From Here... A Texas Tech Story


From Here... A Texas Tech Story is a documentary 100 years in the making. When did the Masked Rider really make their first ride? How did Raider Red jump off the page? What does "Tech" even mean? From the barren plains of West Texas in 1923 to the sprawling campus of 2023, learn about the history, traditions, and legacy of Texas Tech University. 

This film is a production by Texas Tech Public Media. It was written, directed, and edited by Weston Davis, a 2017 Texas Tech graduate, and it is narrated by the renowned Lubbock artist, Andy Wilkinson.
