Old Man Wee­den

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Ok­la­homa State has its ver­sion of Quan Cosby this year. Ex­cept the Cow­boys will use their elder states­man at quar­ter­back.

Bran­don Wee­den, 26, says be­ing ma­ture has its draw­backs and ben­e­fits.

“They make fun of me for be­ing old,” said Wee­den, who was drafted by the New York Yan­kees out of high school. “But they also lis­ten when I tell them not to let this op­por­tu­nity pass them by.

“I un­der­stand why hard work is im­por­tant. I thought I was go­ing to play pro­fes­sional base­ball. It didn’t work out. I didn’t work hard enough. I know not to let that hap­pen again.”
