When you go head to head with Defensive Lineman Jaylon Hutchings, you already know that he’s going to break right through your offensive line. Hutchings is no joke: this past season he led all other defensive linemen in total tackles. He was destined to play for Texas Tech and has made his fellow Red Raiders proud for the past four years.
Each season, Jaylon proves himself to be a worthy addition to the defensive line. This past year he didn’t disappoint, starting as one of the most notable defensive linemen of the season. In his most impressive season yet, he totaled 47 total tackles, 22 solo, leading all other defensive linemen in total tackles. If he isn’t on the field, you can catch him with a popcorn bucket and a ticket in hand to the latest movie on the big screen.
Other than being one of the most impressive defensive players at Texas Tech, off the field he shows true grit and passion for his education, finishing his undergraduate degree in December 2021 and going on to pursue a master’s at Texas Tech. Community, family, and his team are everything to Jaylon and that is why he makes a great Red Raider and Dark Horse Athlete.
