    Oklahoma Freshman Wins Gatorade Award

    Union's Jayden Rowe, a 6-3, 215-pound cornerback, is the Oklahoma boys track athlete of the year after winning the 100 and 200 in Class 6A. Oklahoma is getting a burner. Jayden Rowe, a 6-foot-3, 215-

    pound cornerback in the 2022 class from Tulsa Union, was named the Gatorade Oklahoma Boys Track & Field Player of the Year this week. He won the Oklahoma Class 6A state championship in both the

    100 meter and 200 meter dash, running respective times 10.6 and 21.09. He also ran the second leg on the runner-up 4x100 and 4x200 relays. “Jayden stepped on the track this season with a mission —

    to leave as state champion in the 100 and the 200,” said Union coach Tim Dial. “He accomplished that goal with focus, work ethic and buying into the program we ran. I expect big things out of him in the

    coming years at OU, both on the football field and the track.”

    After winning the sprint double gold, Rowe is arriving at OU this summer. Between transfers and returners, the Sooners are stacked at almost every defensive back position, but there may be an opportunity

    for him to back up returning starters Woodi Washington or D.J. Graham at corner. Gatorade recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and

    exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field. Rowe has volunteered locally on behalf of youth track programs and has maintained a 3.07 GPA in the classroom. The Gatorade Player of the Year

    program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys

    and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field. Gatorade awards one National Player of the Year in each sport. Through Gatorade’s “Play it Forward” platform, Rowe now has the

    opportunity to award a $1,000 grant to a local or national organization of his choosing that helps young athletes realize the benefits of playing sports.

    Sounds like a high character guy who also happens to be tall and very fast.

    With that kind of speed I'm wondering why he isn't a WR. Maybe he has small hands. Who cares as long as he can cover, out jump receivers, bat down passes, and hopefully pick off a few.

      Maybe he likes hitting instead of being hit.

        Good question. He's awfully big for a corner. Speed wouldn't be a problem but agility and change of direction might be.

          WR? Dude is a 215 lber. I wonder why he isn't in the backfield? LOL.

          It is an interesting question why he isn't on offense at the high school level but at a place like Union I suppose there is so much talent that you have the luxury of specializing guys.

          Probably at 80-90% of most high schools out there he would be on offense as well.

          Whatever though, it's rare to have guys that big who can run 10.6.

            215 lbs is a little light for a 6'3" running back. Consider that Derrick Henry is 6'3" and 247 lbs. AD was 6'1" and 220 lbs.

            But I'm sure he could bulk up if needed.

              Given his size already in HS, I expect he'll end up as the fastest LT in the history of OU football.

              Kidding aside, if he does grow more, he could end up the fastest LB ever at OU.

                  Faster than Teddy Lehman?

                  He was not highly recruited out of high school but ran a 4.4 40-yard dash at an Oklahoma football camp for high school players and was offered a scholarship shortly after.

                  He ended his senior season with 151 tackles, 3 interceptions, 2 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles. He ranked third in the state in rushing with 1,252 yards and 16 touchdowns on 206 carries (6.1 avg.) as a running back. He also shared the punting duties for the Tigers with an average of 39.6 yards.

                    What were Lehman's 100m and 200m times? Not football relevant, but that's where the real human top speeds get measured.

                                    Did you spike the punch a little too hard this evening? Jackson Holliday, from Stillwater, won the award for baseball. He’ll be one of the first players taken in the draft in a couple weeks. His dad wasn’t bad either, also Okie.

                                                  Maybe he can return kicks? I would like to see him play safety. He could really lay the wood to someone!
