Texas Tech-SMU matchup features the last four Lake Travis High School quarterbacks

SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert is one of seven Lake Travis players in Friday's game between SMU and Texas Tech. …

Texas high school powers turning out division one quarterbacks year after year isn't uncommon. But it is pretty rare when the last four from a school play each other in college.

That's the case in Friday night's matchup of Texas Tech and SMU. Each team boasts two quarterbacks from Lake Travis High School in Austin, including the quarterbacks that will start the game.

For Texas Tech, that quarterback is freshman Baker Mayfield, who came to Tech as a preferred walk-on. He beat out Davis Webb, another freshman, to be the Red Raiders' starter after sophomore Michael Brewer, Tech's other Lake Travis quarterback, was sidelined in preseason practice with a back injury.

In his junior season at Lake Travis, Mayfield replaced SMU redshirt freshman Collin Lagasse as starting quarterback. Lagasse is splitting time between running back and wide receiver at SMU.

"Collin was a do-it-all guy for us," Lake Travis coach Hank Carter told the Lubbock Avalanche Journal. "He’s a very strong, fast agile kid. He threw the ball well, but we knew his strength was more in running the ball. Baker actually came in when Collin got hurt the fourth play of the season. He went in and went off. Baker won a state championship as a junior. He’s a mix of Michael and Garrett. He’s not as big but has a strong arm and is a great competitor.”

Garrett is Garrett Gilbert, a senior who will start at quarterback for SMU. After signing with Texas out of high school, he's the quarterback who replaced an injured Colt McCoy in the 2009 National Championship against Alabama. In relief of McCoy as a true freshman, Gilbert threw four interceptions. (The four quarterbacks' record at Lake Travis? 94-8.)

After starting in his sophomore season at Texas, Gilbert transferred following a shoulder injury in his junior season and received a medical redshirt. Last season in his first year as the Mustangs' starter, he threw for 2,932 yards and 15 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

And if that's not crazy enough, there are also three other Lake Travis products in the game for Texas Tech; punter Ryan Erxleben, kicker Kramer Fyfe and wide receiver Zach Austin.
