If a D1 cornerback is lucky during his senior season of high school football, he may get to match up once or twice against a wide receiver who has also earned a major-college football offer.
It happens around four times per week for Lassiter cornerback Niles Clark, who has committed to NC State. He goes head-to-head in practice every day against teammate Charlie Hegedus, the Lassiter wide receiver who has also committed to NC State.
Lassiter (7-2) plays Etowah (5-4) at 7 p.m. Thursday in a game that will be broadcast live on WSB-TV digital channel 2.2 and at www.wsbtv.com
“Charlie is fast; he’s the fastest player on our team and could be one of the fastest in the state,” Clark said. “He has a great size at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. He runs great routes, he can stop on a dime and has good hands. He’s a really good wide receiver.”
This is a great recruiting story: It was the speed of Hegedus
