The Rise of Daxx
The Rise of Daxx

Three transfers, numerous headlines, and (nearly) five years ago, Daxx Garman threw his last pass in a game as the starting quarterback for Jones High School.  From Jones High School, to Southlake Carroll, to the University of Arizona, to Stillwater; the back of Garman's playing card reads like a Lonely Planet brochure. Buried on the Oklahoma State depth chart since his eligibility began in 2013, Daxx has managed to insert himself squarely into the 2014 quarterback conversation.  Should he be handed the reigns at some point this season, Daxx's story will undoubtedly make headlines once again.  In preparation of the Rise of Daxx, the following list chronicles but a few noteworthy events occurring since Daxx's last meaningful completion.  Prepare yourself for a trip down memory lane...
