High Noon Highlights (11/4): A special moment between Spencer Sanders and a young fan

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

It’s high noon...


Spencer Sanders shares a moment with young OSU fan:

Oklahoma State fan Curtis Sage is a 10-year-old who got to go his first OSU game on Saturday when the Cowboys played TCU in Boone Pickens. Him and his dad got to the stadium early while Curtis just hoped a player would notice him. He got much more than that. A chance to play catch with quarterback Spencer Sanders.

“Hi, Curtis,” Sanders said, “it’s nice to meet you. I’m Spencer. Want to throw the ball?”

The answer was obvious.

The two tossed the football back and forth. Curtis in the stands. Sanders on the sideline.

“I actually caught it pretty well,” Curtis said. “I caught the football every time.” {The Oklahoman}

Oklahoma State defense playing with a swagger:

Jim Knowles and his team were key contributors on Saturday. As they were the Saturday before that.Knowles told the media what’s changed about his group.

Dare we say, the Cowboys on defense are starting to show some swagger, the question was asked to both makeshift defensive play caller Mike Gundy and the defensive coordinator Jim Knowles after the 34-27 win over TCU.

”You have to have swagger on defense, otherwise, just by the nature of the term then you are reacting to what the offense does,” Knowles told the media in the team room after the game. “When you are playing with that attitude and that swagger then you are making plays. It’s a big momentum boost to see all the people who are really reserved get into it I think really helps the whole defense.” {}

Dillon Stoner steps up in absence of Tylan Wallace:

When news broke that Tylan Wallace would be out for the season, it was time for next man up. Dillon Stoner did his best to be that man against the Horned Frogs.

“You’ve always got to be ready to play,” Dillon Stoner said. “I hate that for Tylan, I would change places with him in a heartbeat, really, but I knew it was my opportunity and I just watched his film as much as I could to try and learn as much as I could in a short amount of time and I was able to make a few plays today.” {Oklahoma State Maven}
