December 19, 2022 – Indoor Football League (IFL) – Tulsa Oilers News Release
Tulsa, Okla. – Tulsa Oilers Football, proud member of the IFL, announced on Monday the addition of Big 12 running back Tre King, out of Texas Tech.
King (25) became one of Texas Tech’s top rushing producers when joining the Red Raiders his junior season. The new weapon played in all 13 games his junior year and finished second on the team with 623 yards on the ground and five touchdowns. With 131 carries, the 6’0, 200 lbs running back averaged 4.8 yards per carry in his inaugural Big 12 season, all while collecting 104 yards through the air for 727 all-purpose yards on the campaign.
