Among Alaska's 420,000 residents, the Randall family ranks as pioneers. They lived here before the pipeline was built, arriving during the 1960s, the first full decade of statehood. Roy Randall, a quiet native Texan, was a halfback at Oklahoma when another Sooner halfback, Billy Vessels, won the Heisman Trophy in 1952. After college, Randall tried living several places before settling in Alaska in 1961 to hunt and trap for a living. He came to Seal Bay in '64 and married Shannon in '68.
