Coaches Comments: Clint earns his nickname “Baby Bus.” It is such a luxury to have a back in our arsenal who we are confident can pick up a yard when we need it, is also able to break the big runs because of his unique strength and speed. Clint currently reps 225 lbs on the bench press for an impressive 20 reps, deadliest 585 lbs, and squats 550 lbs. His speed, size, and strength make him a unique weapon in our offensive arsenal.

As good as he is on offense, his most natural position is on the defensive line where his powerful explosiveness and speed makes him unblockable at times. Clint is simply a few inches away in height from being a highly sought after defensive lineman at the next level.

I can also say with a confidence that he is probably the strongest high school kicker in America.

We are very excited to not only see what is in store for Clint’s senior season, but also beyond the high school level.
