Penn State Football Commit Liam Clifford Posts Record-Breaking Performance

Three-star Penn State football recruit Liam Clifford continues to make a name for himself at the high school level.

Clifford, the younger brother of Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford, put on a record-breaking performance for St. Xavier High School Saturday night. The wide receiver totaled a jaw-dropping 300 receiving yards and hauled in two touchdowns in the team’s 62-37 win over St. Ignatius.

Clifford set a new school record in receiving yards (300) and all-purpose yards (316) during the blowout win.

He caught the attention of his older brother with one of his two touchdowns, which went down for an 80-yard score.

The Cincinnati native has been arguably the best receiver in the Greater Catholic League this season with his league-leading 43 receptions, 702 receiving yards, and 117 yards per game. Additionally, he ranks second in the league with six receiving touchdowns.

Clifford committed to Penn State last October and is one of five offensive players currently in the 2021 class. He is one of two possible wideouts currently in the class, as three-star athlete Lonnie White Jr. joined James Franklin’s program earlier this year.
