26 Sep EP68: Coach O
Known throughout the state as Big O, Coach O, or the Turkey Leg Guy, Owen Wilson Jr. is no stranger to the grind. On any given week he serves Edmond Public Schools as a Behavior Consultant, leaves class for football practice as the Assistant Coach for Edmond Santa Fe, leaves practice to cut grass for his lawn care business, and spends the weekends grilling barbecue for the masses through another company he founded – Big O’s Pork and Dreams. Brandy catches up with his high school mentor as Coach O recalls stories with a common theme: love. As a husband, father, business owner, educator, and community pillar, Coach credits his continued blessings to God and the love of friends and strangers alike. From his career with the school district, to expanding his bbq business after losing two trucks, his hard work and community connections continue to create new opportunities. Hungrier than ever, Coach O isn’t letting up as he prepares for his first brick & mortar location for Big O’s Pork and Dreams.
