Coach Russell Smith:

“He’s very athletic, he plays multiple positions. I put him at quarterback because he’s the best athlete on the team. I’ll also put him out at slot where he can really go to work. He knows how to make plays.”

Projected to play slot receiver in college:

“Harding runs the flex-bone, so they’re looking at him as one of the wing guys.”

Team leader:

“We’ve never had a problem out of him. He’s a leader, he’s not a follower. He leads the team. He steps up. He’s one of the captains.”
