Harlon May Carmel DB Class Of 2024 6'1 190

Harlon May how was your junior season? My junior season was a huge season for me as far as individual success and team success. I made a huge leap from my sophomore season to my junior year by working hard in the offseason. After receiving many awards my junior year showed me that, anything I put my mind to can be achieved. Overall we had a great season as a team reaching the playoffs after 7 long years of no appearances. We didn’t like how we finished off the year because we knew that we should’ve went further. As we approach this season we will lock in and fix the mistakes that caused us to exit the playoffs early. What does football mean to you? Football isn’t just a game to me. I grew up playing football since the age of 7 years old. I really love the game so much and it’s taught me so many things over the years. Football is my peace there’s nothing else I can do that takes my mind off of stuff like football does. Sometimes football can get rough throughout the season but there isn’t anything I would trade it for. What schools have you been talking to so far? Schools that I’m in communication with is NIU, Austin Peay, University of South Dakota, North Dakota State University, Illinois State and Western Michigan. For my recruiting it’s all about relationships and consistency. Out of all of those schools I’ve listed I have the best relationship with NIU because of their consistency of recruiting me.

What should college coaches know about you? College coaches need to know that I’m very self-motivated driven individual who strives to be better every day. They will be getting a versatile, smart, tuff team player who leaves it all out on the field. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? This off-season I am refining my cover skills, improving on my game speed and being more explosive as I make the transition to a safety going into college. How does Carmel look for the upcoming season? We are looking good this year. We will have around 20 returning starters coming back this season. Our class has already played with each other so we know what it takes to win games. We have a lot of younger athletes that are really talented which will have to step up this year, as we are set to play a tougher schedule this upcoming season. What do incoming freshmen need to know about this Carmel program? Coming into the program as a freshman is a culture shift. You will have to learn how to be disciplined on and off the field each and every day because as a team we stress how hard it is to be successful in this conference and within the game in general.
