Baker Mayfield (Baker Reagan Mayfield) is an American football quarterback of the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL). Notable for being the first true freshman quarterback to start an inaugural season at a BCS school, he began his college football career as a substitute player for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
He later moved from Texas Tech to Oklahoma following alleged scholarship problems and a lack of communication with coaches. He won the starting quarterback spot in 2015 after being out of the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He has won several awards including the Heisman Trophy, the Maxwell Award, the Walter Camp Award and All-America unanimous recognition for his performance as a senior in 2017.

BAKER MAYFIELD TRANSFER
Prior to his rare conference move to Oklahoma, Baker began his undergraduate career at Texas Tech. The move didn’t go well with Texas Tech fans. This prompted Texas fans to show up for the Oklahoma-Texas Tech match wearing ‘Traitor’ shirts, referring to Mayfield. However, he later traded fan action into what was seen as an excessive joke by showing up at the Texas Tech game wearing the same ‘Traitor’ shirt.

BAKER MAYFIELD HEISMAN
Baker Mayfield won Oklahoma’s sixth Heisman by producing the highest passing efficiency rating in FBS history. He is the first Heisman winner to start his career as an athlete since the NCAA established athletic scholarships in the 1950s. He is also one of seven players to have recorded three top 5 Heismans, joining Army’s Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard, SMU’s Doak Walker, Ohio State’s Archie Griffin, Georgia’s Herschel Walker, and Florida’s Tim Tebow.
Mayfield was born on April 14, 1995 in Austin, Texas. He starred at Austin’s Lake Travis High, taking his team to a 25-2 starter record as they won the 2011 4A State Championship. He finished his training career with 6,255 passing yards and 67 touchdown passes. The 6-foot 1,220-pound double-threat quarterback was overtaken by nearly every BCS school for a scholarship, so Mayfield chose to walk to Texas Tech in 2013, where he immediately won the starting quarterback position.
In his first start, he went through for 413 yards and four touchdowns. He finished his freshman season with 2,315 yards and 12 touchdown passes. Mayfield then chose to move to Oklahoma, where he forfeited the 2014 season due to transfer rules. Mayfield took over the starting spot for the Sooners in 2015 and made an immediate impact, going through 3,700 yards and 37 touchdowns as he ran another 405 yards and seven scores on the ground.
He finished fourth in that year’s Heisman race. He returned in 2016 with another good season, setting the NCAA record with a score of 196.38, with 3,965 yards in the air and 40 touchdowns. He made his first trip to New York as a Heisman finalist, finishing third behind Lamar Jackson and DeShaun Watson. Mayfield saved his best season for last, throwing for 4,340 yards with 41 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions as he led the Sooners to a 12-1 record and a place in the College Football Playoffs.
He once again set the NCAA record for passing efficiency with a score of 203.76. He easily won Heisman over Stanford’s Bryce Love, scoring 2,398 points against Love’s 1,300. He joined Billy Vessels (’52), Steve Owens (’69), Billy Sims (’78), Jason White (’03) and Sam Bradford (’08) as Sooner Heisman winners. He is the first senior to win the award from Troy Smith in 2006 and the first player to win Heisman after moving directly from another FBS program since Doc Blanchard did so in 1945.
