Penn State fans have a lot to be excited about in Lamont Wade.
The 4-star CB was the top-rated signee in Penn State’s 2017 class and has the potential to make a big impact in Happy Valley over the next four years. But he’s already left his mark on one program in Pennsylvania.
Wade spent his high school career as a star at Clairton, one of the top programs in the state. Wade was a big reason Clairton was state runner-up in 2016, and he talked about his passion for his team and hometown in a recent edition of ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”
On a show titled “Football Forever?” the program took a look at several stories on the gridiron across the country. Wade and Clairton were heavily featured.

Wade spoke about growing up in Clairton, a steel town that has seen jobs disappear in the last 30 years.
“Football is what I’ve been dedicating my life to since I was four,” he said. “I just pray I can find a way out of Clairton and find a way to be successful from it.”
