Chad Bumphis is a name that’s been familiar to Tupeloans for a good eight years. As you can read in today’s Journal, the MSU senior receiver made his abilities known a long time ago, and he’s now wrapping up a fine college career in Starkville.
As the story notes, Bumphis wanted to quit football in middle school to focus on basketball. His coach wouldn’t let him, and his friends Justin Bean and Kent Davis made sure he came to practice. It’s obviously worked out for him. Here is video of Bumphis talking about those days.
