It had been five years since Daxx Garman played in a competitive football game, until he filled in for an injured J.W. Walsh in OSU's win over Missouri State.
Garman finished the Cowboy win passing 16 for 26, for 244 yards and two touchdowns.
With our report that J.W. Walsh underwent surgery and will be out 6-8 weeks, Garman will finally get a chance to run an offense again in his redshirt junior year.
Oklahoma State's game Saturday, September 13, versus U.T. San Antonio should be Garman's first start as a Cowboy.
The Missouri State game was Garman's first game action since his junior year of high school, in 2009, at Jones High School outside Oklahoma City.
After his junior year at Jones, he attempted to transfer to South Lake Carroll High School, a powerhouse in suburban Dallas, but was eventually ruled ineligible and had to sit out his senior year of high school.
He then went to the University of Arizona to play football in 2011, where he redshirted his first year.
In 2012, Garman left Arizona for Oklahoma State, but sat out the year due to NCAA transfer rules.
Last season, Garman played backup to Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh.
