“B” Association to Honor Former Baylor Safety Byron Landor

The “B” Association and Baylor Athletics will recognize former Baylor safety, Byron Landor, as a 2021 Baylor Football Legend at the Baylor vs Iowa State game on September 25th at McLane Stadium.

Landor earned two varsity letters for the Bears from 2009-10 playing in the safety position. Arguably one of the most underrated safeties in Baylor football history, Landor earned 1st team All-Big 12 honors in 2010 by the Associated Press. In addition, he was twice named All-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week that season, making him the first player in BU history to earn this honor more than once in a single season. He was one of just a few players who started all 13 games in his final season with the Bears. After collecting 127 Total Tackles in 2010, Landor was voted the team’s Most Valuable Player by his fellow teammates and coaches.

In his senior season, Landor totaled team-high 127 tackles (78 solo), team-high three fumble recoveries, five pass breakups, one interception, one sack, one hurry and one forced fumble. He averaged 9.77 tackles-per-game ranking him fourth in the Big 12 and 24th nationally– No. 2 nationally among non-linebackers.

Landor now serves as the Director of Business Development & Contract Administration at Canyon Creek Behavioral Health in Temple, TX. He lives in Leander, where he resides with his fiancée, Jamey, and his son, Vance. 

Please join us this Saturday in giving a warm Baylor welcome to 2021 Football Legend, Byron Landor.
