Pre-Draft Q&A With Justin Blackmon

Two-time Biletnikoff Award winner shares his favorite moments as a Cowboy

• Rob Glass is in his ninth year as assistant athletic director for speed, strength and conditioning at his alma mater and was a key figure in Oklahoma State winning its first-ever Big 12 Conference title and making its first-ever BCS bowl game appearance in 2011.

• Glass, one of the most recognized and preeminent strength and conditioning experts in college athletics, returned to OSU after a 10-year stint at Florida. Glass first worked for the Cowboys as both a football graduate assistant coach and strength coach from 1986-95 and his current tenure brings his total to 18 years at Oklahoma State.

• During his career, Glass has worked with two Heisman Trophy winners (Barry Sanders and Danny Wuerffel), a Golden Spikes Award winner (Robin Ventura), a Thorpe Award winner (Lawrence Wright) a two-time Biletnikoff Award winner (Justin Blackmon), a Lou Groza Award winner (Dan Bailey) and a Ray Guy Award winner (Matt Fodge) in addition to 17 first-round NFL draft picks and three first-round NBA draft picks as well as countless All-Americans and Olympians.

• After earning his bachelor's degree from Oklahoma State in 1984, Glass served on Pat Jones' football staff as a graduate assistant coach. He was named head strength coach at OSU in 1989 and served in that capacity until 1995, when he accepted a position as coordinator of strength and conditioning at Florida. He became Florida's director of strength and conditioning in 1998.

• In May of 2002, Glass was named a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach, the highest honor that can be achieved as a strength and conditioning coach, by the National Conference of Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association.

• Glass has been associated with 20 bowl teams since 1987, including the Alamo, Sun, Holiday, Insight, Cotton and Fiesta Bowls at Oklahoma State, and 10 bowls at Florida, including the 1996 Fiesta Bowl, two Orange Bowls and two Sugar Bowls. He was at Florida for a national championship and worked with two Gator squads that played in the national title game. He worked with four UF teams that played in the SEC championship game.

• At Oklahoma State, Glass has been instrumental in the development of All-Americans Barry Sanders, Thurman Thomas, Jason Gildon, Dez Bryant, Kendall Hunter, Brandon Pettigrew, Russell Okung, Justin Blackmon, Levy Adcock, Quinn Sharp and Justin Gilbert. • At Florida, he worked with Fred Taylor, Jevon Kearse, Gerard Warren, Kenyatta Walker, Rex Grossman and Lito Sheppard, all of whom were first-round draft picks in the National Football League.
