Patrick Mahomes bought some brand new cleats for Whitehouse, his old high school.

Patrick Mahomes had one of the most ridiculous college careers of all time. He played in 32 games for Texas Tech over the course of three years, and only started for two full seasons. In total, he threw for 11,252 yards. He tossed 93 touchdowns to 29 interceptions. He had a 63.5 percent completion rating over all those years. In one game against Oklahoma, he threw for a staggering 734 yards, and had 819 yards of total offense. That performance gave him the record for most yards in a game by a single player.

His stats were punctuated by insane throws. Across his body for 50 yards? No problem. A no-look pass? Easy. He simply was the system at Texas Tech, for better or worse for the Red Raiders.

In short, he’s arguably the greatest quarterback in Texas Tech history. It’s good to see him giving back to his community, a community that also gave Dylan Cantrell, a starting wide receiver, to the Red Raiders. Cantrell’s younger brother, Cameron Cantrell, is a senior at Whitehouse, and is a Texas Tech commit. The Whitehouse connection to Texas Tech runs deep, and isn’t going away after Dylan Cantrell’s graduation.
