All-State Wideout Attends Junior Day

Harner attended Penn State's February 28 junior day with his head coach, Michael Lippy. Coach Lippy said his star receiver plans to return to Happy Valley on May 15 for the Nike Camp.

"He's just got unbelievable hands," said Lippy. "He had 60 catches for 800 plus yards. His strongest point is how he can catch the football. He's working hard in the weight room. He was a three-sport athlete his freshman and sophomore years. This year, he's not going out for baseball. He's just going to concentrate on getting bigger, faster and stronger. He's never really worked on his speed to say that he was training to reduce his [40-time], so we're working hard on that right now."

"He got every award I guess you could get for his junior year, from 1st Team Pennsylvania Football News, AA (1st Team All-State), he was the only junior on there that I saw, he made some Supreme Team, Sports Fever Team. He's just the best I've seen around here in fifty-some years."

As of last Thursday, Harner had not yet received any scholarship offers, but his stellar junior year numbers are certain to get the attention of many college football coaching staffs. The Nittany Lions have evidently taken notice already.

"Penn State has called us and that's the reason we were up there. We were one of about 10 people. They have other junior days also. They're one of the best schools around. It's just one of those preliminary things. He's real fortunate to even be part of that process with a school like Penn State, but I think he's capable of it."
