Saturday provided a unique opportunity for the Chelf family. Oklahoma State receiver Colton Chelf and quarterback Clint Chelf were on the field together during the Cowboys’ 65-17 win over Washington State last Saturday.
The thought of looking for his brother had to cross the mind of Clint Chelf as he dropped back to throw in his first game as a collegian.
But Dana Holgorsen was prepared for it.
“I specifically remember once on third down,” Holgorsen said. “They (WSU) called a timeout, I called a specific play and I said look ‘I don’t want (any) favoritism with your brother. Make this read, if that guy’s open throw it to him, if this guy’s open throw it to him, no favoritism.”
Clearly Clint heard Holgorsen loud and clear.
“He did the opposite,” Holgorsen said with a chuckle. “He ignored his brother, who was open, and stayed on the other read so we ended up punting. I wasn’t very happy about that.”
