SPECIAL SENIOR DAY ENTRANCE FOR LOWE?
Cowboy safety Daytawion Lowe is also an avid horseback rider, spending a large bulk of his free time during the offseason on the country land his family owns in western Oklahoma.
Gary Rose, Lowe's high school coach at Carl Albert, once revealed one of Lowe's dreams was to ride Bullet out of the tunnel in uniform.
Lowe's got one more chance, as he'll play his final game at Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday.
Could he make a big entrance on Senior Day?

“I gotta be safe,” Lowe said with a laugh. “I need my legs to stay on the ground. It might be a little slick, too, so I gotta keep my legs on the ground.”
