Played in all 12 games as a true freshman, starting four as a defensive end in 2004. Will move inside and is slated to start at defensive tackle next to Kevin Brown and had an excellent spring and a smooth transition. Despite suffering a torn meniscus in fall camp, Harwell didn't miss a game and recorded 22 tackles, 2.5 for loss and also scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery during his freshman campaign. His best day was a 5-tackle, 1-for-loss game against Illinois in his first game on the road.
Could be the top defensive
end on the West Coast next season. Was CIF Def. Player of the Year and
team All-State Underclass as a junior
98 tackles and 25 sacks a year ago.
" I'm pretty quick and I play the whole field. I go after the QB hard and get a lot of sacks. My legs still need to be a lot stronger (BPs 300).
Final SR (14-0, CIF Div 6 champions--beat Orange Lutheran 21-17): 100+ tackles/21 sacksSoph.
Starters...RDT Brigham Harwell, Jr. - 35 tackles, 4 sacks,
11.5 tackles for loss
An end playing tackle, the 274-pound Harwell struggled last year against stronger linemen, but was able to use his quickness to make plays against the slower ones. He played his true freshman year at end before being moved inside, and now he knows what he's doing. However, he'll need to be more physical against the power running teams.
