Today’s featured Mayfield Sports athlete is Packers offensive lineman Don Barclay (@Barclay_64 on twitter). Barclay was born on April 18th, 1989 in Newport News, Virginia. He lettered 3 years for Seneca Valley High School in Pennsylvania where he was named second team all-conference and first team all-conference twice. Barclay attended West Virginia where he was a 3 year starter for the Mountaineers and tied a school record by playing in 52 career games. In 2010 as a junior he was a 2nd Team All-Big East selection. As a senior in 2011 he earned 1st Team All-Big East and 4th Team All-American honors.

Today’s featured Mayfield Sports athlete is Packer's running back DuJuan Harris (@Ol_sLy_Foxx on twitter). Harris was born on September 3rd, 1988 in Brooksville, Florida. While attending Central High in Brooksville, he rushed for more than 3,000 yards and 45 touchdowns. He also competed in track and weightlifting. Harris went on to college at Troy where he accumulated over 2,600 yards and 27 touchdowns rushing and over 550 yards and 5 touchdowns receiving. After going undrafted in 2011, he was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars where he spent most of the season on the practice squad, but did play in their final 5 games. Harris was released by Jacksonville in August of 2012. After spending part of the 2012 season on Green Bay’s practice squad Harris played in the final 4 regular season games, 2 of which were starts. He also started both of the Packers playoff games where he tied a franchise record by having back-to-back playoff games with a rushing touchdown. Harris missed the whole 2013 season with a knee injury. According to DuJuan, he played running back most of his life just because of his height which is only 5’7” now, but he was always built for the position. His favorite part of playing for the Packers is the way the organization is run; with tons of tradition, an awesome fan base, and the team has faith in their players. If it wasn’t for football he says he’d be helping others, specifically juveniles, because it means a lot to help someone get on the right path and it creates a positive example for kids. His favorite color is black. Being given the nickname “Foxx” at birth because he had red hair, if he was an animal he would of course be a fox! Lastly if he had to describe himself in three words they would be: faith, because he hardly finds himself being worried; finisher, because he doesn’t like to start things he can’t finish; and affable because he is good spirited and easygoing.
