Whit Muschamp Putting Up Big Numbers in First Year as Baylor Quarterback
Chattanooga-(WDEF-TV) Baylor plays for their first state title in 11 years Thursday night.
Quarterback Whit Muschamp has been a big part of the Red Raiders success.
Whit of course is the son of Georgia assistant Will Muschamp.
Whit has talent and that football savvy of a coaches son, guiding a Baylor team that has scored 30 or more points in every game this season.
When Erik Kimrey got the Baylor head coaching job back in February, it didn’t take long for Whit Muschamp to join him.
Said Kimrey:”Well I coached Whit when he was a freshman at Hammond (South Carolina). I’ve known him since he was in sixth grade. Known the Muschamp family. Coached Whit’s older brother Jackson. When the news broke that I was coming to Baylor, Coach Muschamp reached out and said hey, do you need a quarterback?”
When Muschamp first saw the Baylor campus.
He wondered if he was still in high school.
Said Muschamp:”I thought I was at Hogwarts to be honest. I mean it’s incredible. It’s on the river. The mountains are crazy.”
Muschamp can’t cast spells like Harry Potter, but he’s definitely a wizard with the football.
Said Kimrey:”I think it starts with his temperament. He’s just kind of a cold-blooded assassin”
Muschamp’s numbers have been lethal.
How bout 2,935 passing yards with 27 touchdowns and only two picks.
One of which came on a Hail Mary.
Said Kimrey:”Of course he has got natural instincts. He has been around the game his entire life. You can tell that, and he’s an incredible passer of the football.”
Muschamp knew it would be challenging playing in the Division two, Triple-A classification, but that was his desire.
Said Muschamp:”It’s kind of what I wanted coming here. Just playing good competition every week. It’s what you want and practicing with everybody. You know practicing with a lot of players that have D-one offers. I mean it has been great.”
Playing the best has helped Muschamp become his best.
Said Kimrey:”People also sleep on his athleticism, but he can extend some plays.”
