Coach Phil Sams said it: “Jared Harka was a 1st team all league guard for us along with honorable mention defensive tackle. One word sums up Jared…awesome! He is such a hard worker and he has talent to go along with that work ethic. Probably the most impressive part of Jared was the fact that he was a starting middle linebacker for us for the first three games and then made the switch to the defensive line. When he made that switch, the results were immediate. He is such a force and moves very well for a lineman. We are so happy to have players like Jared in our program! The best part about Jared is the fact that he is only a junior. Can’t wait for 18!”
Congratulations Jared, and best wishes in the future. The Source is with you!
