In the class of 2019 Eddie McClendon will be a name you want to be looking out for. A physical specimen who dominates at 6’1″, 175 lbs. Eddie rarely leaves the field when the Mesa High Jackrabbits in Mesa, Arizona are on offense.
Eddie plays wide receiver and will use his athletic ability to punish you with his size and strength. He is used out wide as a second and will even line up in the backfield as a lead blocker. He is fast enough to beat you to the corner on jet sweeps or beat your cornerback on a go route.
He also uses his body well when shielding the ball from defenders on slants and in routes. Eddie is a member of the varsity basketball and a letterman in the track program, which helps his superior leaping ability to high point balls in the endzone.
The 2019 product is an Honorable Mention All-East Valley selection at WR. As Eddie progresses over the summer, he will be looked upon to play a bigger role as a two-way player and a leader in the defensive backfield. Eddie is popular and well-liked by his peers, teachers and coaches. He is a focused young man who sports a 3.5 GPA.
He also participated in two community service projects. A school campus clean-up and a cemetery clean-up for the City of Mesa. Eddie will continue his hard work in the off season. He will be participating in various camps and 7 on 7 events.
