A Rotary Club of Edmond member is seeing great response to his efforts to outfit Langston University athletes for success.
Langston’s basketball coach, Chris Wright and Rotarian Hunter Cottle recognized the need for student athletes to wear business suits to make the best impression
during job recruitment events and interviews. Hunter began a personal mission last Spring to collect used suits for players well over six feet tall. Since then, he has received more than 35 suits, and several shirts and dress pants.
“The suits filled the back seat of my truck from top to bottom with these clothes,” Cottle said.
Cottle found it amazing that others are writing checks to Langston to contribute to a suit fund for new suits—an ultimate goal for his campaign. He’s hoping he
can raise enough money to buy four to eight suits each year.
Cottle is grateful for the donations but says he still needs suits for athletes over six feet five inches tall.
“I am very thankful for the outpouring of donations,” Cottle said.

The latest delivery of suits included 25 suits, 15 shirts, 6 sweaters and a few ties.
