The managers of the OIL's AFC compete for the Killman Memorial Trophy. After each season, the champion's name is engraved into the trophy and he keeps it in trust until a new champion is crowned. The trophy is named for former OklahomIraqi Joseph Killman.
The AFC trophy was manufactured by Sculpture Alley in March 2014. It is awarded to the AFC champion each December after week 16's Thunder Bowl.
Like the Lawson and the Landrum, each year the champion has his name engraved on the trophy. He keeps the trophy in trust for one year, until there is a new champion.
In December 2014, Jimmy Venable became the first manager to win the Killman. In 2015, he became the first OIL manager to win two consecutive championships.
The Killman Memorial Trophy (or "the Killman") is named after an OklahomIraqi we all knew. Joseph "Jody" Killman was with the 158 during the 2006 mission that began the OIL tradition.
He died in 2013, and this trophy serves to honor his memory. Remember Killman; remember your buddies.
