Notable: Seth will play linebacker at Averett, he was a starter there and two-time Greater Neuse River 4A All-Conference selection for Clayton, lining up at middle linebacker. … He wants to improve his footwork because he knows that is the quickest way to make the adjustment to the speed difference in the college game. Lateral movement is also another area he’s working on. .. “My best memories of playing at Clayton are of being with the team at practices and games,” Seth said. “The fun we had laughing and cutting up together.” … One of his most memorable games was the Comets’ win over Corinth Holders earlier this season.
