By: Barry Barnes, Founder

“My reaction when I got the phone call was exciting,” said Liggins via conversation. “Just the fact I get another chance to go prove myself that I belong with the rest of the elite talents out there.”

In a balance offensive attack at Stephen F. Austin, Liggins flourish as he worked his way up from being a special teams ace as a freshman to finishing his collegiate career 31st all-time in receiving yards (1,166).

Liggins has a tremendous leaping ability and great hands as he snatches on-target and off-target balls alike. He is smooth out his breaks with an explosive step. Comparably to former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, Liggins’ footwork is good enough to prevent himself from being jammed on the line of scrimmage.

The fluent 6-1, 210-pound receiver stormed onto the scene at the NFL Regional Combine in the Houston-held trials in February. Liggins was impressive from beginning to end as his agility was the show stopper of the sessions.

Speed is an additional treat for Liggins. He clocked a 4.45 40-time and registered solid numbers in all his tests.

For his Pro Day at SFA, Liggins’ numbers were exceedingly better as he amassed a 4.37 40-time, exploded with a 10’7″ broad jump and leaped 42.5″ in his vertical. The Tyler, Texas standout is in good company as a couple of his teammates are welcomed by other NFL teams in rookie mini-camps as well.

Tyler is a tight-knit community in Texas where football players are extremely competitive, and supportive. Liggins is a close friend of Chiefs newly drafted quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Liggins is looking forward in working with his childhood friend.

“Getting to go compete at camp with my good friend Patrick Mahomes who is from East Texas also,” said Liggins. “We’ve been playing against each other since high school and college. Now, we get a chance to be teammates, which is pretty cool.”

Currently, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Gus Johnson is the only representative of the SFA in the NFL. It is a strong chance that Liggins will join him.

“Overall, It was (the call from the Chiefs) a blessing from God and I thank Him,” said Liggins, humbly.
