Clark named HM All-American

JSU safety Carnell Clark was honorable mention on The Sports Network All-American Team announced a short while ago.

There are those close to the program who believe Clark, a converted cornerback, can be an NFL draft pick. Several coaches have said he could be the best they've had. It's a belief they have shared for the last two years.
