Players, coaches show off during Cotton Bowl luncheon
GRAPEVINE, Texas- While many football fans are counting down the hours until they can watch their favorite teams take the field, players and coaches from OSU and Missouri met for a luncheon Thursday afternoon.
They learned a little about the historic games that have been played in the classic bowl.
A pair of players were recognized for their academic achievements.
Caleb Lavey, from Oklahoma State, and Matt Hoch, from Missouri, were honored with the Dan S. Petty Scholar-Athlete Award.
Quarterbacks Clint Chelf and James Franklin had their time in the spotlight.
Both quarterbacks got to show off their skills by throwing the door prizes to the winners, a tradition at the Bug Play Luncheon.
Brad Sham, with the Cotton Bowl, even took a jab at Johnny Manziel’s attempt last year.
Sham said, “He was like Johnny ‘I’ve never seen a football.’ He practically blew up a table. “
