Biggest sports thrill: "My last year of rec when I threw a touchdown pass in double overtime to go to the Mini Bowl."

Best advice I've ever received: “Not Dead Can't Quit.”

Last week: Haney threw for 308 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Falcons to a 42-40 victory over Bonneville.

Haney on his performance: “In the first half everything was really clicking on offense and defense (when Clearfield opened up a 35-7 lead). The offense was moving the ball and was making the correct reads and passes. Deondre (Hambric, who caught three balls for 110 yards and two scores) is so fast and the corners pressed close enough that he was able to be past them after ten yards, so we wanted to take advantage of what the defense gave us. Travis (Gravley, five receptions, 120 yards and three touchdowns) had an amazing game and was making plays all over the field. The defense was staying home and playing team football. (In the second half with the Lakers on a potential go-ahead drive late in the contest) I was nervous because we had been falling apart but I had faith that our defense could hold them. The direction we're heading is definitely up. I'm really excited about how team is progressing every week.”

Coach Andre Dyson on Haney: “He's a real smart kid; a 4.0 student. He's very coachable and a good student of the game. He's one of those kids that does everything that you ask. He did a good job of getting the ball to the right guys (on Friday).”

After high school: "I want to go on an LDS (Church) mission after high school. I'd like to go into law enforcement."
