It’s been a heck of a week for Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
He’s widely regarded as being firmly off the hot seat. His Red Raiders are looking pretty good this season.
And on Wednesday afternoon, it was announced that he’ll be inducted into the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame as the representative from the 1990s.
Kingsbury was a standout quarterback at New Braunfels High School from 1994-1997. In his senior year alone, he threw for over 3,000 yards and 34 touchdowns. The Unicorns went 13-2 in his senior year and made it to the Class 5A Division II semifinals.
Once he got to Texas Tech as a player, Kingsbury continued his stellar play, setting 39 school records. He returned to Lubbock to coach in 2013.
Kingsbury will enter the Hall on May 5 of next year. Former Tech great Bobby Cavazos will be inducted alongside him as the representative from the “1950s and Before” class.
