“High” Noon Highlights (4/20): Cowboys take first steps toward professional basketball

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

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Tournament-Oklahoma State vs Iowa State Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Cowboys headed to the pros:

After a career that was filled with highs and lows, Thomas Dziagwa, Lindy Waters and Cam McGriff are ready for the next chapter in their lives. They have all signed with sports agencies,

“I think they’ve all settled on really good people specific to their needs and what they’re going to try to accomplish,” OSU coach Mike Boynton said. “I think they’re all going to do well.”

“I don’t know about the others, but for me, the NBA being in the situation it’s in right now, I feel like that process is really affected right now,” McGriff said. “I don’t really know where I will choose to play, whether it is overseas or it’s here in the States in the NBA or the G-League. I just really don’t know what my future holds for me.” {The Oklahoman}

The story of an Oklahoma State super fan:

This is a fun story about Ryan Hill, an OSU fan that has built a character that has become somewhat of a staple at OSU sporting events.

“When I started doing this back in the fall of 2009,” Hill said, “I never really thought that I was putting out a brand or anything”.

The first OSU sporting event that Ryan Hill attended was over a decade ago, when No. 9 OSU played No. 13 Georgia in a high-profile football showdown. Hill remembers the game well.

“We were playing against Georgia and they were having the rededication to Boone Pickens Stadium.” Hill said.

That game took place well before Hill started coming to games dressed as a superhero. In fact, the only thing distinguishing Hill from an ordinary fan was his signature hat.

“Back then I didn’t wear what I wear today, which is all orange”, Hill said. “Back then it was just regular shoes, pants but I still had an orange shirt on and my infamous hat.” {O’Colly}
