OSU’s future at QB is pole vaulting (quite well)

Nick Starkel has taken up a new sport this spring. And he’s apparently really good at it.

I’m not sure if this is Mike Gundy-approved, but future OSU signal-caller Nick Starkel is now a track star, apparently. Here’s Robert Allen on the news:

We did not know he was involved in pole vaulting this spring. He had said he was involved in track but we thought he was running to improve his speed or conditioning.

“I started pole vaulting with the track team and I loved it,” Starkel said. “I made state and got fourth. I don’t know if the football coaches like it or not, but I had fun with it.”

Oh you know, just taking up new sports and placing top five in the state. Starkel tweeted this photo of himself in action.

Just wanted to assuage everyone’s fears and confirm that I am not part of the blogging #croptopgang.
