OU football: The meaning behind CeeDee Lamb's No. 32 necklace

NORMAN — A silver No. 32 hangs from a chain of the same color around CeeDee Lamb’s neck. It’s one of two necklaces the Oklahoma wide receiver wears. The other is weighted by a silver cross.

Lamb’s necklaces and the symbols they bear aren’t hidden against his chest. He wants to see the No. 32 every time he looks down. During games, the pendant is tucked beneath his pads.

“I don’t go anywhere without it,” Lamb said.

Chester Ramirez Jr., Lamb’s oldest uncle on his mother’s side, wore No. 32 as a high school football player and later at the Air Force Academy.
