Joseph Randle Drafted By Dallas Cowboys
Oklahoma State running back was the 18th pick of the fifth round.
STILLWATER – Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the 18th pick of the fifth round in the 2013 NFL Draft. He was the 151 overall pick in the draft and joins fellow OSU products Dez Bryant and Dan Bailey with the Dallas Cowboys.
Randle was a two-time first-team All-Big 12 performer, earning the honor in both 2011 and 2012, and was a key figure in the Cowboys having one of the most feared offenses in America both seasons. With Randle starting at running back, the Cowboys were the only team in the nation to average more than seven yards per play in each of the past two seasons.
A semifinalist for the 2012 Doak Walker Award presented to the nation's top running back, Randle finished his career eighth in OSU history in career rushing yards with 3,085, fourth in career rushing touchdowns (40) and 10th in career scoring with 258 points. That point total is fourth all-time among OSU running backs.
“We’re happy that Joseph is getting the chance to live his dream by playing in the NFL and we’re excited about what the future holds for him,” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. “He was a very productive player on our team and now he has the opportunity to continue the NFL running back tradition that we have established here at Oklahoma State over a number of years.”
Randle is the latest running back to come from the same Oklahoma State program that produced NFL Hall of Famers Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas and current San Francisco 49ers back Kendall Hunter, among numerous others.
“I love Oklahoma State and the three years I spent here were the best time of my life,” Randle said. “I thank my teammates, my coaches, the fans and really everyone involved who make it a great place. I’m excited for my new opportunity and I’m ready to go after it, but I’ll always be an Oklahoma State Cowboy at heart.”

Trio of Cowboys Returning to Oklahoma State
STILLWATER, Okla. — Markel Brown, Le'Bryan Nash and Marcus Smart all announced their intentions to return to Oklahoma State for the 2013-14 basketball season today at the Student Union Atrium on the OSU campus. All three had been considering the opportunity to enter the National Basketball Association draft in June.
"This is an exciting time for Cowboy Basketball," said head coach Travis Ford. "All three of these guys will have an opportunity to compete at the next level. They realize and understand that the individual awards they received come from great team chemistry, playing well together as a team and winning basketball games. Staying in school also provides them with an opportunity to continue their education, which is very important to them and their families."
Nash, a two-time All-Big 12 selection, averaged 14 points and 4.1 rebounds per game as a sophomore last season. He was named All-Big 12 Third Team by the league coaches and honorable mention All-Big 12 by the Associated Press. A prolific scorer, he has 44 double-figure scoring games in his two-year career.
Brown, a unanimous second-team All-Big 12 honoree and an All-District VI selection as a junior in 2012-13, averaged 15.3 points and 4.4 rebounds per game this season. He improved his shooting averages during the offseason, shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the three-point arc. He became the second player in school history to record 200 assists, 100 steals and 75 blocked shots in a career, joining Byron Houston.
Smart, a consensus second-team All-American, led the Cowboys, averaging 15.4 points and 4.2 assists per game as a freshman. He was named both the Big 12 Conference's Player and Freshman of the Year. He received the Integris Wayman Tisdale Award as the national freshman of the year from the United States Basketball Writers Association and was a first-team All-American according to Sporting News.
"I'm very excited about next season," Ford said. "With all the players we have returning, and the addition of some extremely talented new guys, next year should be very entertaining. We're looking forward to many sold-out games inside Gallagher-Iba Arena."
With all three players coming back, Oklahoma State has the top-three returning scorers in the Big 12 Conference for the 2013-14 season. The Cowboys also return their top-seven scorers from a team that went 24-9 a year ago and was one-win shy of sharing a league title.

His recent Christmas album, Cheers, It’s Christmas received 4 ½ of 5 stars in People Magazine and The New York Times has said “…he’s becoming the most important and visible ambassador from Nashville to the American mainstream.”
“My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it - they know I love to perform. With The Voice schedule, I was not able to go out and perform as much as I wanted last year but I plan to make up for it this year,” Blake said with a devilish smirk. “This summer is going to be a blast. I want everyone at my shows to leave feeling like they got every penny’s worth of their ticket. I am going to give them every ounce of me on that stage because they deserve it. My fans are die hard country fans, they love to laugh and have a good time and I’m going to join them in what truly will be the Ten Times Crazier Tour.”
GRAMMY nominated Blake Shelton is CMA Awards’ Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year for his third consecutive year. Blake is one of the "most versatile of contemporary country singers" (The New York Times).

Blake’s current album, Cheers It’s Christmas, features several duet performances with multiple GRAMMY Award winning artists such as Michael Bublé, long-time friend, Reba, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson and a very special duet with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, which they wrote together. Blake’s infectious multi-week No.1 hit, “Honey Bee" holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist.
