Texas Tech Football
The Giants and the Chiefs are playing this weekend and as NY Daily News’ Pat Leonard writes, the matchup of Davis Webb vs. Patrick Mahomes will have to wait:
“It wasn’t bad. I wasn’t mad at him. I wasn’t mad at anybody. I was just anxious,” Webb said of transferring, something he never could have foreseen entering college. “I rooted Pat on his last year at Tech, my last year at Cal. I watched every Tech game on film and live TV. He and I are really close. We would meet together every day, we were in the same room with Kliff. That was a great room.”
“Kliff went with the hot hand,” he added. “I would, too, if I was the coach in that situation. I wasn’t too upset, I just wanted an opportunity. So I move on to Cal, was voted captain there, had great teammates, so it was worth it.”
The BC Lions’ Matt Baker profiles former Red Raider footballer Micah Awe:
Once the final whistle is blown to end your season, the day-to-day grind can change in an instant. Just ask Micah Awe: along with getting prepared to tackle his winter workout routine, the stud linebacker has already started a pretty important offseason job at the University of Illinois. The Petroleum Engineering major from Texas Tech will be spending most of his days working on a project funded by the Department of Energy in the United States.
“Right now I am just getting started so it’s a lot of paperwork and getting my email ready, but I’m working on core analysis and reservoir simulations. That is more of what I specialized in back in college,” Awe explained.
