, his lacrosse skills were his first path in college; the young man joined Ohio State for his first year in college and played in three games with the lacrosse team. After one season, he walked on with the Sooners football team.


This Season

A walk-on at defensive back, Heinecke will have a season to grow in his first year on a college football team and work toward playing time during his tenure in Norman.
