Doug Trice was that person who in everything he did he considered others

more important than himself. I knew him first as a teammate at OCE when we played together in 1970-73. Doug was a special player on the field, a player who won numerous games for us with his great ability but he was also someone who never put himself above our team. He was selfless, He had a servants heart.

A few years ago Doug and I reconnected and He was always first to call to find out how my family was doing. We enjoyed hearing about his life after college as well.

I am not surprised at the life of service through special olympics and community service Doug lived. like I said earlier Doug always cared about others more than himself.

We will miss you Doug Trice, God bless your family in your absence.


Doug and I had just gotten reconnected after all these years. We only overlapped at "old" OCE one year, but it was such a great time. And when we did reconnect, it was as if we had seen each other the day before. He looked great when a few of the old team had a Zoom call and everyone was excited about the upcoming golf outing. Such a shock and such an immense loss to a community. He led such a great life.

The minute Doug came on campus for fall football in 1970, he impacted all of us with a direct, but very cordial approach. He would go on to inspire and amaze us with his athleticism, his inter-drive to succeed, and the ability to play every game in his career. By far though, his performance against Linfield in 1971 when he ran a kickoff back and scored from scrimmage to lead us to victory was the highlight of playing college football for me. I've considered Doug Trice a friend, a leader, and someone to boast about because we shared time together on the football field at OCE. I will miss Doug.
