SAN ANTONIO - The reason Owasso, Okla., offensive lineman Brandon Webb plays the game of football is because he likes to win. The 6-foot-4, 320-pounder made that clear on Sunday afternoon during check-in at the U.S. Army All-American game.
"It's going to be a win," Webb said when asked about the upcoming game next Saturday. "That's all that matters. As long as we win, that's all that matters. I'm not guaranteeing a win, but I'm going to try to get that victory."
Coming out on top is important for Webb and is a big reason why he felt comfortable enough to commit in Oklahoma State's favor last June.
"I'm still happy with that decision," he said. "As a team, we're going to win. It's all you need."
Something else Webb needed was a good relationship with his future position coach, Joe Wickline.
"I chose OSU because I felt that coach Wick was the best at the position," Webb said. "I felt that he could coach me and make the best that I can be. He's a special character and I have a good relationship with the whole coaching staff right now. All the coaches there are real cool and good coaches."
While many of the participants in the U.S. Army All-American game were walking around the hotel being interviewed about prospective programs, Webb took pride in already having an answer for those with hopes of getting any scoop.
"You kind of get to live a lot freer without everyone asking you where you're going to go to college," he said. "I just tell them 'Oklahoma State' and then everybody goes on with their own business and I just keep going."
The Rivals.com ranked No. 4 player in the state of Oklahoma says he has advice for any of his West teammates that might still be looking for their final destination.
"If it takes you that long to make a decision then just make sure that you make the right decision," he said. "I know that I made the right decision so I didn't have to wait. If you know, just make the decision."
Webb made the decision in favor of the Cowboys, despite his father being an OU graduate.
"There are some people who say that I made a bad decision but you have to live with that sometimes," Webb said. "People are always going to criticize. That's fine, I'm just going to go to Stillwater and play ball."
