Video: Oklahoma State showcases news football practice facility

Posted by: Chris Vannini on Wednesday December 04, 2013

Oklahoma State opened up a new football practice facility this summer, and the Cowboys are making sure to sell it to recruits.

In a new video, athletic director Mike Holder describes the facility’s features and what it means to players.

“Everything you see in and around this building is the best that you could possibly have,” he said. “Our goal was to win more games, no matter what the sport, and I think this will prove to be a huge bonus for us. It’s all about our commitment to giving our athletes the very best of everything. We want them, if they come to Oklahoma State, to know they don’t have to sacrifice anything.

“We’re going to feed them the best, train them the best, the best strength and conditioning and, ultimately, trying to help them make their dreams come true. Whatever it takes, we’re willing to do it. With Coach Gundy and his coaching staff, all the great athletes we’ve attracted, I think the best days for Cowboy football are in the future, not in the past.

Recruiting is heating up, and you can be sure this video will be shown to as many prospects as possible leading up to Signing Day. It should make quite an impression.
