Big time high school rivalry carries over to Baylor-Texas


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Friday night, Westlake beat Lake Travis 44-14 in a game that extends to Saturday’s Baylor-Texas game. 

Longhorn quarterback and Westlake product Sam Ehlinger will be opposite Baylor quarterback and former Lake Travis Cavalier Charlie Brewer. 

Both are true sophomores that call themselves friends since middle school. But that’s just the start. 

Ehlinger has missed the last three matchups with Brewer, he didn’t play in last year’s Texas-Baylor game and missed both Westlake-Lake Travis games in 2016 both won by Lake Travis. 

Brewer is former teammates with Texas tight end Cade Brewer (no relation) and Texas kicker Cameron Dicker. 

Then there’s Texas defensive end Breckyn Hager who after Saturday’s win over Oklahoma acknowledged after Dicker’s game-winning kick: “Now I can say, Lake Travis, you all are alright.”
