This Cowboy and Sooner have a special bond!

Tyler Zander, Stillwater, and Teresa Keever, Edmond, are examples of Oklahomans divided by Bedlam yet united through blood donation.  It took 97 blood donors to save Tyler’s life in 2010 when he was in a grain elevator accident that severed his leg and left him battling for life for four months.  Even that didn’t slow down his lifelong dream to attend OSU where he is a senior. Recently, he met Teresa, one of those who saved his life, and learned she is an avid Sooner. “On the field, we may be different – Cowboy and Sooner – but we’re all Oklahomans,” Tyler said.  Teresa agreed.  “When I donate, I don’t bleed crimson or orange. I bleed love.”
