Stamps Talks Mullen In Home

Warren Central corner Chris Stamps was one of the first in state players to commit to Mississippi State for the 2015 signing class. Since making his pledge, Stamps has remained True Maroon and loyal to the home state Bulldogs. A few days ago, Stamps sat down with Coach Dan Mullen and talked about what to expect in Starkville.

"Coach Mullen and Coach (Greg) Knox came to see me," explained Stamps. "They came and visited with me and my parents and it was a great visit. Coach Mullen told me about how hard he expects everybody to work and what he expects from his players.

"He told me that there are going to be times my first year that I am not going to like him. He said he is going to push me to be the best player that I can be and that when I am a senior I am going to love him."

The talented corner reports that his family had some things to discuss with the Bulldogs' head man as well.

"My mama told Coach Mullen that she was not going to release me to just any coaches," said Stamps. "She said when my recruitment started she wanted to know that the coaches I was going to be playing for were good coaches and good people.

"When my brother was playing in college, he had some bad experiences with some of his coaches. He had some that told him that if they had a bigger corner that they wouldn't have been playing him and things like that. She didn't want me to have to deal with all of that type of negativity."

Stamps reports that he and his parents were both happy with the time they spent together in home with the Bulldog coaches.

"It was awesome," said Stamps of the time spent talking Bulldog football. "Coach Mullen told me to keep working hard and to stay on top of my grades. They set up my official visit to. I am going to be going in there on January 17th."

Stamps is eager to spend some time on campus with his future teammates. He will get the chance to get a taste of that later this week.

"I am looking forward to going to All-Star practices," said Stamps. "That's going to be a lot of fun and we have a lot of us playing in that game (Mississippi/Alabama). I am really excited about playing with everybody this week.

"I feel like we have a team that can go and win the game. It's time for us to get another W down there."
