STILLWATER, Okla. – "How I Got Here" is a series that asks Oklahoma State football players to detail their football background and careers and how they got to where they are now. Today's edition features offensive lineman/tight end Zac Veatch from Broken Arrow, Okla.
On when he started playing football “I have been playing football since I can remember. I started out playing flag football around first grade.”
On what position he grew up playing “I grew up playing offensive line, tight end and a little bit of running back, but mostly offensive line my entire life.”
On his favorite part of playing offensive line “Whenever I get a good block and the running back is right behind me is always great. It is nice to know that I had a part of helping the running back succeed.”
On his biggest influence growing up “My biggest influence would have to be Coach Dunn from high school. He really taught me more to life than football. He taught me how to become a man and what is important outside of my football life.”
On why he chose Oklahoma State “It’s close to home and I love Oklahoma. When I took my visit here in high school, the atmosphere just felt right to me and like home.”
On his college career to this point and the future “I feel like my career has gone pretty well so far. For the future I just planning on going out there and continuing to compete and maybe someday I can go out there and catch a touchdown.”
