NEW KENSINGTON, PA. -- "Who the heck is that kid?" If I had a dollar for every time I heard that when DaRon Clark made a spectacular play at the NLA 7on7 I could retire. The relatively unknown prospect stole the show.

Over the years, I have seen more camps than I care to count, but never can I remember a player just showing up out of nowhere and making so many spectacular plays. Pittsburgh (Pa.) Perry Traditional Academy wide receiver/safety DaRon Clark did just that.

With two games going on at a time, you could never take your eyes off the field that Clark was on. You literally just never knew what he would do next.

In his teams last game, Clark made a leaping one handed grab and he just snatched the ball out of the air. There was an easy three-feet between his cleats and the ground. Clark landed out-of-bounds, but it didn't matter as the whole stadium erupted in cheers.

We spoke with Clark afterwards and he told us that he hasn't gotten a letter from any school to this point. He said he only played defense last season. We're anxious to see Clark this weekend at the PA Swag/IMG 7on7 to see if he can repeat last weekends performance.

Lichtenfels is in his 8th year with Scout.com and has developed into one of the most respected scouts in the business.
