NC State’s Kelvin Harmon Declares For NFL Draft, Will Not Play in Gator Bowl

Published

on

Raleigh, N.C. — NC State wide receiver Kelvin Harmon has announced that he will forego his final year of eligibility and enter his name in the 2019 NFL draft.

“I have prayed and discussed the path forward with my family and we have decided that it is time for me to proceed to the next chapter in my football life,” said Harmon, a first-team All-ACC choice. “That chapter will be playing professional football in the National Football League.

To this end, I am relinquishing my college eligibility, effective immediately, and declaring myself a professional. I am applying for entry into the 2019 NFL Draft. I will not be playing in the upcoming Gator Bowl, but my support for my teammates will go unchanged.”

“We are proud of Kelvin and all that he’s accomplished in his career,” said head coach Dave Doeren. “We wish him the best as he prepares for the next level.”

Harmon finishes his Wolfpack career with 177 career receptions for 2,665 yards – marks that rank fourth and third in school history respectively. His 1,186 yards in 2018 ranks fourth in school history for a single season.

“The past three years has been the greatest experience of my life,” said Harmon. “When I was recruited by Coach Doeren and Coach McDonald, I was a shy New Jersey kid. Through their nurturing, teaching and support, and that of the entire NC State Coaching and support staff, I feel I have grown into a man.

“My family and I are grateful for this support. The University has become home and will always be for me.

“Thank you all at North Carolina State University, including my faculty, the academic administration and the entire Athletic department for your support throughout this journey.”

NC State’s Dave Doeren Buys Lunch for Rex Hospital Employees

Published

on

Earlier this week, NC State head football coach Dave Doeren bought lunch for 100 employees at Rex Hospital in Raleigh.

The food bought was from Moe’s Southwest Grill.

Rex is where NC State sends their players if they need to go to the hospital.

Alan Wolf, media relations manager for Rex Healthcare, told Jonas Pope IV of the News & Observer how much Doeren’s generosity meant.

“It’s a stressful time to be at the hospital,” Wolf told the N&O on Tuesday. “These are folks on the front line of helping patients through this pandemic. To have an outpouring of support from people like coach Doeren and those in the community who have donated all sorts of food, lunches, meals, it’s been an amazing thing to see.”

“It’s thoughtful, it’s generous and it’s heartwarming,” Wolf said. “When you’re in the hospital for however long your shift is and all of a sudden there’s a boxed lunch that a football coach donated, it means the world.” (N&O)
