PIQUA -- Piqua's Darien Tipps-Clemons stuffs the stat sheet no matter where he is on the field.

Offensively, he rushed for more than 1,600 yards and scored 24 touchdowns as a junior.

But the Michigan State commit might be even more impressive on the defensive side of the football. Tipps-Clemons was among the team leaders in tackles.

"He's up there with the best," Piqua head coach Bill Nees said. "He's different than anybody else because he's the only one that's ever played both ways."

"I'm going to try to get offensive player of the year again and see how much better I can do on defense this year because I have to play it in college," Tipps-Clemons said. 'We're gonna see that and really just ball out with the team last time."
