Gundy Talks Successful Day Coaches vs. Cancer

Mike Gundy sat down to do a radio interview at the Oklahoma State Coaches vs. Cancer Cowboy Classic. It was a record setting day with $94,125 raised for a great cause and the fight against cancer.

The Voice of the Cowboys Dave Hunziker could not have had a bigger smile as Hunziker, Kendria Cost of OSU Coaches vs. Cancer and all of the volunteers and the youngsters that inspire us all with their fight against the deadly disease had a record breaking day at the Stillwater Country Club for the annual OSU Coaches vs. Cancer Cowboy Classic Golf Tournament. The final tally of money raised was a record $94,125 and it was off to a tremendous start as the celebrity auction allowing groups to bid on which former Cowboys and Cowgirls, current and former coaches, and other celebrities they would have playing with their foursomes raised $34,750. The first two celebrities (golfers) in former Cowboy and current PGA Tour sensation Morgan Hoffman and Cowgirls golf coach Courtney Jones went for $6,000 each.

Other celebrities included Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy, who because of a recent arthroscopic shoulder surgery was coaching only so one of his former players Billy Bajema teamed with him. Bajema played tight end for Gundy, who recruited him and then Bajema went on to an NFL career that included a Super Bowl win with the Baltimore Ravens. New basketball head coach Mike Boynton was there with his wife, who he says is the better golfer. Former basketball standout Joey Graham, baseball major leaguer Mickey Tettleton, Cowboy quarterback Clint Chelf, Cowboy three point shooter Keiton Page, and former baseball head coach and dad of current Cowboys baseball coach Tom Holliday were all there to have fun and raise money for the great cause.

One of the Coaches vs. Cancer kids, Luke, was a star as he had the art design for the tournament t-shirt and also had designs drawn on the Titleist ProV1 golf balls that were given out to the players in the event.

Not even the shower on Monday afternoon could put a damper on the event that was a celebration of a lot of people that care and want to put an end to cancer.

Mike Gundy may not have played, but he was very involved and we caught up with him on the radio with an interview that we have edited into two parts. One thing very visible is that the Cowboys football boss has not cut the hair. It is a full-fledged mullet now for sure.
