Baker Mayfield has his teammate's backs, on and off the field.
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield came to the aid of wide receiver Nick Basquine on Twitter this afternoon. Basquine released a powerful statement in support of his mother, who raised him alone.
Basquine has no relationship with his biological father, Anthony Stafford, a running back for Oklahoma from 1985-88.
Basquine certainly is an example of perseverance. After walking on to the OU team in 2014, he's emerged as a contributor. This season, he's made 12 receptions for 196 yards and two touchdowns. His mom seems to have raised a good son.
Props to Mayfield, as well, for standing with his teammate.
