Oklahoma City, OK – Every year, the March of Dimes honors outstanding Oklahoma athletes, coaches and sports figures in our state at the Oklahoma Sports Headliner Banquet. Saturday night, they honored our late friend and beloved colleague Bob Barry, Junior.
In the past, Bobby was a regular at the event serving as the MC and even handing out awards. The March of Dimes presented his wife, Gina, and the Barry family with the Bob Hersom Sports Reporting Award. The award is given to a journalist who has made outstanding contributions in their field. Just like Bob Hersom, a long time sports writer for the Daily Oklahoman, no one loved Oklahoma Sports more than these two men.
Gina said she and her family are very honored to accept the award on Bobby’s behalf.
