2014 graduate Lane Clark talks college football

From a Hays High Indian to a Tennesse State University Tiger, HHS graduate Lane Clark has kept his loyalty with football through the years.

Clark said he started playing football when he was in third grade. Since then, he has played practically every position on the field but any sort of lineman.

Starting in third grade and going through fourth, Clark played for many different rec, traveling, and school teams. In fifth and sixth grade he played for the Clay Center Bengals. In seventh and eighth grade, he played for the Clay Center Middle School.

“In high school, I obviously played for HHS,” Clark said.

Throughout Clark’s few years at TSU, he has made many accomplishments.

“My biggest accomplishment so far would be making all-conference this year,” Clark said.

Clark made the 2016 All-OVC first team, 2015-2016 OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, and 2014-2015 OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

Choosing the college you want to attend can be very hard, but Clark doesn’t think the choice to go to TSU was very hard for him.

“TSU was a great fit for me,” Clark said. “When I visited here in the spring of my senior year, I decided real quick that this is where I wanted to go.”

While at TSU, Clark is studying for a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. After graduating from TSU, Clark plans to attend medical school and go into orthopedics.

Clark has had many supporters throughout his years of football.

“My biggest supporters are definitely my parents,” Clark said. “I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish these things without their support and everyone else’s.”
