Mumford hires Aubrie King as basketball coach

Aubrie King has been named head basketball coach at Mumford, his high school alma mater.

King was a four-year All-Brazos Valley selection as a player for Mumford, when the Mustangs were state qualifiers for three consecutive seasons.

In his last three seasons in high school, Mumford lost three games and advanced to the state final each of those years for then-Mustangs’ coach Chris Sodek.

Mumford won the Class 1A Division I state championship in 2014, finishing the season with a 39-1 record. King was named to the all-state tournament team for the third straight time.

Mumford was also 39-1 the previous season, with the only loss in the state championship game against Dallas A+ Academy. Mumford’s 37-1 season in 2012 concluded with a championship game loss to Clarksville.

King was four-time all-state selection by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, and the two-time Class 1A Player of the Year. He represented Mumford in the Texas High School Coaches Association’s all-star basketball game in 2014.

King is Mary Hardin-Baylor’s single-season record-holder for free throw shooting percentage (.967) and the school’s career record-holder for 3-pointers made.

King has served as Chris Sodek’s assistant coach in Flatonia.
