Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace lead the nation in respective categories
The Athletic has two great articles involving Oklahoma State athletics. The first one is from Matt Fortuna and he has high praise for running back Chuba Hubbard and wide receiver Tylan Wallace.
Welcome to this latest version of Oklahoma State’s offense, which looks a lot like so many other Cowboys offenses of recent history. Yeah, there is a new coordinator in 34-year-old Sean Gleeson, who came over from Princeton. And there is a new running back in Chuba Hubbard, who is racing up the Big 12 leaderboards in much the same manner that predecessor Justice Hill did in the previous three years. But everything else is business as usual in Stillwater.
In Wallace and Hubbard, Oklahoma State boasts the nation’s leaders in rushing yards (521), rushing touchdowns (seven), receiving yards (390) and receiving touchdowns (six). Each player received a third-place vote in The Athletic’s Heisman straw poll. The Athletic
Mason Rudolph is a “stud”
The next one is an in depth story on Mason Rudolph detailing his journey from high school to the NFL. If you don’t have an Athletic subscription, I recommend you use the free trial to give this a read.
Rudolph had a lot to live up to. Justin Worley, the Northwestern High School quarterback who did face Clowney, defeated him his senior year. Worley was named Gatorade’s national player of the year, the first ever from South Carolina. At every level, from Northwestern to the NFL, Rudolph has had to wait his turn. He first filled Worley-sized shoes, then climbed from third on the depth chart at Oklahoma State, and now has a chance to do the same, to prove himself again, as the Steelers’ starting quarterback.
“I’m excited to step up,” Rudolph said Tuesday. “That’s what backups do. That’s what I’ve done my entire career, whether it be high school, college or now.” The Athletic
