Mike Gundy Gives Update After Second Scrimmage of Fall Camp



On Friday morning, Oklahoma State completed its second scrimmage of fall camp that spanned about 110 plays.

With 13 days left until the first game of the season, maintaining health is of the utmost importance, and Mike Gundy came away pleased with the health of the team on the whole, as well as the overall development of depth as the team prepares for Tulsa on Aug. 31.

“We worked a lot on special teams, 2s and 3s got the majority of the work, and it seemed like we stayed healthy,” Gundy said after the scrimmage. “I liked the effort and how fast our team was playing. Defense did a good job lining up. We’re getting some quality work at our running back position. Our young players on both sides of the ball got extensive work today, which is really good experience for them.

“I was pleased with the defense and their ability to play 100 plays, and I don’t think they had a penalty. The offense had 4. So those are good signs at this point in the season.”

With the quarterback competition taking some shape, the big question mark remains at running back — where Gundy said the backups have made strides, including Chuba Hubbard, but it appears the RB2 job is as wide open as ever.

“Well I like those guys,” Gundy said. “Ja’Ron is running well. King is running well. I thought Chuba played really well today. Carr got in and got a little bit of work. We have a number of guys that should be able to play that position—most of them don’t have any experience—but the good news is that over the next three years, we should be pretty set at that position.”

Gundy also gave a positive update on the kicking situation with Matt Amendola, who seems to have a leg up on the starting job at placekicker, and noted that Monday will mark the first day of game preparation for Tulsa.

Oh, and Mike Gundy recruited another disciple of the mullet movement. It appears Friday was a productive day for the Cowboy football program.
