Cade Harkins wins the one-on-ones

(Continued)

McALESTER —

“I learned you don’t get very many days off,” Harkins said.

When not playing football, Harkins said he enjoys playing video games and spending time with friends. Harkins played on McAlester’s inaugural soccer team last spring, and he said he’s considering between soccer and baseball this spring.

“I got a little faster, but I did slim down a little bit,” Harkins said of his 2013 soccer season.

Harkins was one of the soccer team’s best offensive players last year, and he credited his success to the physicality he brought to the striker position.

That physicality comes from football. Because for Harkins, to win the one-on-one battles downfield, sometimes you just have to out-muscle the other guy.
