Clopton Twins from Pick Central

The good about playing in one of the state's top football programs is you win alot and have fun. The bad about playing in that program is a really good underclassman might have to wait his turn. So goes it for the Clopton twins at Pickerington Central. Both are in the class of 212.

Addison Clopton, a 5'10-172 running back/slot receiver has excellent burst. Excellent vision. Strength, with good balance. On video, stays on his feet and does not go down on first hit. At the Lewis Center combine, ran 4.4/40 and 4.47/proshuttle. Verticaled 33'5 and broad jumped 9'5. Class act who is a tremendous competitor.

Adam Clopton, at 5'11-175 plays on the opposite side of the ball. Tough run support guy at SS with the speed to cover man to man deep. Also has the burst. On video has excellent closing speed. Finishes plays. Plays fast. Gets pad under pad in open field. At the Lewis Center combine ran 4.44/40. Verticaled 34'1 and broad jumped 9'8. Also ran 4.4/proshuttle. Just like his brother, class act who is a tremendous competitor.

The twins are very similar to the Davis twins(Dimitrious and Chris) from Austintown Fitch. They are tough, fast, and excellent character. If the "Clopton boys" have the senior year that the "Davis Boys" had last year, "OH MY!" The wait will have been worth it.
