Record book update: Josh Stewart

by Gina Mizell Published: January 23, 2013

For the next couple weeks, we’ll take a look at Oklahoma State’s updated record books, based on the numbers put up by the 2012 Cowboys.

Josh Stewart had a breakout 2012 season for OSU, developing into the Cowboys’ leading receiver and one of the most productive pass-catchers in the Big 12.

Stewart obviously has a much different skill set than a Justin Blackmon or Dez Bryant. He plays in the slot, allowing him to catch a bevy of short passes and use his shifty moves to make defenders miss in space, rather than lining up on the outside and making a significant chunk of his plays downfield.

Still, Stewart’s 2012 season — where he tallied more than 100 catches and 1,200 yards — already makes him, statistically, one of the best receivers in OSU history.
