SOUTHLAND | What will it take to stop Lamar’s Kade Harrington?


After putting up what seemed liked like video game numbers in 2015, fans of FCS football are asking themselves: Can anyone stop Lamar’s Kade Harrington?

As a junior, the Kingwood, Texas native rolled up a school-record 2,092 rushing yards in 2015, becoming just the seventh player in NCAA Division I history to top 2,000 yards in 10 games. When the dust settled, Harrington had run for 21 touchdowns and set per-game Southland records in rushing yards (190.2) and points scored (12.5).

He finished a narrow second to Eastern Washington’s Cooper Kupp in voting for STATS FCS Offensive Player of the Year and was selected by fans as ASN’s FCS Player of the Year. He even had Feb. 16, 2016 declared “Kade Harrington Day” by the city of Beaumont, Texas.

With every team in the Southland keying on the senior, we asked conference coaches what would it take to stop Harrington. Here’s what they said.
