What I Learned Watching Josh Harvey-Clemons

SNELLVILLE – What I learned watching Josh Harvey-Clemons play.

It doesn't take long to notice Josh Harvey-Clemons. But in case you've missed him: he's the linebacker gliding around the gridiron like he's on skates. He's the one in the shotgun in Lowndes' wildcat formation. He's the one who is nearly always the best player on the field when his team plays.

Long, Harvey-Clemons gets to the ball fast. He's not afraid to hit. He looks like the perfect outside linebacker for a 3-4, but he played a lot of what looked like safety for the Vikings against South Gwinnett the night I saw him play. Still, he'd be an outside linebacker in college.

I've not seen too many bigger defenders who can run the way Harvey-Clemons can. He's certainly a sight to see on a Friday night. He finished the game I saw with 12 carries for 56 yards, caught a 36-yard pass and scored a touchdown on offense. On defense he made three tackles for losses. Harvey-Clemons played quarterback, halfback, wide receiver, linebacker, cornerback and safety against the Comets.
