VIDEO: Baron Batch Talks Football and Art

Few Texas Tech alumni are more interesting than former Red Raider running back Baron Batch. After spending a few years with the Pittsburg Steelers, Batch has called it quits in favor of a more creative career path.

Since giving up football to be a full-time artist, Batch has made a name for himself not only as a painter and author, but as an entrepreneur, chef and motivational speaker, just to name a few.

Yesterday, Texas Tech Public Broadcasting 89.1 KTTZ posted this interview to their YouTube page, asking Batch about his life these days and what made him choose art over football.

Not only is Batch one of the most interesting Red Raider personalities, he’s humble, hardworking and inspirational. Hopefully we continue to hear of his success for many years.
