Devin Clar
Banner Graphic/Joey Bennett

Devin Clar is a Greencastle senior who played football and basketball for the Tiger Cubs this year.

Banner Graphic: Talk about football this season and the great turnaround you had.

Devin Clar: “It was an amazing way to end my high school football career. I take great pride in how well we turned our season around, and the hard work that we put in. The coaches brought everyone together, and it was just a great season.”

BG: What other things do you do when you have time?

DC: “We did a Polar Plunge fundraiser [in conjunction with North Putnam] to help out Special Olympics. I volunteer at soup kitchens and places like that. I like to relax and watch comedy movies — Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are two of my favorites — and play video games when I have some down time. I listen to different genres of music, just depending on how I’m feeling. I started fishing since we moved in my sophomore year. We have property with a pond, and I like to fish but don’t do it as much as I could.”

BG: What is something you have never done that you would like to do someday?

DC: “Hiking up a big mountain would be really cool to experience. To push yourself and do it with other people so you could have that experience together.”

BG: What are your favorite and least favorite foods?

DC: “My favorite would be chicken alfredo. My least favorites would be the spinaches or cauliflower kind of things.”

BG: What is your greatest fear?

DC: “Not being successful, and losing the desire or will to be great at whatever I put my mind to.”

BG: What are your plans for after high school?

DC: “I am going to go to the University of the Cumberlands in Kentucky and play football and major in physical therapy.”

BG: Talk about your experience at Greencastle.

DC: “The classes here have really prepared me well for college. I would say Mr. Wheeler’s advanced English class has me well prepared for the essays I’m going to need to write in college. It’s been a great experience here. I have learned to keep working hard at things even when they’re not going well. Coach Meyer has also been there for me in everything. If I have the opportunity, I would definitely come back to live here someday.”
