PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: MASON BUNDY
JUNE 6, 2021 | BY MICHELE RICHARDSON
Mason Bundy signed with the Liberty Flames in December of 2020. He had his choices from Arkansas State, FIU, UConn, UMass, Western Kentucky and several FCS schools. According to Mason’s mom, Dena Johnson, before their family met Michele Richardson and experienced all APB had to offer, they’d never dreamed of getting a football scholarship, much less one from Division I schools. And now, Mason dreams of playing in the NFL, though he’s very committed to maximizing his education at Liberty in construction or business management.
Says Dena, “The NFL was never even a thought in his mind, and even college, we had never even thought he could get a scholarship to college, until we met Michele and she gave us insight and hope. Mason had always worked very hard, and he started working even harder because he knew he could accomplish that. Mason is a strong-willed and strong-minded young man and he wants to succeed.”
Mason is 6’6'' and 280 lbs and plays as a defensive lineman. He came from Fannin County High School in Blue Ridge, GA. Besides his recognition of the role Michele played in his achieving his football recruiting dreams, Mason credits his trainer, his coaches in high school, his parents, and his faith for “having been with me through the entire journey of taking me to camps, training and visits. I am forever grateful to them.”
We look forward to seeing great things from Mason at Liberty as he enters college this fall.
