Texas WR Lil’Jordan Humphrey likes dominating DBs
The New Orleans Saints opened their preseason schedule on Friday against Minnesota.
Their best play all night might have come from a former Southlake Carroll Dragon.
Lil’Jordan Humphrey, an all-purpose back during his time at Carroll and the University of Texas, finished with two receptions and 42 yards, and scored his first touchdown in a Saints uniform.
With under nine minutes left, quarterback Taysom Hill hit Humphrey up the middle and the 6-foot-5 play-maker went on to break two tackles for a 33-yard TD that brought the Saints within 27-25.
Humphrey signed as an undrafted free agent in April after declaring for the NFL draft a year early. Humphrey chose to forego his senior season at UT after he had 1,176 yards receiving and nine touchdowns on 86 catches.
He was a standout running back at Carroll where he was a two-time all-state selection. He was first-team all-state by the TSWA as an all-purpose player, and second-team by the Associated Press as a running back in 2015.
