There’s talk of bringing a national championship back to Stillwater, Oklahoma in 2020, and Oklahoma State’s quarterback is on board with that thinking. Spencer Sanders says he doesn’t like to play it safe. His ‘go big or go home’ mentality is just what the Cowboys need, and it’s a confidence that will elevate the offense to a new level.

We’ve seen good quarterbacks at Oklahoma State before, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen a dual threat at the level that Sanders plays. He’s not quite the passer that his recent predecessors have been, but he adds a running aspect to the offense that the others guys did not. He’s a dangerous runner who’s quick but also tough. Throwing a stiff arm and taking hits isn’t something he’s afraid of, and it’s what separates him from other Cowboys quarterbacks.

As a passer, Sanders displays decent arm strength to make long throws, but is     limited with how far he can push the ball downfield. Same with his velocity. He’s shown that he can fit his passes into tight windows, but at times the windows can be too tight for the ball to fit. His windup’s a little longer, which also limits how  quickly he can get the ball out. Luckily for the Pokes, Sanders isn’t afraid to take a chance and make something out of nothing. He’s good at throwing on the run, and throws the ball with good accuracy while on the move. Even if he takes a risk, it’s tough to argue with the results most of the time.

Spencer Sanders gives the fans in Stillwater something they haven’t seen before, but he’ll still need to show he can be a threat with his arm as well. Winning a national championship puts a ton of pressure on a team, and their quarterback needs to show he can handle it. Sanders is already saying the right things, and now he gets a chance to show it.
