Former member of Mafia to speak to Sooners

Updated:
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ A former powerful member of the New York Mafia will speak to athletes at Oklahoma.

Michael Franzese will talk about the dangers of organized gambling and other targets.

He was once considered the most financially powerful member of the New York Mafia and was the primary target of a 14-agency government task force.

Franzese has since written two books and travels the country to talk with athletes and corporations about gambling, fraud and other issues.

The speech to the OU players is not open to the public.
