It’s high noon....

Donnie Walton wins gold glove:

Walton was the Travs primary shortstop in 2019 playing in 103 regular season games, totaling over 900 innings at the position and committing just four errors in 381 total chances for a .990 fielding percentage. He also made 19 starts at second base and was pegged with just two defensive mistakes. After the conclusion of the Travelers season, Walton was called up to Seattle and made his Major League debut on September 10. He played 47 defensive innings, 37 at shortstop and did not make an error with the Mariners. {}

Shane Illingworth’s journey from Cowboy to Cowboy:

Into this real-life western steps Shane Illingworth. He’s one of the few in town who doesn’t own a horse — he’d be too tall for most equines anyway — so he isn’t exactly a cowboy.

But he is a Cowboy.

Illingworth is the big-time quarterback recruit who has verbally committed to Oklahoma State. Being from SoCal and looking like a surfer — sandy blond hair and tattoos blanketing his left arm — some might wonder how the California kid ended up in Oklahoma. Sure, the offense fits his field-stretching abilities, but he comes from a place that isn’t all that different than Stillwater. {The Oklahoman}
