Former Oklahoma State Cowboys and Detroit Lions running back great Barry Sanders partook in the reunion of the 1988 Cowboys team on Saturday.

Former Oklahoma State Cowboys great Barry Sanders partook in the reunion of the 1988 team on Saturday. 

Jason Elmquist of the Stillwater News Press was on hand on Nov. 9 for the event. He says Sanders mingled with fans and addressed the media after the Cowboys crushed the Kansas Jayhawks 42-6.  

The 1988 Cowboys team finished 10-2 overall and had the winningest record in the school's football history prior to the 2011 squad's 12-1 finish. In the 1988 Holiday Bowl against Wyoming, Sanders rushed for 222 yards and scored five touchdowns without even playing in the final quarter to lead his team to a 62-14 win.   

"I'm pretty sure it'll be varied emotions, just memories and excitement and almost sadness that it has been so long. But at the same time, just thinking about how that year really changed my life, and also being able to be with the guys that were there that I experienced it with. 

"Time has flown by, but there's so many great memories and great people. I'm that guy that grew up watching all those Heisman Trophy winners prior to me, whether it was Vinny Testaverde, Doug Flutie, Marcus Allen or Billy Sims. I was studying those guys as a kid. 

"So the fact that my name will go down with theirs and have had the same type of impact on the game, is remarkable for me." 

Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy, Sanders' teammate and quarterback of the 1988 team who threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns against Wyoming, also narrated the details of the visit.

"He addressed our team in the locker room and he's one of the few guys from back in our generation where the players actually know who he is -- they've seen a lot on him and have  a lot of respect for the type of person and player he was.

"He did a nice job of talking to our team after the game.

"He's become a very good speaker. Obviously he's done it enough with his time in the NFL and dealing with media and fans. He's very well-spoken and handles himself well and says the right things.

Gina Mizell of NewsOK.com then asked Sanders how it feels like to have his former quarterback coach the current Cowboys team. 

"It means a lot. I know he (Gundy) cares deeply about Oklahoma State, even long before he was the coach here, and certainly as the head coach. Mike, he knows the game in and out and he has a great relationship with the kids and he cares about them and he certainly cares about this place. 

"It's remarkable to see what he's been able to do. I just think that even with the success we've enjoyed here that the future is as bright with him leading the team." 

Sanders went on to enjoy a prolific 10-season and 10-time Pro Bowl career with the NFL's Detroit Lions. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.

Barry Sanders' son is named Barry Sanders. I'm sorry, but we're going to have to keep calling him "Barry Sanders' son" for a while. He's very talented, a former blue-chip running back who's now part of Stanford's running back group and stunts like his daddy at times. He, like all football players, is also capable of getting BLOWED UP REAL GOOD by Hayes Pullard. Via ABC Through just a couple drives, the Tr ...

Are the Steve Sarkisian Trojans back to their old ways? Is USC a legitimate Pac-12 contender? The Trojans sure looked it in their season-opening drubbing of Fresno State, but they'll face a much stauncher test Saturday in their Pac-12 opener at Stanford. The Trojans beat the Bulldogs 52-13 Saturday, making easy work of a team that should compete for the Mountain West title. Quarterback Cody Kessler looked comfo ...

The 2014 NFL season marks Adrian Peterson's eighth in the NFL, and with 86 rushing touchdowns already, you'd be shocked at the names Peterson can pass and ultimately join this year. Can he stay healthy long enough and receive ample support from his team to notch another 14 rushing touchdowns? Or will it be nine in the box against Peterson, game in and game out?
