Dylan Harding from Oklahoma high school football powerhouse Jenks was named to the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Oklahoma team as a defensive back.
At 6-2 and 190 pounds, he played on 6A state championship teams in 2012 and ’13 before heading to Stillwater to play for Oklahoma State.
Since joining the Cowboys, he has played in almost every game in the last two seasons and was named first team Academic All-Big 12 in 2015.
Now a junior, his football career has sadly come to an end after doctors diagnosed him with spinal stenosis.
In a heartfelt Instagram post late Friday night, Harding shared his love for the game.
“I got to experience something I’ll never forget and cherish forever,” he wrote.
