Toby Rowland is the two-time Emmy Award winning Voice of the Oklahoma Sooners. A popular fixture behind the mic for the last decade of Sooner football, basketball and baseball, Rowland’s enthusiastic and unique style is unmistakable. He has also hosted the highly acclaimed “T-Row in the Morning Show” on the SportsTalk Radio Network for the last 16 years, as well as a multitude of television and radio shows for Sooners Sports TV, Fox Sports Oklahoma and the Sooner Radio Network. It may be through Rowland’s beloved “Scenesetters” before every Sooner football game that his gift for writing has best endeared him to OU fans. That gift now gets shared with the next generation of Sooner Nation with his first book, Unhitch the Wagon.
Previously, Rowland was a decorated sports anchor and reporter at KWTV in Oklahoma City for 10 years, winning awards as the host of the Friday Football Blitz and producer of the Statewide Oklahoma Sports Blitz.
Rob Peters has illustrated over 30 children’s books. Other books illustrated by Rob include Go Cars Go! 'Twas the Night Before TipOff—The University of Kansas Jayhawks, Go Cubs Go! Baseball’s Never Give Up Story and Kansas City Chiefs ABCs and 1-2-3s.
