Sellers Leads the 2005 Aggie Football Team
by Aggie Sports on 06/01/05
Goodwell, OK – A young Texan arrived on the Oklahoma Panhandle State campus in August of 2002 after a great high school career. This baby-faced, skinny 150-pounder with blond hair flowing from under his helmet looked a bit out of place as he took the field for his initial college football game.
In that first game, freshman Ty Sellers stepped on to the field to quarterback the Aggies, then riding the longest NCAA Division II losing streak in the country.
The first time he touched the ball he dropped back to pass, but exploded out of the pocket and reversed his direction three times for a 15-yard gain. The air was electric that night and many OPSU fans felt, at that moment, that Aggie football fortunes would also be reversed, and reversed for the better . . . and they were correct.
Now the holder of the OPSU total offense record with over 6,000 yards (in a run-based offense), Sellers will enter his senior season this fall as a full grown 190-pounder with a rifle arm and as quick a pair of feet as there is in all of college football.
Sellers has led the Aggies to winning seasons in each of the last two years and has the athletic ability as well as the heart to provide true leadership on the field.
He was named first team All Independent Football Alliance last year and was also recognized for academic excellence. In addition to being a special student-athlete, he is also an accomplished artist.
Plain and simple . . . when Ty Sellers has the football . . . GOOD THINGS HAPPEN.
