The Morning Stake: August 24th

Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics, as the Lady Raiders win their final game in Spain and Texas Tech commit Xavier Martin receives a preseason honor.


Congrats to freshman Jordie Harr, who was named the Big 12 Freshman of the Week after scoring two goals in last week’s win over New Mexico.

The Lady Raiders won their third and final game in their tour of Portugal and Spain. NO time for a link, but here are the highlights:


The official site released released the renderings for the new videoboard design for the United Supermarkets Arena yesterday. Details at the link in the tweet.


KSAT named the San Antonio area’s elite 12 high school football recruits and Texas Tech commit was #1 on the list. There’s a short video of Martin that you can check out at the site.

RRS’s Will McKay has Q&A’s with Nik Shimonek, Breiden Fehoko and Gary Moore. I really liked the one with Fehoko the most, he talks a bit about some of his defensive line mates and true freshmen who have made an impact, Joe Wallace and Noah Jones. Here’s a bit on Fehoko talking about playing next to Ondre Pipkins:

“Man, I love playing next to Big Pip. Big, violent dude, and he’s someone I can really rely on there to eat up space with me on the inside, to help make space for the linebackers. That’s what I look forward to. When you have someone you can trust next to you – heck, even Broderick (Washington) or Mych (Thomas) – I can trust those guys. For Pip, he’s come along from sitting out last year. He’s worked hard. He’s come along really well, gotten himself into playing shape. I think he’s down to 305 now. He was twitchy before, and he’s getting even more twitchy now.”
