It’s high noon...

Tre Flowers and Blake Jarwin swap jerseys following NFL Wild Card Game:

It’s always fun to see former teammates meet up to play each other in the NFL. When the Seahawks and Cowboys met on Saturday, Oklahoma State was well represented with Blake Jarwin, Tre Flowers and Chris Carson all playing in the game. After the game Jarwin and Flowers met up and signed and swapped their jerseys.

Aggressive play didn’t come easy for Plainview’s Eli Russ:

Scott Wright of The Oklahoma came out with a fantastic story about Oklahoma State offensive line recruit Eli Russ. He’s learned a lot and has gone from having to learn how to be aggressive to being named All-State.

Russ averaged 10 pancake blocks per game during his junior season to lead the way for an offense that averaged 380 yards and made the Class 3A state quarterfinals — all of which earned the powerful blocker a first-team spot on The Oklahoman’s All-State team.

But when he came into high school, an inch or two shorter, and 35 pounds lighter, he wasn’t naturally aggressive on the football field.

“Freshman year came around, and I got to learn from the older guys. They taught me how to do it,” Russ said with a laugh. “Sometimes they taught me the hard way.”

He already had the body and athletic gifts to be overpowering, and once the aggressive nature took hold within him, Russ became one of the state’s best offensive linemen.{The Oklahoman}
