Former Oklahoma State running back and NFL Hall of Famer Barry Sanders was selected for the 2015 PwC Doak Walker Legends Award.

This award recognizes former collegiate running backs who have made an impact in their communities. Scott Moore, PwC North Texas managing partner had this to say about Sanders.

"Barry Sanders' NCAA single-season rushing record may be one of the greatest college accomplishments of our day and his NFL career was just as prolific," Scott Moore said. "We honor Barry, not only as a phenomenal athlete, but also as an individual who believes in the importance of education and providing opportunities to underprivileged children."
