Harman Accepts Invite to Play in Ohio vs. Michigan Senior Bowl
MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — Central Michigan senior kicker David Harman will join quarterback Ryan Radcliff on Team Michigan for the 2013 Ohio vs. Michigan Senior Bowl, an all-star game featuring the top collegiate football players from the two border states from the NCAA FBS, FCS, DII, DIII and NAIA levels. The fourth annual contest will held on Saturday, April 20 at 1 p.m. at the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

In 2012, Harman was honored as Central Michigan’s Special Teams Player of the Year for the second consecutive season. He connected on 15-of-20 field goals (75%), including four of 45 yards or more, and converted 43-of-44 PATs. Harman established new career longs in field goals twice in 2012, setting his personal best with a 51-yard effort versus Ball State. With 88 for the season, Harman ranked tenth in the MAC in points scored.

Harman’s senior season featured several standout performances. On the road against Iowa, he was 4-for-4 in field goals, including a 47-yard game winner with three seconds remaining. Harman helped set up the drive that led to the go-ahead score, perfectly executing an onside kick that was recovered by CMU. For that performance, Harman earned MAC West Special Teams Player of the Week, College Football Performance Awards’ Specialist Performer of the Week, and the Lou Groza Award “Star of the Week” honors. Harman ended his CMU career in style, breaking the CMU bowl record for longest field goal with a 50-yarder versus Western Kentucky in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.

Joining the Chippewas as a walk-on prior to the 2009 season, Harman has etched his name in the CMU record book in several places. His four field goals versus Iowa are the second most in program history for a single game. Harman’s 15 field goals and 43 PATs in 2012 rank fourth and sixth all-time, respectively. The Traverse City, Mich. native also resides in sixth place on the career list for field goals made (37) and PATs made (98).

Including Harman and Radcliff, a total of four Chippewas earned invitations to appear in all-star games following the 2012 season. Senior safety Jahleel Addae participated in the East-West Shrine Game on January 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla. while senior offensive lineman Eric Fisher took part in the Senior Bowl on January 26 in Mobile, Ala.
