Then & Now: Seniors 4-6 years later (Part 1)
Every August, one of the first things we look to do in the ever-dwindling open portions of Oklahoma State fall camp practices is to take photos of all of the newcomers we can. With a variety of seniors ranging from their fourth year at OSU to their sixth (!), we decided it was time to take a look back and see how much guys have changed.
In some cases, the "Body by (Rob) Glass" transformation is very apparent. Others are more subtle.
5th-year senior RB Jeremy Smith
Known for his unbelievable upper arms, a popular thought is that Smith has always been that way. That's only partially true. He's always had impressive biceps, but there is little doubt he's added muscle in his five years at OSU. (Smith wore #36 early in his career).
5th-year senior OL Parker Graham
Graham arrived at OSU as a 250-pound o-lineman and many wondered if he could ever put on enough weight to make a difference. He's now going into his third season as a starter and weighing in around 310.
5th-year senior WR Tracy Moore
Moore is a bit different than most here. He arrived in Stillwater "soft" - not lacking muscle, but carrying extra, non-useful weight. He worked hard over his career to change that, and the results are very apparent. He dropped 10 pounds on the scale, and no doubt lost more fat than that, but replaced it with muscle.
4th-year senior LB Shaun Lewis
A difference-maker as a true freshman, Lewis arrived at OSU in great shape. The photo evidence is pretty clear that he maintained his leanness while adding plenty of muscle.
6th-year senior FB Kye Staley
Staley arrived at OSU as an "athlete" who projected to running back. One shredded knee and two seasons out of football later, Staley revived his career as a fullback. In that time, he went from 215 pounds to 236, and dropped the 2 from his freshman-year jersey.
4th-year senior CB Justin Gilbert
In 2010, Gilbert was a blazingly-fast, but skinny immediate contributor. In 2013, he's still a blazer but "skinny" isn't a word you'd associate with him. ***Note the "2009" designation on his freshman photo is incorrect. It was 2010.
Coming tomorrow - LB Caleb Lavey, S Daytawion Lowe, OL Brandon Webb, DE Tyler Johnson, QB Clint Chelf, WR Charlie Moore
