Sawyer Receives Offer From Cowboys

It's interesting how unofficial scholarship offers take place? Top prospects all over the country are picking up scholarship offers, but this is not a contact period and schools can't call the players directly. We spoke with standout Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal quarterback Foster Sawyer on Monday after being alerted by an All Saints parent that Sawyer found out he had an Oklahoma State offer.

Sawyer is a 6-5, 210-pound pro-style quarterback who has led All Saints to back-to-back Southwest Preparatory Conference titles and a 22-0 record the past two seasons (11-0 each season).

The 2012 season included a 31-7 win over Brownwood, a 45-23 win over Dallas St. Mark's, and a 48-7 win over Oklahoma City Casady School. Sawyer threw for 2,815 yards with 31 touchdowns and only eight interceptions in completing 162-of-263 passes (61.6 percent). As a sophomore, he threw for 2,810 yards with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Sawyer said that Oklahoma State has been one of his favorites, and he got the news at lunch on Monday.

"I found out at lunch when my coach text me and told me to come down to his office," explained Sawyer. "He told me that Oklahoma State had offered me and I was kind of in shock because they are one of my very top schools.

"He told me I should talk to Coach (Mike) Gundy and he handed me the phone. I called Coach Gundy and he told me personally, and told me that he would love for me and my family to come up any time this spring. Actually, we are planning to go up this Thursday and spend most of the day Friday (on the OSU campus)," Sawyer said.

Sawyer adds Oklahoma State to offers from Arizona State, Houston, Missouri, Mississippi, SMU, TCU, North Texas and UCLA.

He has been to some OSU games this past season and is friends with All Saints center and deep snapper Kaleb Smith, who will be a freshman on the Cowboys team this upcoming fall.

This winter he played basketball for the first time since eighth grade and they were just eliminated in the state tournament.

"I'm in offseason football now and track. Everybody (on the football team) is required to practice track, but not necessarily run in the meets," said Sawyer.

"I will also work out with my quarterback trainer, Kevin Murray (former NFL, Texas A&M, and Dallas W.T. White High School standout). I've worked with him since the summer before my sophomore season. I owe him everything in developing my game. He has made me the player that I am. There is always room for improvement, so we keep working to get better."

Sawyer is a determined and a very polished quarterback going into his senior season. He deserves the attention he is getting, which Mopnday included some more significant attention from Oklahoma State.
