Warren Clay was just 3 years old when he was chosen as one of MetroFamily’s 2021 Cover Kids, lighting up that year’s January/February cover with his bright smile and palpable joy. His parents, Rob and Brittany, could never have predicted that by the end of 2021, Warren would be a household name across the state and beyond.

During the 2021 Oklahoma State University homecoming football game, 4-year-old Warren helped game day host and OSU hype man Les Thomas Sr. lead a cheer during a timeout. Warren’s energy and enthusiasm won the hearts of every fan in the stadium, and those 15 seconds of fame led to his nickname Warren The Cowboy, clothing featuring his photo, meet and greets in Stillwater, a song and music video and more.

Everywhere the family goes, not just when in Stillwater but at the grocery store or local restaurants, Warren is recognized and asked for photos. The kindergartener loves the limelight, but he mostly enjoys spreading joy.

“Warren is a big ball of energy and his motto is big love,” said Rob. “He loves showing big love to people, giving hugs and making people’s days.”

At school, Warren enjoys reading, PE and recess. He still loves monster trucks and Oklahoma State football, with his favorite player being big brother Collin Clay. Warren is practicing his dribbling skills and learning to roller skate, and he and his family are also working on new songs and a children’s book.

“To see what he has already accomplished is mind-blowing,” said Rob. “We are just grateful.”
