In just two seasons, he guided Lake Travis to the 2011 4A State Championship and a 25–2 record. There were six interceptions in his high school football career with 6,255 passing yards.



Michael Brewer, a former Lake Travis quarterback, had a back injury before the start of the 2013 season and was replaced as the starter by Mayfield.

Only-year walk-on Baker Mayfield is the first true freshman quarterback in the history of the FBS to start the season opener at quarterback. Mayfield threw for 413 yards and four touchdowns in his debut start against SMU.

Breaking the school record set by Billy Joe Tolliver, he also came just four short of the NCAA Division I FBS freshman record of 43 completions, held by Luke McCown, in the same game.

Mayfield is the first Texas Tech freshman quarterback to be selected Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week since former Red Raider head coach Kliff Kingsbury in 1999.

It was a matchup of the last four Lake Travis quarterbacks: Garrett Gilbert, Michael Brewer, Collin Lagasse, and Mayfield.
