It’s high noon...

How Oklahoma State Athletic Trainers are helping during COVID-19:

Just because OSU student athletes aren’t in Stillwater right now, doesn’t mean their work with OSU Athletics Trainers aren’t stopping working with them.

“It is an extemely busy time, the busiest time of the year typically,” Dr. Iven said. “it’s a completely different look. Both from the standpoint of how we interact in out day to day basis at practices and competition and from inside the training room from the standpoint of treatments and evaluations.”

They are not seeing OSU athletes virtually.

Phillip Redwine-Bryant still pursuing his NFL dream:

“They’re like, ‘You’re just making big moves, don’t forget about the little people,’” Redwine said. “I was like, ‘I was just like y’all literally four or five years ago, there’s no way I’d forget my people, my family.”

After finishing his final season at the Texas Bowl in December, Redwine turned his attention to the Draft, even working out at five different positions at OSU’s Pro Day last month.

“Fullback, linebacker, long snapper,” Redwine said. “Then I had to run routes, tight end routes, with my quarterback to get him looks for the pro’s.”

Redwine said one of the assistant coaches at OSU recommended he try fullback in front of the NFL scouts in Stillwater on March 10th.

But, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic forced Redwin to change the way he prepared for draft weekend. Normally, he could work out and lift weights under renowned Oklahoma State strength coach Rob Glass.

After Pro Day, though, the Stillwater campus closed down.

“I’m out there in my back yard with a bar and two buckets of sand, just trying to do squats,” Redwine said. “Just trying to make do with what I have.” {KCENTV}

Oklahoma State announced that four men’s golfers have earned spots on the academic All- Big 12 team.

Senior Ferdinand Müller, a psychology major, was joined on the first team by sophomore Rasmus Neergaard-Petersen, an economics major.
