For a two-year period after leaving the Oklahoma State program, Christian Littlehead says he “hated football.” Today, his love of the game is restored and he works as a defensive assistant for the Edison program. MATT BARNARD/TULSA WORLD

For a long time, I wondered what became of Christian Littlehead.

A former Tahlequah Sequoyah star who played in an All-American game in South Carolina, Littlehead signed with Oklahoma State after having considered offers from Nebraska, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Louisville and Kansas State.

When he reported to the Cowboy program in 2010, he was measured at 6-foot-3 and 358 pounds. After a year with strength coach Rob Glass, and after conditioning himself to choose grilled chicken instead of cheeseburgers, Littlehead in 2011 was a 305-pound nose tackle who got four starts and significant playing time for a Big 12 championship team.
