Tech baseball wrapped up another perfect week against UNLV and Whichita State. The Red Raiders have another five games and another five wins under their belts after two consecutive series sweeps over UNLV at home and Whichita State on the road. Tech was ranked #3 last week by D1 Baseball and could move up #2 as previously undefeated Louisville dropped their first two games of the season. Since that less than stellar game in Arlington against UTA, Texas Tech is 8-0 outscoring opponents 39-20 in that time. That’s pretty good.

Let’s backtrack for a minute to February 17, 2017. Tech upsets the No. 4 team in the country, Baylor, 84-78, getting the signature win they desperately sought....

Measuring in at 6’2 and running a 4.8 40 time, he is obviously not the fastest quarterback in his class, but he’s definitely stout. Mahomes ended the weekend logging a 30-inch vertical and a broad jump of 114.
