Sam Brumfield receives offer from Western Kentucky

Northwest Mississippi Community College linebacker Sam Brumfield has played a great season so far, leading the nationally-ranked Rangers in tackles. Now, the Pearl High School graduate has racked up his first NCAA Division I offer. Earlier this month, Brumfield received an offer from Western Kentucky University to potentially continue his football career.

Western Kentucky is coached by Tyson Helton and competes in Conference USA. The Hilltoppers have been one of the more successful programs in the conference, making eight bowl games in the last ten seasons. They have a 3-3 record at the time of this writing.

Brumfield has 47 total tackles (26 assists, 21 solo) in six games this season. He has also accumulated 3.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and four quarterback hurries.

In his career so far, Brumfield has tallied 150 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss,  nine sacks, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. He helped the Rangers advance to the junior college playoffs with 93 tackles last season, which was a team-high in that category. He is also a two-time Academic All-American.

At the time of this writing, Brumfield and the Rangers have a 6-0 record and are ranked number-four in the national rankings. They have won back-to-back state championships and are in prime position to make a second straight  appearance in the national playoffs.
