It’s high noon...

Top NFL picks of the Mike Gundy Era:

The O’Colly did a fantastic breakdown of the Top-10 draft picks of the Mike Gundy Era.

The draft is always an exciting time to see which college stars end up where. And on that note, we take a look back at the best NFL players to come out of Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy’s program.

As we go through this list, keep in mind some of these picks are based on a projection of how players are expected to produce — not solely based on how they have produced to this point. {O’Colly}

Cowgirl Softball signs transfer:

Jordan Doggett will become a cowgirl after transferring to OSU from Georgia.

A versatile player who can start in the infield and the outfield, Doggett slashed an impressive .360/.448/.560 in the shortened 2020 season. She finished the season with two home runs, three triples, 18 runs batted in and 11 walks. ”I’m so excited to be able to finish my last year with this program and the Cowgirls,” Doggett said. Doggett becomes the second Georgia transfer head coach Kenny Gajewski has landed in as many years. Alysen Febrey, who posted a monster season in 2020 after transferring from Georgia, spoke highly of Doggett and calls her one of her best friends.{Okstate.com}

Vivian Gray is the perfect storm:

Women’s Basketball SID Ryan Cameron wrote a fantastic article on Vivian Gray for Posse Magazine.

“I have coached some All-Americans, and Vivian is ahead of the rest of them by far,” Townsend said.

What puts Gray in such elite company? The rare combination of ability, work ethic and basketball IQ.

“What I love about Vivian is her dedication, commitment and love for the game. That is why she works at it so hard. You can push her as far as you want to because she wants to be as good as she can be,” Townsend said. “She was fun to coach because she is coachable. She listens to what you say. She wants to be coached, and she wants to be a better player.”

“She is a coach’s dream.”

Gray had a hand in a third of Townsend’s championship total, helping Argyle (Texas) High School to a three-year mark of 108-8 and three consecutive titles after a runner-up finish her freshman season.

After cutting down the nets on championship Saturday, Townsend would give his squad the following Monday off, and each time Gray could be found in the gym playing with the boys’ team.

“She loves to play basketball. She is going to give it everything she has, and she has a lot to give. She has earned everything she has and earned it because she spent the time developing it,” Townsend said. {okstate.com}
