Landez Helps The Next Generation

Posted: Updated:

MCALLEN – Sean Landez is sharing the knowledge he’s picked up at Texas A&M-Kingsville with Valley football players looking to take the next step. Whether it’s learning to haul in an interception or how to work your feet, his drills are designed to help players at the defensive back position.

“Being able to break it down one-on-one with these athletes allows me to create a better environment so they can understand at a slower pace and can incorporate it whenever they go back to high school,” said the former Sharyland multi-sport athlete. “I’m just happy to help the younger generation succeed and to know that it’s possible to play at the next level.”

Landez is coming off his best season in Kingsville, where he got to start in a couple of games and also racked up a career-best 21 tackles. His goal for his upcoming senior year is to get more playing time, wherever it may be on the field.

“The free safety position has been my primary position coming out of high school,” said Landez. “However my college coach, Dave Brown, says if you can play DB, you can play corner, strong safety, and free safety. You have to know all the reigns to every position.”

Landez looks forward to showing off his versatility with the Javelinas during spring football drills in Kingsville.
