High Noon Highlights(2/19): Blake Jarwin fills void left by Jason Witten

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

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Blake Jarwin to be key for the Cowboys in 2019:

With Jason Witten’s retirement last season, the Cowboys were left with a hole to fill at tight end. They had some young players step up, including former Oklahoma State Cowboys back Blake Jarwin.

This from the Dallas Cowboys is a good look at what Jarwin can do next year.

Blake Jarwin had never scored a touchdown in his two-year career. Dec. 30 at the Giants, he joined Billy Joe DuPree (1973) as only the second tight end in Cowboys history with three touchdown catches in a single game. That breakout performance in the regular-season finale propelled Jarwin, a part-time 53-man roster member in 2017, to the team lead in catches among tight ends (27) in 2018. Jarwin might have the highest ceiling of any tight end on the roster from a pure receiver standpoint. The next step would appear to be improving his consistency finishing plays as a receiver and rounding out his game as a functional blocker.{Dallas Cowboys}

OSU men’s golf looks to defend Prestige:

As OSU men’s golf team looks to defend their title, they’ll be competing against a tough field. But head coach Alan Bratton thinks they have what it takes. The tournament started Tuesday morning and you can catch the action on Golfweek.com.

We like the field that is assembled and the golf course,” said Alan Bratton, Oklahoma State head coach. “It’s a good, competitive experience. I liked what our guys were exposed to last year when we came here. The Norman Course is a good test.”

From a small tournament that emphasized academics in its first year in 2000, the Prestige has grown to one of the top men’s college tournaments in the country. The tournament will take another step in its evolution this week when the second and third rounds will be live streamed on Golfweek.com.{The Desert Sun}

Golf banner to be hung on basketball senior day:

According to the Stillwater Newspress, OSU will raise a banner to the Gallagher-Iba Arena rafters for the men’s golf national championship March 9.

Legends to present lineups at OSU-Wichita State game:

Some baseball legend will be on hand when the Cowboys take on Wichita State on March 5 at Allie P. Reynolds.

Hall of fame coaches Gary Ward and Gene Stephenson will present the starting lineups prior to the Oklahoma State-Wichita State baseball game on March 5 in Stillwater as part of the celebration of the final season of Allie P. Reynolds Stadium. Both Ward and Stephenson are members of the College Baseball Hall of Fame and left their marks as the winningest coaches in Oklahoma State and Wichita State history, with each taking over head coaching duties at the respective programs in 1978. Under the two legends’ guidance, the Oklahoma State-Wichita State rivalry flourished as one of the best in college baseball during the 1980s and 1990s. Ward- and Stephenson-coached teams squared off 45 times on the diamond, with nine of those matchups coming in NCAA Regional play and two in the College World Series. {okstate.com}

That’s all for today, folks! Have a fantastic day!
