      Garth Brooks Flashback

      Most people know the Garth Brooks they see in concert or on Country Music Television.{} But did you know he once participated in track and field at Oklahoma State?

      That's right.{} He competed for the Cowboys in the early to mid 80's.{} I was told he was a pole vaulter, but was able to find more pictures on the web of him throwing the javelin.

      Tulsa's Channel 8 was not granted permission to use those pictures.{} This photo came from Oklahoma State University.{} OSU said it was the only photo of Garth's track days in their archives.
