Dad is 6'7" and mom was the state basketball MVP in high school and then a four-year varsity starter for Oklahoma State University.

Summer 2021: Landen is getting his legs back under him after a long road of pain from a stress fracture in his foot. He has been improving tremendously over the summer working hard on his basketball skills with Coach Danley and strength conditioning with Coach Tuatagaloa. He has recently grown another inch putting him a little over 7 feet tall in shoes.

2020: Landen had a nagging injury in my foot through his sophomore year that carried into the summer before his junior year. An MRI revealed a large hidden Navicular Stress Fracture in his foot. He had surgery in July of 2020. 

Landen's junior year was hard for him and his team. He was barely cleared to run and play basketball right as the season started however he/we pushed it too hard with a very sore foot that caused other issues from overcompensating, issues like horrible Osgood-Schlatters pain in his knee then an ankle sprang...   

He played limited minutes in pain his junior year which was basically the last couple of games of the season.
