Video: Mike Gundy sells his Oklahoma State program in "Stories of Gratitude" feature

For the past month, Oklahoma State has been releasing Stories of Gratitude videos featuring Cowboy football players talking about their backgrounds, what they're thankful for, and what it means to be part of Mike Gundy's program.

The end result is something that provides some great insight for fans into some of the more well known players in the program. Below is star wide receiver James Washington's.

Over the weekend, the Cowboys released a new video, this time featuring Mike Gundy.

Gundy uses the opportunity to talk about why the program has become is a big sense of pride for him, going on to point out guys like Barry Sanders, Dez Bryant, and Dan Bailey.

"We know who we are, and we know what we value - toughness and discipline. We keep our focus on those values, which allows us to enjoy success.

"Success is winning at least 10 games in five of the last seven seasons. Success is playing in four New Years Six games since 2010. Success is producing 17 All Americans, and 6 NFL first-round draft picks since 2008."

"We develop the player," Gundy goes on to note. "But more importantly, we develop the person. We do everything from the inside-out. I am proud of what Cowboy football has become."

By all accounts, Gundy has done a remarkable job transforming the Oklahoma State program to where they are today, and this video illustrates a lot of that.
