TCU still on top for Mayfield
TCU hosted their most impressive list of visitors for a home game last Saturday in their battle against #2 Kansas State. Among the list of visitors was a familiar name, Baker Mayfield. The Lake Travis quarterback visited a Frogs game for the second time this season and had a good time while in town. "I had fun, it was fun to watch," he said. "It was a great Kansas State team that came in there." Mayfield also visited TCU when they played host to Virginia on a very hot day in late September. The Kansas State game had a much better atmosphere according to the signal caller. "It was a lot of fun, there were so many people and they blacked out the stadium," Mayfield said. "It was really good." Like others, Mayfield was impressed with the Frogs' gutty performance on defense as they held Kansas State to season lows in points and yardage. "I felt they did great, it was against a Heisman Trophy candidate and he runs that offense to perfection. They only gave up 23 points and it's not like they had good field position to defend with," he said of TCU's defense. "I felt like they did really good." It's still up in the air if TCU will take a quarterback in the 2013 class but one thing is for certain; Mayfield continues to remain high on the Frogs' radar. And TCU remains high for him. "They're still number one for me," he said. "I'm still on the radar; I think they'll make their decision later in the year or maybe after the season. They're telling me to stay patient and I've been doing that. It will work out hopefully." While he waits to hear TCU's decision, Mayfield has a couple of other options if the Frogs do not extend an offer. "I still have Florida Atlantic and that's about it," he said. "I also have an offer from West Point (Army)." Lake Travis did well in their first season in class 5A, winning yet another district championship. They'll begin their quest for their sixth consecutive state championship this week in The Opening round of the playoffs against Pflugerville. On the year he's thrown for 2,497 yards with 24 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions. "We're 9-1 and looking forward to the playoffs on Friday," he said. "Numbers wise it's about the same as it was last year but with less interceptions. Hopefully it will stay that way."
