The man from Munday is a changed player as he goes into the NFL draft

NFL Draft

MUNDAY, Texas — Defensive end LJ Collier of Munday, Texas will likely be among the top picks in the 2019 NFL draft. 

Collier was an MVP for the Munday Moguls and later a Big 12 MVP with Texas Christian University.  

When his name is called, Collier wishes his mom could hear it. She lost a battle with cancer four years ago.  It changed him.
