Meet Our Team – Oklahoma

Derrik West 

Business Developer (Oklahoma City)

Derrik West

Derrik began playing organized football at age four.  As far back as he can remember, he dreamed of coaching the sport at The University of Oklahoma.  His dad helped prepare him, teaching him how to play every position on the field.  For more than 30 years now, Derrik has volunteered his time to coach in the OKC inner city youth league.  His teams are not recreational.  They travel about the country, playing other top squads.  Three times, Derrik has coached against Deion Sanders.  His team won two of those contests, obviously.  He says the third still eats at him.

Derrik is married to Brenda and has four kids—daughters Parker, Sophia, and Giana, and son Nico. One of his primary goals in life is to be “the absolute best father” he can be.  (He is also daddy to a bull mastiff named Hudson.)  He loves hanging out with family, playing golf and—surprise!—watching football.  His favorite teams?  The Sooners and the Green Bay Packers.  History, particularly of WW II, is another passion, and was his college major.  In a way, Derrik’s love of history and of football met up in his most memorable vacation—a visit to the NFL Hall of Fame!

Rob Crowe 

Account Manager (Oklahoma City)

Rob Crowe

Rob and his wife, Jamie, have a big, lively crew of kids and animals, starting with their eight sons—Caleb, Andre, Jordan, Zachery, Steven, Nate, James, and Christian.  Four dogs, two cats, two donkeys, a pig and 6 hens mean there are animals enough to go around, and then some.

Rob still finds time to pursue his interests.  He collects, builds, and restores cars, and just about anything else that is motorized.  Happily, despite his love of speed, he doesn’t race his cars; he saves that for his jet skis!  Football is another love.  He began playing the game when he was only four.  As a kid growing up in OKC, he naturally became devoted to the Sooners, and dreamed that one day, he’d play in the NFL.  More specifically, he dreamed of being Brian Bosworth, playing in the NFL.

Rob believes in the value of volunteering, and is teaching it to his kids.  The whole family  regularly pitches in with Rotary Council and Chamber community projects.  This aligns perfectly with one of Ron’s “bucket list” goals, which is to play a role in bettering his city.

Donnie Peak

Executive Operations Manager

Donnie PeakDonnie is a family guy who says that his wife, Candi, is his “rock” and his dearest friend. Together they have raised three sons. Quinton is in landscaping, Byron is assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of California, and Keldon, at 24, is the strength and conditioning coach for the Oklahoma women’s basketball team. Mom and Dad plainly did something right!

Like his sons, Donnie loves sports, although his favorite is football. As a sports-crazy kid growing up in southern Kansas, he played the game at every opportunity, dreaming of one day playing on Sundays. He graduated to
Saturday ball, playing running back at the college level. Afterwards, he became an enthusiastic spectator—albeit one with a lifelong commitment to working out and staying in shape. When he eventually settled with his family in the heart of Oklahoma Sooner country (OK City), he was able to cheer in person for his favorite college team.

Donnie hopes to add a parachute jump to his varied experiences, and counts a trip to Jamaica as his best vacation.

Frank Flemmons 

Account Manager (Oklahoma City)

Frank grew up in the Texas panhandle town of Perryton.  He arrived in Oklahoma to attend Southern Nazarene University.  His girlfriend, Beth, attended the same university; they  married and decided to stay in Oklahoma.  Both were athletes in high school, participating in every sport their school offered, and they still love an active, outdoors lifestyle.  Along with their two kids, Maddie and Gibson, and the dachshund, Sadie, they frequently camp at nearby state parks.  Recently, Frank also took up fishing.  It brings him so much peace that he doesn’t have to catch a thing to leave happy.   

Frank loves all college sports, particularly when the Sooners are winning.  He’d like to attend a Super Bowl one day, as well as the US Open Tennis Championships. 

A visit to relatives in New Zealand is on his agenda.  He regards those islands as the loveliest place on earth.  As for beauty closer to home, he says he is “blessed to make our little part of the world a little greener.”



Brian Hopper

Partner, Regional Manager

Brian HopperAs husbands and fathers go, Brian is first-rate.  He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Stephanie, for 23 years now.  Their children are Caleb, 17, Claire, 15, and Patrick, 12.  Charlie is the family’s canine member.  Hanging out with this crew is Brian’s favorite activity. He and Stephanie both grew up in the Oklahoma City area and are surrounded here with friends and extended family.  Brian’s first job as a kid was mowing yards with his brothers.  If the yard had a pool, and its owners furthermore allowed the boys to plunge in at their labor’s end, the owners got a discount. 

Brian’s love for the hometown people and its quality of life has led to volunteerism.  He serves on the United Way of Norman finance council, teaches 4th graders on Sunday at his church, and is a church elder.  He also cheers for the local university, Oklahoma, which is his alma mater.  His NFL loyalty lies farther afield with the Buffalo Bills.
