Big 12 Preseason Football Awards – OSU Sports Report

Jordan King - July 10, 2019 2:39 pm

This is the July 10th OkState Sports Report

Football

If you missed the news to break yesterday afternoon— the Big 12 office has announced the 2019 preseason conference football teams and awards.

The always controversial Sam Ehlinger from Texas has been named the preseason Offensive player of the year. The newcomer of the year was perhaps more expected with it going to Jalen Hurts – the Alabama transfer quarterback to Oklahoma.  The defensive award went to Kenneth Murray, the talented linebacker from OU.

As for Cowboys – running back Chuba Hubbard was picked as one of the three running backs as preseason favorites. No shock that Biletnikoff finalist Tylan Wallace was selected as one of the three wideout picks.

On defense, cornerback AJ Green was picked. Green is certainly expected to be a big part of what is hoped to be an improved year on that side of the ball for the Pokes.

A reminder that the Pokes will send coach Green, Wallace, Philip Redwine Bryant and Johnny Wilson in addition to coach Mike Gundy to media days.

John Deere Classic Golf

Yes, we’re still a day away from the start of the John Deere classic this week and the field is a little less star struck than others on the tour, but a few Pokes have already made headlines.

Viktor Hovland has played fewer than five PGA tour events, but already finds himself at the top of the odds-makers list.

He is the favorite per the opening odds released according to golf digest at 18/1.  Matthew Wolff has the fifth best odds at 25/1 just behind Collin Morikawa, Joaquin Niemann and Sungjae Im. Wolff coming off that win at the 3M open has the same odds as Charles Howell III.
