WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

For the second-straight week, former Crowell HS quarterback Mitchell Parsley has earned Offensive Player of the Week honors in the Central States Football League. The Wayland Baptist sophomore threw for 289 yards and 4 touchdowns in his second career start, beating nationally-ranked Webber International Saturday.

For the season, he has 9 touchdown passes to just 1 interception, while completing 52% of his passes for 852 yards for the 3-1 Pioneers.

Red Raiders hoping Vasher gets back on track

T.J. Vasher has had an up-and-down freshman year at Texas Tech. After a strong pre-season showing, he caught two passes in their season opener. But he hasn't seen the field since, with coach Kliff Kingsbury questioning his "approach" last week.

But Monday, junior quarterback Patrick Mahomes II was upbeat on Vasher's role going forward this year.

"As a team, as brothers, we really try to help each other out the best way we can," Mahones said. "And I definitely try to help T.J. out, because he has all the talent to be the great receiver, the All-American here. When you first come in, you don't know how to work. You don't know how to really excel on the field, and he got a lot thrown on him early. I mean, he's taking it in and I feel like you'll see more and more of him as the season goes on."

The Red Raiders (2-1) host Kansas on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.
