Project 1-2-3: Day 26 - "If I had hair . . ."

Note: Starting May 1st and continuing for the 123 days leading up to the start of the 2011 college football season, "Project 1-2-3" will share pictures, videos and memorable moments from the last nine years of Special Spectators game day events.

Over the last nine years, we've met some incredible children. Their presence, demeanor, grace and spirit are truly inspiring. Many are wise beyond their years and possess a sharp sense of humor.

This was on display during the Special Spectators event at Oklahoma State in 2010. Head Coach Mike Gundy invited the kids to stand in the tunnel as the Cowboys took the field at Boone Pickens Stadium. Up to this point, the event had been full of excitement - a tour of all the facilities including the locker room and field, introduced to the alumni at the pep rally, a pizza party, and the first to greet the team at "The Walk".

As the kids waited for the team to emerge from the locker room, however, it was obvious that the kids' enthusiasm was high.

And then Morgan from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma had the perfect line. "I'm so excited. If I had hair it would be standing on end."

We'll have more on this event later in "Project 1-2-3".

Below is a picture of Morgan and the other Special Spectators with Coach Gundy in the tunnel.
