From the first team event Shane Buechele attended as a Mustang, he made an impact on his teammates and the coaching staff around him. He inspires each person he encounters to both do more and be more through the example set in his own actions. I’ve said multiple times that I believe Shane is poised to be one of the highest producing quarterbacks this season, and while I stand by this statement, to limit his production to stats and touchdowns would do Shane a disservice. - Head Coach Sonny Dykes


Shane Buechele and his girlfriend, Paige Vasquez, raised $50,000 for the Dallas Mayor’s Disaster Relief Fund for COVID-19.
Back in April the couple decided to start a GoFundMe account so that they could give back to the place they call home. Their GoFundMe account was created to help the city during this time of uncertainty. The pair felt that they could team up and use their voices to rally support and give back to their community.
