Player Spotlight: Landon Mumphrey C/O ’23 Cornerback

Landon Mumphrey is a standout junior playmaker for Sachse High School, which is based out of Garland, Texas.

Playing on the defensive side of the ball for the Mustangs, Mumphrey sees time at the cornerback position. With his frame, 6’0, 170 pounds, he could easily be a talent that adds value to a program at the collegiate level.

A dual-sport athlete, Mumphrey is also a member of the track and field team at Sachse, where he competes in a number of events, including relay running and long jumping.

Competing in track and field is already paying off for Mumphrey, as he runs a 4.43 in the forty-yard-dash, as well as positing a 9’3 broad jump and a 43 inch vertical! He also takes care of the weight-room, with his 315 pound squat max!

Though his sophomore season may not have gone according to plan, Mumphrey still felt like the team did well overall, and is hopeful for an even better junior campaign.

“Things were difficult with Covid last year,” Mumphrey said. “Trying to learn everything in the small amount of time that we had was difficult, but we pieced it together as a unit, and even made a playoff run out of it.

“I feel like this season will compound off of last year, and be even better. We have some new faces in the building as far as coaches go, but the team chemistry is insane. We have already proven we can work well together, and I feel we could even win state this year!”

Every player has certain traits that set them apart from other athletes, and aside from his obvious blazing speed, Mumphrey is no different.

I feel like a big thing for me, is just the length that I have for the defensive back position,” Mumphrey said. “Now that I have more experience, I can put my full body of work together, and create a masterpiece.

“As a player, wins and losses come, that is inevitable. At my position, it happens a lot because it is one of the toughest on the field, but I always find a way to make great things happen, and I am beyond excited for this journey and those that support me through it.”

During those times, Mumphrey is able to lean on the reasons that he plays the game in the first place, and that keeps him going.

“My way for playing this game is to be able to stay active, and just to compete,” Mumphrey said. I like to keep myself busy, and football is a great way to do just that.

“I also like to think that I have created a special bond with the coaching staff, and I would do anything for them, like they would for me. They have taken me and molded me into the player that I am today. I could not ask for better people in my corner.

One of the most impressive stats that Mumphrey possesses, is his GPA, which currently sits a 3.4, and is more than enough to qualify him to play at the next level. He is the kind of a guy that truly understands that importance of balancing the student-athlete life.

In addition to being a great athlete and student, Mumphrey has won accolades in other aspects of his life as well, including: Outstanding Soloist, National Society of High School Scholars, Homecoming Duke, Outstanding in Mathematics, Choir, English, Beta Club Student Council President, Over the Top Award, Most Outstanding Jumper, Comeback Player of the Year, Pentathlon, 4-year All Region Choir Member, Top 4by4 Member in the district and Area Christian character Award, Perfect Attendance and A-Honor Roll.

Man, is there anything that this guy cannot do?! To the schools that recruit him in the future, just know you will be getting a well-rounded young man!
