Drew Lock is mature beyond his years. Many Mizzou fans may feel even more mature than Texas head coach Tom Herman who was caught on video mocking Lock’s celebration after his third quarter touchdown pass.
Lock and his teammates created a celebration and a slogan after a touchdown, which came about from the rap song, “Secure the Bag,” Lock goes through his routine after each touchdown pass by pretending to strap on an invisible backpack. Here was Lock’s reaction after his first pass of the second half went for a 79 yard touchdown.

At the end of the Texas Bowl, Longhorns coach Tom Herman was shown celebrating/mocking with his players a move similar to Lock, but positioning his hands in the “Hook ’em” pose.

After the game, Lock said “When the head coach is mocking your dance move, you must be doing something right.”
Lock was asked if it was a classless move and he certainly understood how Herman’s players would appreciate the coach connecting on that level, but Lock noticed as well.
