Harrison Clark played in his first baseball game when he was four years old. Since that moment, baseball has been a part of his life. Now he is a senior at Bartlesville High School and preparing for the final season of his high school career. He has invested a lot into his career and knows that along with some great people are what have helped him get to where he is.
“It has taken a lot of hard work to get where I am today,” he said. “I have also been blessed with amazing coaches who have set an amazing culture for the baseball program. I try to soak up all of their knowledge so that I will be prepared for anything that happens during the game.”
Clark plays left field for the Bruins baseball team. He says that while he loves the sport of baseball, his teammates and coaches have made it so much better.
“The highlight of my career is growing relationships with my teammates and coaches,” he said. “Without a doubt, the game wouldn’t be as much fun if I didn’t have them with me.”
Bartlesville High School baseball coach Cody Price says that Harrison brings a lot to the team, including his leadership.
“Harrison is a senior and a three-year varsity starter for us,” he said. “He starts in left field, hits in the middle of our lineup, and is one of the best leaders we have. He also played in the Oklahoma State games this summer at Oklahoma State University.”
Throughout his life Clark says that there have been two people that have always supported him and been in his corner and he would not be who he is today without them.
“My parents are my biggest influences,” he said. “They always push me to be the best version of myself in everything that I do.”
Though he has learned from a number of outstanding teachers, Harrison has one teacher that he enjoys the most.
“My favorite teacher is Coach Briglin,” he said. “He always encourages my class and teaches us how to be good leaders and love other people.”
Along with baseball, Clark is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the youth group at his church.
