    Heath Harding One-on-One

    Heath Harding One-on-One

    Dave Berk speaks with former Miami RedHawks standout defensive back Heath Harding about his football career at the prep and college level, going through the recruiting process and how he learned to overcome adversity during each step of the process that continues to help him today.

    Heath was an All-Mid-American Conference award winner during his career after playing in high school at Dayton Christian where some advised him to leave for a bigger high school program to achieve his recruiting goals.

    During his prep career, Heath rushed for 5,124 yards and 102 touchdowns and was an Ohio Mr. Football nominee. However, college coaches didn't seem to like Heath as a running back and after being advised to camp as a defensive back, Heath earned several scholarships to Division One FBS programs before selecting Miami University.
