Larry Stone Awards

Larry Stone in his Eastern football uniform. The late Larry Stone of Jay, Oklahoma was a football and baseball player at Eastern in the early 1960s who went on to a highly successful baseball career at Northeastern State College. Sadly, Marine Lieutenant Stone died in combat while on patrol in Vietnam.

Larry Stone was known for his unselfish attitude and commitment to his team. It was this lasting impression that prompted a group of his former teammates, classmates and friends to honor his legacy by presenting the annual Larry Stone Award beginning in 1968. Each year, a male and female student-athlete is selected for this honor based on overall contribution to the spirit of athletics, teamwork, determination, unselfishness and citizenship. 

The Larry Stone Memorial Scholarship is awarded to Eastern’s outstanding freshman student-athlete who plans to return to Eastern for his or her sophomore year. Scholarship recipients are selected based on academics, leadership and sportsmanship. If you are interested in making a contribution to support the Larry Stone Memorial Scholarship fund, please contact the Eastern Development Foundation at 918-465-1761.
