Harbor Named to Walter Camp Foundation All-America Squad
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Missouri State tight end Clay Harbor (Sr., Dwight, Ill.) is among 26 players, including five from the Missouri Valley Football Conference, named to the Walter Camp Foundation Division I FCS All-America team on Monday.
Harbor was a first-team All-MVFC selection for the third straight season after collecting 59 receptions for 729 yards and 4 touchdowns in 2009. He was also named to the league's Silver Anniversary Team and has been recognized by the Associated Press All-America team each of the past two years.
This season, Harbor had the most receptions by a tight end in the MVFC and second-most nationally. He also led all tight ends nationally in receiving yards per game (66.3). He ended his Bears' career as the school's all-time receptions leader (150) and was third in career receiving yards (1,906). He also finished with receptions in 33 straight games to tie the MSU record and notched four 100-yard receiving games this season and six for his career, which also tie institutional records.
Walter Camp, often referred to as the Father of American Football, first selected an All-America team in 1989. The Walter Camp Foundation was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and continue the tradition of selecting All-America teams for the NCAA Division I Football Bowl and Championship subdivisions.
Harbor is the sixth Missouri State player to earn a spot on the Walter Camp Foundation All-America team and first since 1997. Previous Camp Foundation All-America selections from MSU are: DeAndre Smith (QB, 1990), Bill Walter (DT, 1991), Adrion Smith (CB, 1993), Wayne Boyer (K, 1996), Travis Brawner (K, 1997).
