DALLAS — The Oklahoma State Cowboys’ football team visited Texas Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital Tuesday for a meet-and-greet with patients.

OSU quarterback Clint Chelf of Enid said the opportunity for the Cowboys to play a part in brightening the lives of children is a blessing.

“It’s amazing – anytime you give back to the community, especially to young kids, that’s something we’re really big on,” Chelf said. “All the players are excited about coming here and meeting people that might be less fortunate than us. We have to recognize and put into perspective what these people have been through. Giving back to them is something we’re all really excited about.”

Chelf also had a message for the Scottish Rite patients.

“You’re always gonna have setbacks; there’s always adversity and a lot guys on our team have faced adversity,” Chelf said. “The one thing you have to do is keep pushing forward. Not everything is going to go your way at certain times, and you just have to keep going and keep pushing through.”

Chelf and the Oklahoma State Cowboys are in Dallas to face the Missouri Tigers Friday in the Cotton Bowl.
