Texas QB Sam Ehlinger’s family has a crazy weekend of travel ahead

Sam Ehlinger

Being the parents of elite athletes is not always easy, and the weekend of travel that Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger’s family has ahead is a prime example of that.

Ehlinger, of course, will be looking to lead the Longhorns to a Big 12 title in their game against Oklahoma on Saturday. But as Zach Barnett of Football Scoop notes, he isn’t the only member of the Ehlinger family with a big game this weekend. Sam’s younger brother, Jake, is playing in a playoff game on Friday night with his high school in Corpus Christi.

Assuming the Ehlingers want to watch both Jake and Sam play, here’s what their Friday/Saturday travel schedule looks like:

Champagne problems, right?

Rather than drive six-plus hours overnight, the Ehlinger family could always hop on a flight. That might be a better option in this scenario, but we’re sure they have all that figured out. Whatever they decide to do, the exchanges Sam has had with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray are a good reminder than Saturday’s game can’t be missed. The Ehlingers will almost certainly find a way to be at both.
