NORMAN — Don Werner isn’t the biggest college football fan around.
“Oh, somewhat,” he said when asked if he follows the sport. “Now, you don’t want me to tell you which team I follow.”
When Werner does follow college football, it’s usually Kansas State, which is about an hour and a half drive from his shop, Werner Wagon Works, in Horton, Kansas.
But this season, there’s no team he’ll be following any closer than OU. Werner and his company built the latest edition of the Sooner Schooner, which he delivered this week to the farm in Oklahoma where the ponies that power the Schooner — Boomer and Sooner — are kept.
