He was a key member on Baylor Football teams that earned back-to-back bowl game invitations, including the 2013 squad that won the Big 12 championship and qualified for school’s first BCS bowl game. Lackey also excelled in the classroom by being twice named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll. He is also a member of Baylor Football’s All-Decade Team of the 2010’s.
Lackey currently serves as a Managing Partner for Massage Heights in Abilene. He and his wife, Cassidy, reside in Abilene with their two children.
