Eagles Getting A Good One

The resurgence of Warren Harding football in one of the top stories in Ohio high school football this year. The Raiders defeated Cleveland Heights 34-28 last week behind the power running of LeShun Daniels.

The key for Warren Harding returning to prominence in Ohio high school football action directly coincides with the Raiders being more physical on the field.

Tailback LeShun Daniels rushed for 227-yards last Friday, in helping Warren Harding defeat Cleveland Heights 34-28 on one of the the state's top matchups.

"This was a huge win for us, and we showed a lot of heart in fighting back to win," Daniels stated. "I give all the credit to my offensive line, because when they play great, I play great."

"I ran the ball hard tonight, and tried to not let one player tackle me," he added. "I tried to finish runs off the right way, and I tried to punish tacklers. I'm trying to run behind my pads more, and run upright, and tonight that really paid off."

Daniels, 6-foot, 215-pounds, is one of the top power runners in Ohio for the class of 2013. He is committed to Boston College.

"I loved the school and it's a great area of the country," he explained. "Their academic reputation is excellent, and my family loved that. It just felt like the right place for me when I visited there. I took my official visit for the Clemson game, and it was a great atmosphere. I'm going there intending to play next season, and that's my goal."

EVALUATION: Daniels is a prototypical power-running tailback, and a player that gets stronger as the game wears on. He needs to work on getting faster and shiftier, but there is no doubting his ability to play physical football.
