Lubbock, TX

Lubbock was founded in 1890 as part of the movement westward onto the High Plains by ranchers and farmers. It was named for Thomas S Lubbock, former Texas Ranger and confederate soldier. This "Hub City" is the largest in the Panhandle: population 225, 856.
It is the birthplace of Buddy Holly and lifelong Raider fans!

We visited the Tech stadium:
Edward showing some school spirit.
 The campus was really nice and spread out with beautiful buildings. Here is a shot of the stadium.
We enjoyed our short stint in the college town!
