High Noon Highlights(8/28): Vincent Taylor has a talent for blocking field goals and questions about the Oklahoma State golf team

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Vincent Taylor is a field goal blocking machine:

Former Oklahoma State defensive tackle Vincent Taylor continues to make big plays for the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins Wire wrote a great piece about his uncanny ability to get his hands on the football during field goals.

Taylor talked about his field goal block in the Dolphins’ game against the Ravens:

“I had two last year,” Taylor said after the game. “I had one against (Justin) Tucker last year and to go out there and get it again. That’s one of my goals, to block the kick. Every chance to get, I just go out there and make it happen. (Davon) Godchaux gave me a good push so shout-out to him.”

You can see the video of the block here:

We all know that Taylor had his far share of blocked kicks at Oklahoma State, but it’s awesome to see that he’s continuing to do his thing in NFL.

Questions hang over Cowboy men’s golf:

Golf Digest writer Ryan Herrington wrote a fantastic piece about college golf’s Coaches Poll coming out . He details how he didn’t expect anything less than Oklahoma State at No.1 on the list. But his curiosity lied in how many votes they received.

No, what I’d been waiting on for months was to see about that little number in parenthesis next to Oklahoma State. Or more specifically to see how big that little number was. Or even more specifically to see if any other school on the list had a little number next to its name as well. Sure enough, the Cowboys had lassoed all the little numbers, the 19 next to the school’s name indicating they were the choice to start the coming season, OSU’s first tournament coming this Friday at Pebble Beach when the team competes in the Carmel Cup.

He then goes through the dilemma facing college golf, should Oklahoma State not place in first in their first few tournaments, what do voters do? Do they Place their faith in someone else?

How the Raiders trading Ryan Switzer could benefit Marcell Ateman:

Just Blog Baby, the Fansided blog for the Oakland Raiders, wrote a piece on the Ryan Switzer trade and it could help Marcell Ateman make the roster.

Ateman has done nothing but impress this summer, and with his size, he should be a formidable red zone threat in year one. The wide receiver group is starting to take shape, and with only one preseason game remaining, the time is coming to an end to make the final impression on the coaching staff.

That’s all for today folks!
