Jaden Sumpter is looking to add to his 2 seasons in a row with 1000 yards rushing. In 2022 season he only played 6 games due injury but that isn’t slowing the incoming senior back down.
Head coach Rick Knox says “Jayden has great vision and has elite acceleration when he hits the hole. His legs are always churning and is hard to tackle. He is a natural running back and is primed to have a huge senior season. Is also a true student athlete evidenced by his Ivy offers”.
