It’s high noon...

Viktor Hovland has not forgotten where he came from:

Despite the recent success on the PGA Tour, Viktor Hovland had not let the success get to his head. He still remains in the city where he went to college, which I think says it all. There was a fantastic feature on Hovy in the latest issue of Global Golf Post.

His college coach Alan Bratton says that he saw something in him since he was a boy.

“As a boy, I saw a true competitor, super-confident in himself and who thrived under pressure,” Bratton said. “ In college, I saw a player that would continue to improve, who could be a Ryder Cupper and contend in big tournaments. To do it so quickly, though? I might not have predicted that.” {Global Golf Post}

Baseball schedule announced:

Yesterday Oklahoma State fans finally got some more answeres when it comes to the 2021 baseball season.

O’Brate Stadium will host 33 games this spring, including nonconference games against powerhouse Vanderbilt (March 12-14), Illinois State, Missouri State, Grand Canyon, Central Arkansas, Oral Roberts and New Orleans.{The Oklahoman}

Oklahoma State Football players that could have a breakout year 2:

Kyle Boone over at Pistols Firing Blog wrote about 5 different players who could have a breakout year in 2021. This is so interesting to think about.

Mason Rudolph, Tylan Wallace and Emmanuel Ogbah all have one thing in common: They all made star turns in their second year at Oklahoma State.

For Rudolph, that was starting as a sophomore after a steady rise to end his freshman season, culminating with Bedlam and Cactus Bowl wins. For Wallace, it was stepping into the spotlight post-James Washington after playing sparingly in Year One. And for Ogbah, that was coming off a redshirt freshman season to tie for the team lead in sacks. {PFB}
