Football season is creeping closer, and even though it seems like an eternity between now and the Cowboys Classic kickoff in about a month, it will be here before we know it. Signs of life are already returning to Stillwater as students start trickling back in, and the Cowboys first practice of the season is tomorrow.
Another sure sign football is near is Fan Appreciation Day. The event, presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors, is this Saturday! Bring the little ones out to meet Pistol Pete, say hi to Coach Gundy, and get an autograph from their favorite player! Go Pokes!
"The doors of Gallagher-Iba Arena will open at 1 p.m. with the event starting at 2 p.m. and concluding at 4 p.m. OSU football coaches and student-athletes will be available for autographs throughout the concourse level of the arena. Complimentary water will be provided by Academy. Also sprinkled throughout the facility providing entertainment will be members of the OSU spirit squad, Pistol Pete and other special guests."
