Round 1 / Match 7: #12 Josh Holliday vs. #21 Keiton Page
Former OSU ball player, and current head baseball coach, Josh Holliday, finds him self in this tournament for both his efforts on the field, and as a manager. We all remember his latest run as coach of the Cowboys. This past year was the first time OSU has been to the College World Series since Holliday was playing on the team 19 years before.
On the diamond, Holliday is near the top of the OSU record list for many offensive categories, including home runs, walks, hits, doubles and hit-by-pitches.
We were one win away the College World Series finals, and it looks like the baseball program is back on track to where Josh’s father, Tom, had it in the past.
Keiton Page epitomizes what it is to be a Cowboy. Strong work ethic, grit, loyalty; Page showed all of these traits during his 4 years at Oklahoma State. As a fan favorite, you could notice GIA getting rowdy whenever Page was hot from deep. Page hit 299 three pointers while at OSU.
This small town kid from Pawnee, Oklahoma, really had a huge heart, and he will forever be remembered as one of the most storied basketball players in Oklahoma State history.
