Paxton Lynch is one of the top quarterbacks for the 2016 NFL Draft and he is certainly going to be a big-time player in the NFL. With all this hype surrounding him, that must mean his family has some athletic background.
His father, David, played basketball at Texas Wesleyan, but the coolest thing about his college experience wasn’t getting a free education. It was actually his roommate, Mark Calaway, better known as The Phenom, The Deadman, WWE superstar The Undertaker.
Robert Klemko of Monday Morning Quarterback reported the fun fact on Twitter Sunday afternoon.
Fun fact: Paxton Lynch's father played hoops at Texas Wesleyan, where his roommate was a 6-10 kid named Mark Calaway, aka, The Undertaker.

This is pretty cool. You have to believe that Paxton grew up a fan of The Undertaker even idolizes him today. We can only hope that Lynch gets an unsportsmanlike penalty for hitting the Tombstone Piledriver on a teammate as part of a celebration in the NFL.
Speaking of The Undertaker, he is scheduled to appear on Monday Night Raw tonight on USA Network at 8 p.m. EST. That should be a fun night for all involved.
