Clarion's Clark out for season

| Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, 1:26 a.m.

Former Highlands standout Gage Clark still has not played a down of college football. And he's been to two different schools.

Clark, a quarterback who transferred from St. Francis (Pa.) to Clarion, was ruled ineligible for this season because he hasn't met academic requirements.

He completed training camp at Clarion and was expected to be redshirted, but the latest development has him thinking ahead to next season.

β€œIt's a messed up situation and it caught everyone off guard,” Clark said. β€œI was unaware of the whole situation. I wish I would have known more and maybe I would have stayed longer at St. Francis. I just wasn't happy there.”

Clark has been told he can play next season and will retain four years of eligibility.
