STILLWATER, Okla. – With 32 seconds left on the clock, Oklahoma State’s hopes of a win against KSU relied on the ability of their kicker, Ben Grogan.
Grogan’s kick went through the uprights, putting the Pokes on top of Kansas State 36-34.
In back-to-back weeks, Grogan has pulled off a win for the Cowboys and has become a hometown hero for many OSU fans.
However, it seems Grogan’s latest game-winning kick has earned him the respect of an unexpected fan.
On Friday, Grogan posted a photo of a letter he received from Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder.
“Congratulations Ben. I admire the courage you displayed in hitting the game winning FG. That took great focus & discipline on your part. Wishing you continued success,” the letter, signed by Coach Snyder, read.
OSU will take on West Virginia on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. in Morgantown.
