SoCal Coyote News CFL PROSPECT JARROD HARRINGTON PROMISES FAST, FURIOUS, 2017 SEASON Posted on July 28, 2017 2 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr (INDIO) – Playmaker Jarrod Harrington, who reached camp with the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers after leading the SoCal Coyotes in every receiving and return category during an undefeated 2016 season, will resume pursuit of his dream this fall with America’s #1 Developmental Football Program. Harrington, 5-8, 190, a two-time collegiate All-American, delivered an explosion of offense to the Coyotes his rookie year. The Kentucky native and pride of Campbellsville University led SoCal in receptions (35), yards (620), touchdowns (15), and return yards (324). Harrington turned his Coyote game film into opportunity in Winnipeg, where the Blue Bombers documented his 4.38 speed, 330-pound bench press and 390-pound squat. Harrington delivered big game to the SoCal Coyotes – and an even bigger message of hope to aspiring Coachella Valley students Harrington joins a ‘Dream Team’ of returning Coyotes celebrating the miracle comeback of NFL quarterback Todd Marinovich. The Coyotes open September 2 at Shadow Hills Stadium, against the California Sharks. Kickoff is 7 p.m. Alpha Media will broadcast the home opener live on their #1-rated KCLB FM 93.7 ROCKS. All remaining Coyote games are broadcast on sister station ESPN 103.9 FM. In Winnipeg, a last-second addition of an NFL player made Harrington the odd man out. Now he returns to the Coachella Valley as not only one of the fastest Coyotes on the field, but also – just inches short of his dream – furious to prove he can play with anyone, anywhere. “I had the chance to compare my speed, quickness, strength,” Harrington said. “I balled out. I’m NFL-CFL game ready. The whole world can see for themselves September 2.” Harrington personified the Coyotes ‘Faith, Family, Football’ program in 2016, ministering at local churches, teaching in middle-school leadership expos and camps, and coaching wide receivers at local high schools. In college, Harrington played 42 games in his career, amassed 4,450 career all-purpose yards, and was #1 in the country in 2015 with 1,993 total yards. A two-time All-American (2014-15) and All-Mid-South Conference performer, Harrington owns Campbellsville records for single-game all-purpose yards (375); single-game receptions (14); and career receptions (192). Harrington attended Boyle County High School in Danville, Kentucky, where he twice led the Rebels to the Class 4-A state championship and a 30-0 record over two seasons. He was a first-team, all-conference corner, and played in the classic prep Kentucky v. Tennessee All-Star game, where he earned Defensive Player of the Game. The SoCal Coyotes play in the Pacific Coast Division of the World Developmental Football League, which has 32 teams in six countries. -SVP Ron DiGrandi ([email protected]) ABOUT THE SOCAL COYOTES The SoCal Coyotes are the national standard of American developmental football.
