Breakfast: Mumphery assists in Flint relief


Texans wide receiver Keith Mumphery was one of 30 Michigan State athletes and former athletes to assist in relief efforts for the city of Flint, Michigan.

"Right now it's a time of need," Mumphery said via the team's website. "It's a crisis and the water's bad so I feel like Spartans can come back in and help uplift the spirit of the community. I feel like with us uplifting the spirit of the community, it helps create a big change here."

The city of Flint was declared to be in a federal state of emergency last month after learning its drinking water contaminated with lead, posing a serious health danger for residents and children.

Student-athletes from football, cross country and track, swimming, diving, rowing, and the Spartan Marching Band, along with student group leaders and athletic department staff members helped distribute bottled water and recycling bags on Friday, Feb. 5.

"I feel good to be back," Mumphery said. "To come back and do this, it warms my heart. This is how my mama raised me. To come back and help give back, and actually not be going to school here at the same time, it's a blessing."

Mumphery, who spent four years at Michigan State (2010-14), saw action in all 16 games as a Texan with three starts as a rookie last season. He caught 14 passes for 129 yards and contributed on special teams as a returner on 36 punts (7.8 yard average) and 14 kickoffs (24.1 yard average).
