The Warsaw Eagles have signed veteran quarterback Shazzon Mumphrey for the 2021 season in Poland.
The Eagles won the PLFA, (Polish League of American Football) title in 2018.
Mumphrey spent the 2019 season with the Carlstad Crusaders and got off to a slow start, but despite splitting duties, finished with 873 yards passing and 12 TDs, helping the team reach the Swedish final. He had signed to play for the Geneva Seahawks in 2020 but the Seahawks opted out of the pandemic delayed and shortened Swiss season.
The 6’3″, 225 lb 28 year old Mumphrey, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, spent two seasons at Florida A&M before transferring to the University of New Haven (NCAA Div. II) where he finished his career playing both quarterback and wide receiver. In 2018, he played for the Hildesheim Invaders of the German Football League where he threw for 1,137 yards and rushed for 365. He graduated from New Haven with a degree in Criminal Justice in 2017 before signing with Denmark’s Triangle Razorbacks midway through the 2017 season, helping the team reach the Danish semifinals.
