Billy Sims, the pride of Hooks, Texas, has apologized for his cheering stunt at Saturday's Heisman Trophy ceremony.
Sims shouted "Boomer" 11 times from the stage after Sam Bradford was announced as the Heisman winner.
"I hear I've been getting some bad press, that I say 'Boomer Sooner' too much," Sims said. "In no way did I mean to upstage Sam's night. I love Oklahoma so much, and I try to be a spokesman for the university. I will never, ever stop saying 'Boomer.'
"But I apologize to the Bradford family and the Heisman Trust if I crossed a boundary. Sam's dad, Kent, was a teammate of mine and was part of my Heisman season. That's why I was so happy for Sam."
