BELTON–UMHB safety Cameron Mitton announced on Thursday via Twitter that he will be stepping away from the sport of football. 

“Wanted to thank UMHB for all the great memories and friendships made along the way,” Mitton wrote in a tweet, “but with that being said, I will [be] stepping away from football.”

This news is significant, considering Mitton, a native of McKinney, Texas, saw action in 12 games as a true freshman a year ago. In the season-opening win over Muhlenberg, he tallied three tackles and a pass breakup, and played a key role in the UMHB secondary for the majority of the season. 

He finished the 2022 campaign with 17.0 total tackles, and eight solo tackles. Mitton added 1.5 tackles for loss and a pair of pass breakups. He tallied three tackles in a game twice; against Muhlenberg on Sept. 3 and against McMurry on Nov. 12, and was voted as True To The Cru’s 2022 Defensive Newcomer of the Year

    1. I don’t know much, but I think the new head coach is to blame. Said some outrageous things to the kid. What a shame!
