Bassett dons a dress — for charity

One guy who was a bit apprehensive when photos of Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills in a purple dress surfaced on the Internet? Oklahoma State defensive end Cooper Bassett.

“I was like, ‘Great, I hope no one makes fun of my pictures,'” Bassett said.

Yep, Bassett has his own dress photos.

It was all for charity, however.

Bassett, like many OSU players, is involved with the Coaches vs. Cancer program, where he has particularly formed a bond with young patient Taylor Brandt. So when the Children's Hospital Foundation was looking for guys to dress up like ladies and collect donations on The Strip in Stillwater during a dance marathon fundraiser in February, Bassett was all for it.

“I'm one who doesn't get embarrassed very often,” Bassett said.

And how did Bassett think he looked in the dress?

“I'd like to say I've got some curves on me,” Bassett said with a laugh. “I filled it out pretty nicely. The people that were in charge of getting the dresses for dance marathon, kudos to them for finding the perfect fit for me.”

The dance marathon raised more than $37,000.
