It’s high noon...

Christmas morning comes early for OSU Baseball:

After a long wait...Oklahoma State Athletics finally got to debut their newest add, O’Brate Stadium.

“That was an incredible way to kind of change the direction and change the energy for them that now they have something they can really look forward to every single day again,” Holliday said. “I think it was a perfect way to completely turn the energy back into that forward thinking mindset.

“That excitement level was there. It was Christmas morning, probably times 10.”

OSU athletic director Mike Holder developed the plan. He helped arrange O’Brate’s trip from Kansas alongside his wife, Frances.

Inside the new stadium for the first time, OSU players watched Frances cut an orange ribbon inside the new clubhouse. Cecil threw out a ceremonial first pitch, too.{Oklahoman}

Brennan Presley earns high praise:

Newcomer out of Bixby Brennan Presley has impressed football head coach Mike Gundy over fall camp. Presley could be a breakout star for the Cowboys in multiple positions in 2020.

Anthony ready to share senior season with brother:

Chandler Anthony will be sharing the football field with his younger brother Hunter. Something that Hunter didn’t think would actually happen.

Hunter wanted his brother to come to Stillwater and help add some depth to the thinning Cowboy front.

“At first, I didn’t think it was a serious request,” said Chandler, who will officially become a Cowboy this week, joining the program as a graduate transfer. “As soon as I found out he was serious, I decided it would be pretty cool to come back. I guess a lot of people can’t stay away for long. The bug bites you and it’s hard to let it go.”{Oklahoman}
