Clenney, Wolves eye 6A title

By Mark Oliver

After falling to rival El Dorado in last year’s playoffs, Lake Hamilton reloads for another shot at the Class 6A title. 

Led by one of the top tacklers in the state in senior linebacker Izic Clenney, the Wolves are hungry to bring a championship back to Garland County. 

“Last season went pretty well for us,” Clenney said. “I finished as the second-ranked junior in the state in tackles. This season, my goal is to be a better leader for my teammates. When it’s all over, I want to be able to say that I did everything I could to help my team achieve its goals.”

“Izic works hard every day and inspires his teammates to do the same,” Lake Hamilton Head Coach Tommy Gilleran said. “He wants to help others, and he wants the best for everyone. Last season, he was our leading tackler, and this season, I expect him to make All-State.” 

Hard work is a quality that has driven Clenney on the field since day one. 

“I’ve played football since I was little,” Clenney said. “Being undersized has always been a challenge for me, but it has made me want to work harder.” 

After graduation, Clenney hopes to continue his athletic career at the collegiate level. 

“I want to be remembered as an overall good person on and off the field,” Clenney said. “Inspired and led by God, my plans are to attend college for sports and pursue a career as a firefighter.”
