Littell family thrives on court and diamond for the Cowboys

We’ve seen father-son, coach-player combinations in college athletics for years, but usually, the duo is involved in the same sport. Not at Oklahoma State.

Jon Littell is an outfielder on the Oklahoma State baseball team, while his father Jim is the head coach of the OSU women’s basketball team. Both had very successful years in 2015-16.

The Cowboys baseball team made it to the College World Series in Omaha and only fell one win short of reaching the final series. Meanwhile, the Oklahoma State women’s basketball squad won 21 games and was a No. 7 seed in the 2016 NCAA tournament.

Though father and son aren’t directly involved with one another from an athletic standpoint, their admiration and appreciation for one another is obvious. Oklahoma State released the below feature on the Littell family, and it’s definitely worth learning more about their unique relationship.
