OSU Football: A Cowboy who vows to whoop it up in Dallas
The Cowboys are back at practice, preparing for the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Jan. 1.
And while the tendency for younger players is to wish away the workouts and get to the game, OSU senior defensive end Cooper Bassett wishes time would stand still.
For Bassett, arguably the most orange-bleeding of all Cowboys, he wants to milk every last moment of enjoyment from this final stage of his senior season.
“I talked to my parents a lot about it, how I just want to have fun,” Bassett said. “I want to enjoy everything, enjoy my last time being a part of this team. To get to goof around with my teammates, enjoy bowl gifts and bowl money. That’s always good.
“My last time as a Cowboy, so it’s a little bittersweet. I want to soak it all in. I’ll probably be a little emotional after the game.”
Like all Cowboys, Bassett still has a bad taste in his mouth from the way the regular season ended, with a disappointing loss and performance at Baylor.
