It’s high noon...

Mike Gundy shares personal experiences with T.Boone Pickens:

Wednesday in Gallagher Iba Arena, the Oklahoma State community gathered to remember T. Boone Pickens, the Oklahoma State mega donor. Mike Gundy was one of the speakers at the event and spoke of his encounters with Mr.Pickens.

How Chuba Hubbard went from track to football:

Mark Cooper of the Score wrote on the move from track athlete in Canada to dynamic running back in American football.

“Ever since I played football, I’ve just kind of been known as a track guy,” Hubbard said. “Everyone just kind of pictures me as a guy who puts on a jet sweep or something like that.”

That perception might have once been justified. Before Hubbard arrived at Oklahoma State, his accolades as a three-time Canadian age-group champion in the 100m dash outweighed his football accomplishments. Track is Hubbard’s second love; he focuses solely on the gridiron these days, but he accepted an invitation to join the school’s track and field team as a freshman. {The Score}

Interview with Emmanuel Ogbah:

The Stillwater Newpress caught up with former Cowboy and current Kansas City Chief Emmanuel Ogbah.

“It was definitely exciting for me to get that opportunity,” Ogbah said recently in an exclusive phone interview with The News Press. “I’m just blessed, and happy to get to be a part of this organization moving forward.”

Ogbah’s best season to date was his rookie campaign in Cleveland, in which he had 5.5 sacks and 53 tackles – though he was used more as a linebacker by the Browns. His sophomore season, in which he was moved back to defensive end, was trending toward being even better than his first until an ankle injury brought an end to his year after 10 games – finishing with four sacks, 29 tackles and six pass deflections before missing the final six games of the season. {NewsPress}
