FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Itawamba AHS running back/linebacker Jamal Shumpert has signed with Itawamba Community College's football program.

Shumpert had 478 tackles in 45 games at IAHS, along with nine sacks and six interceptions.

As a senior, Shumpert totaled 156 tackles.

"The coaches see that I'm a physical player," Shumpert said. "I hit people in the mouth, that's what I do, and that's what they like about me.

"The biggest thing for me is I've got to work on my speed, but I plan to do that. I'm just hungry for the ball, that's all, I've got a knack for being there and that's what I do."
