On this episode I chatted with Steven Vekony. Steven graduated from Oklahoma State and for two years had the incredible opportunity to be Pistol Pete from 2017-2019. Steven tells us all about the role as Pete, the history, the events on and off the field and ultimately what it feels like to be Pete. What it meant to him and to the people of Oklahoma State. Steven talks about the process of becoming Pete, trying out for years before being selected. The first game, the first appearance the weddings, events and more. Steven talks about the legacy of Frank Eaton who Pistol Pete is based on. This episode was so much fun and filled with little gems about Pete. Not just for OSU fans but all sports fans. #GoPokes
