Applegate Impressed with K-State
Mill Valley's Evan Applegate made the trip to Manhattan on Saturday to get his first look at Kansas State. The Shawnee, KS product saw the Wildcats play host to twelfth ranked Baylor. Despite falling short against the Bears, the 2015 offensive tackle liked what he saw from the Wildcats. "It was good," Applegate said of his visit. "The game was really good, and they played really well. You do get that family feel that they talk about all the time. I really enjoyed it." The 6-foot-7, 280-pound tackle only got a few moments with the Kansas State coaching staff. Offensive line coach Charlie Dickey did make a point to talk to the Jaguars standout. "I talked to the O-line coach when they came through and shook all of the kids hands," he said of the Wildcats assistant. "That was only like five seconds. That's really the only time I saw him." Applegate and his family got a firsthand look at the new additions to Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Like many other visitors this season, they raved about the improvements. "We saw the whole new part of the stadium," he said, nodding. "We got to eat at the new training table, and the food was great. What impressed me most about the new part was just how nice everything looked. They had gas fire pits on the outside. They just cut no corners." With a crowd of over 52,000, the Mill Valley junior saw Wildcat Nation in full voice as they tried to disrupt Baylor's explosive offense. The intensity from the fans was something Applegate won't soon forget. "It was great," he said of the gameday environment. "We were on the sidelines during warm-ups. The student section was already full and doing all the chants. It was a sellout game, so it was loud the whole time."
