Colton Chelf Makes Most of Opportunity

Nearly two days had passed since Stanford's field goal wobbled wide left, Oklahoma State's sailed true and the Cowboys celebrated a season — and a Fiesta Bowl — like no other, but Colton Chelf was still having trouble wrapping his head around all of it.

“It still doesn't really feel real,” he said midday Wednesday.

Rest assured, Colton, it was.

And what's more, the reserve receiver was a very real part of it. This was a game with plenty of orange-clad stars, but none was more surprising than Chelf. None was more deserving.

The former walk-on had career highs in catches and yards receiving, including a huge play in overtime that set up the Cowboys' game-winning kick. On a night when plenty of subplots got lost in the craziness of the game, Chelf's story is worth rewinding.
