Sanders Likes What He Saw In Cowboys

Oklahoma State verbal commitment and Athens, Texas speedster Kendall Sanders confirmed he did make it to College Station last Saturday to see the Oklahoma State Cowboys come back and defeat Texas A&M 30-29.

"I thought it was a great atmosphere, and my team came out on top," said Sanders, who had scored three touchdowns the night before to run his season total to 14 TDs. "I was there as an unofficial recruit at Texas A&M. At first it seemed kind of weird but then I had some of my crowd around me."

Sanders said he was impressed with the Oklahoma State offense. Despite showing ability on both sides of the football, Sanders is committed to play wide receiver at Oklahoma State. He liked seeing 11 different Cowboys catch passes and seeing freshman Josh Stewart catch a 28-yard reception.

"That offense is really fun to watch. It looks fun to play in too," he added.

Sanders said he saw A&M commitment Matt Davis, QB from Klein (Forest), Texas, and former OSU commitment and now A&M pledge Bralon Addison, athlete from Missouri City (Hightower), Texas, along with former OSU commitment and now Tennessee pledge Dalton Santos, linebacker from Van, Texas, at the game. Sanders and Santos are friends.

"Yes sir, he just likes to go places and check out schools," said Sanders of Santos, who may lead the 2012 class in unofficial visits.

Sanders said he and his family are looking forward to Dec. 3 when they plan on coming to Stillwater to watch the Bedlam game as Oklahoma State hosts Oklahoma.

Sanders repeatedly said OSU is his team. That would be his team for the future as his team right now is Athens.

"I'm excited. This season will be better than last year. I beat the touchdown record last year and I'm really going to beat it this season," Sanders added as he felt Athens could really have a good season and playoff run.

Last week in the 28-20 loss to Palestine, Sanders scored in the first quarter to give Athens the lead on a 65-yard run. He finished with 13 carries for 110 yards, including a 10-yard scoring run in the second quarter. He had eight receptions for 137 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown pass from his younger brother Anthony in the second half.

"Yes sir, sometimes," he answered when asked if he ever got in the huddle and told his younger brother to throw it to him.

Actually, it's hard to imagine why you wouldn't want to throw it to him.
