OSU has uncovered some gems from small-town Texas high schools.

Cowboys coaches hope they've struck again with Cole Walterscheid of Muenster, Texas: population 1,561.

Muenster, founded by German Catholic settlers about 15 miles west of Gainesville and I-35, is best known for its annual Germanfest celebration.

But it's known for football, too, with the Hornets going unbeaten into the Class A state quarterfinals, before falling to Albany and finishing 12-1. And Walterscheid was a standout defensive end for Muenster High, earning district Most Valuable Player honors, as a two-way starter and star.

Muenster isn't far from Celina, another small school that sent Jamie Blatnik and Caleb Lavey to Stillwater for stellar careers.

“We get those same type of kids,” Muenster coach Brady Carney told Scout.com, “and you see how hard they work. I know both of those guys have been leaders up there.

“Once Cole's weight catches up with his height, I have a feeling he's going to be just like those guys. They're going to see how hard he's going to work.”
