Trey Reeves is put on schol­ar­ship

The Oklahoman - - SPORTS - Nathan Ruiz

STILL­WA­TER — As the Ok­la­homa State bas­ket­ball team pre­pared for its sea­son opener Satur­day against Char­lotte, coach Mike Boyn­ton had some spe­cial news for one of the Cowboys’ vet­er­ans.

Ju­nior Trey Reeves, a walk-on from Gans and the son of Cow­boy great Bryant “Big Coun­try” Reeves, was placed on schol­ar­ship Fri­day.

In a video posted to the team’s Twit­ter ac­count, Boyn­ton had each of the Cowboys’ cap­tains read a line be­fore call­ing Reeves up him­self.

Cam McGriff: “The def­i­ni­tion of ap­pre­ci­a­tion is to show grat­i­tude to some­one ...”

Thomas Dzi­agwa: “... to rec­og­nize the good qual­i­ties in a per­son and share in the en­joy­ment with them.”

Lindy Wa­ters: “So to show our ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all of the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion you have shown to Cow­boy bas­ket­ball ...”

Boyn­ton then asked Reeves to read the fi­nal line: “We would like to proudly an­nounce that Trey Reeves is now on full schol­ar­ship.”

Reeves’ team­mates sur­rounded him, bring­ing him to the floor in cel­e­bra­tion. In 17 ca­reer games, Reeves has played 34 min­utes.

The Cowboys had one schol­ar­ship avail­able en­ter­ing this sea­son, and rather than leave it open, Boyn­ton felt Reeves de­served it, a team spokesper­son said.

The schol­ar­ship is for only the 2018-19 sea­son.
