Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield Shows Support For Nick Basquine On Twitter

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.
