Lake Travis' own QB Baker Mayfield was chosen as the First Pick of the 2018 NFL Draft June 27, 2018. Mayfield (class of 2013) won the Heisman Trophy in 2017. The Cleveland Browns drafted Mayfield while he and his family watched the draft from his parents home in Lakeway. "I wanted to be surrounded by Family and Friends", said Baker after receiving the call from Browns Head Coach Hue Jackson. Baker's coaches Hank Carter (LTHS), Bob Stoops and Lincoln Riley (OU) watched with Baker from his living room in Austin.
Baker is the first Lake Travis graduate to win the Heisman Trophy, and the first Lake Travis graduate to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Congratulations to Baker and the Mayfield Family from the LT Cavs family!
