Shimonek Shines Four Games In

ODESSA, TX (Local 2/Fox 24) - Texas Tech quarterback Nic Shimonek is just four games into his starting role at Texas Tech and he has made an impact.

The redshirt senior has thrown for 1,578 yards and 12 touchdowns and only thrown two interceptions.

Shimonek came to Texas Tech from the University of Iowa - but the red raiders did not have a scholarship available. So the Texas-native started his career as a Red Raider as a walk-on.

He also worked restoring furniture to make extra money before earning a scholarship.
