Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up with everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics and beyond!

It’s high noon...



Oklahoma State Quarteback makes cameo on Netflix:

The latest season of “Last Chance U” has hit Netflix. When OSU fans watch the show they might recognize a name. Ethan Bullock was in the firth episode as the rival quarterback to the team the show follows.


It made for good TV, being that the series follows Laney, but it was a tough look for Bullock and City.

It would, though, be City’s last loss of the year. The Rams finished 8-3 and beat Shasta in the Golden State Bowl.

Bullock finished the season having completed 59 percent of his passes for 1,468 yards, 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also ran for another three scores.{Pistols Firing Blog}

Russell Okung brings experience of 2011 lockout to Panthers:

The former Cowboy knows what it’s like to have your season cut short. And he’s bringing the things that he learned to his new team, the Carolina Panthers.


“I know what it’s like to not have OTAs, not have minicamp, and then all of a sudden be expected to show up for camp and be ready to go,” Okung said. “I think we’ve proved that we can go out there and put a good product on the field.”

Okung was a Seahawks’ first-round pick in 2010 and was entering his second pro season when the lockout occurred. One lesson from back then is players need time to ramp up training to prevent serious ailments. The league saw an increase in Achilles and ACL injuries early in the 2011 season, which is why the NFL Players’ Association continued to push for a considerable strength and conditioning period to begin training camps this year. {Panthers.com}

Great feature on Chandler Rodgers:

This gives some great insight into the career of former Cowboy wrestler Chandler Rodgers.


About a year ago, Rogers took a job on the coaching staff at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. This location allows him to work out with the full-time wrestlers at the US Olympic Training Center, also in Colorado Springs, so he’s been getting serious Greco training for the first time. It remains to be seen what impact this will have on his style. As his college career progressed, his baseline skills improved, and he became a somewhat more orthodox wrestler. Hopefully, training with the best Greco wrestlers in the country sharpens his game without transforming it too much. Watching the sport is more fun when guys like Chandler Rogers take wacky stuff to a high level. Stay weird, Cowboy. {The Fight Site}
