Sanders to be honored by Oklahoma State

STILLWATER – Barry Sanders is being immortalized at Oklahoma State.

Sanders will have his name and jersey number added to the Ring of Honor inside Boone Pickens Stadium as part of the Cowboys’ game against TCU on Nov. 13. Additionally, a sculptor is at work on a statue that would permanently honor Sanders outside the stadium.

Sanders becomes the second member of the Cowboy Football Ring of Honor, following his teammate and fellow hall-of-famer Thurman Thomas, who was inducted in 2020. Once it is ready, Sanders will be the first OSU player honored with a statue outside the stadium. The sculptor working on the piece, Harold Holden, also made the statue of Boone Pickens that was unveiled in 2020.
