Sterling Shepard and Baker Mayfield played one season together. It was a pretty great one. The 2015 Oklahoma Sooners lost only one regular-season game, won the Big 12 and made the College Football Playoff, where they fell in the semifinals to Clemson.

Shepard is in his second season with the New York Giants. Mayfield is still at Oklahoma. This year, as a senior, Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy and will get a second crack at the College Football Playoff. Oklahoma takes on Georgia on New Year's Day in the Rose Bowl.

Shepard, while speaking with ThePostGame at a recent New Era Cap event, shared how impressed he is with his former college teammate.
