PROSPER, Texas -- There were times last Friday when four-star quarterback and Texas Tech commit Davis Webb (Prosper, Texas/Prosper) practically looked like a surgeon on the football field, making super accurate passes in a 2-minute offense and completing drives with momentum-shifting plays.
Webb’s play against previously unbeaten Frisco (Texas) Centennial showed why Texas Tech was high on him in the spring. He finished with 256 total yards and five touchdowns in a 38-36 win, keeping Prosper undefeated through five games. Webb threw four touchdown passes, but it was his one rushing touchdown with less than five minutes to play that gave Prosper the lead for good.
“It’s not all me. The receivers were catching the ball and getting the first downs,” Webb said. “I just want to be a great leader and give our team a chance to win.”
Webb’s leadership and poise prove to be strong assets, along with his powerful arm. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound quarterback and Elite 11 participant had offers from TCU, Iowa, Indiana, Utah State and other programs, but he said the offensive productivity at Texas Tech was what he was looking for. He committed to the Red Raiders in May and said this week that his commitment still holds firm.
“I love that their offense has a total commitment to the pass,” Webb said. “We were going pretty fast out there [against Centennial], and that’s what Tech does well. I feel like I can fit into that system and win some games.”
Webb has thrown for 816 yards and rushed for 183 yards this season. More importantly, he has thrown 13 touchdowns and no interceptions.
