Robert Dale Fenimore (born October 6, 1925 in Woodward, Oklahoma) known as the "Blond Bomber" was a halfback for the Oklahoma A&M football team from 1943-1946. He was the first two-time All America selection from Oklahoma A&M and finished third in the Heisman voting in 1945, but still led the nation in rushing with 142 carries for 1,048 yards. As a player, he set many school records, including the career interception mark of 18 which still stands at Oklahoma State today. He led the nation in total offense in 1944 and in total offense and rushing in 1945 when he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting behind Army's Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard. The Aggies were 8-1 in 1944 and 9-0 in 1945--the only unbeaten/untied season in Oklahoma A&M/State football history.

Due to injuries, Fenimore played sparingly in the 1946 season and despite the risk, the Chicago Bears made Fenimore the first pick overall in the 1947 NFL Draft. He would play only the 1947 season in Chicago appearing in 10 games.

In 1972 Fenimore was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. In 2007, Fenimore was inducted into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame.
