Stillwater Sports Minute: Cowboys to celebrate seniors on Saturday



As for senior defensive end Cooper Bassett, Saturda will cap a dream for the native of Tuttle - growing up a Cowboy fan in Oklahoma.

"It's going to be a really special day for me. I grew up an Oklahoma State fan and it means a lot," Bassett said. "I was talking about it with my family last week and how this could be the last time they come to Stillwater for a game for a really long time and it just kind of sunk in then.

"I just want to enjoy every second of it and soak everything in. I am going to stay focused on the game and try not to let my emotions get the best of me until afterwards. I am sure after the game I will take a moment to let all those emotions soak in and hit me then but before the game we are going to try to just maintain focus on beating Texas Tech."
