Week Two Players Show: Eagles TE Clay Harbor
Tuesday’s Sportsbash has transformed in to “The Eagles Players Show!”
Each week at Chickie’s & Pete’s in EHT during the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season, we will welcome a different Philadelphia Eagles player to host an hour with Mike, Todd and Ryan.
Our week Two Players Show featured Eagles TE Clay Harbor down for a visit.
This is Harbor's third season with the Eagles as the second string tight end, last season he played in all 16 games racking up career highs in receptions and yardage.
In Week One, Harbor caught the game winning TD from QB Mike Vick to beat the Cleveland Browns:
Part I: Harbor talks about his introduction into football, and revealed to the listeners that he was originally a basketball star at his high-school, until a knee his senior year derailed a potential basketball scholarship. His brother, a LB at Missouri State convinced the Missouri State coaches to give him a chance and the rest his history, Harbor broke school records for receiving .
Part II: Ryan Messick talks with Harbor about the issue of the replacement referees and how they are disrupting the momentum and flow of the game. The referees were such an issue in Sundays game against the Ravens, the game lasted more than four hours. Harbor said you just have to keep playing and let the coaches handle the officials.
Part III: Harbor talks about the devastating loss of one of his line-mates in Jason Kelce with a knee injury. Harbor was roommates with Steve Vallos in training camp, a center who the Eagles just brought back to the team to serve as Dallas Reynolds back-up. Harbor said he is confident in both players to come in and perform well. Also talked about the leadership Mike Vick has shown and what it's like to block for a QB, whom you never know where his feet will take him.
Part IV: Finally, Harbor talked about this weekend's match-up in Arizona against the Cardinals. It's a game between two 2-0 teams and former Eagles QB Kevin Kolb is now back as the starter. That game can be heard on 97.3 ESPN FM, with pregame starting at 3:00.
