Clever football By The Numbers — Robinson shining on both sides of ball


Clever's first five weeks by the numbers: 


  • Wide receiver Xavier Robinson is living up to his pre-season hype. Opponents know the super soph is Clever's top receiving target, but he has still hauled in 22 receptions for 228 yards, an average of 10.3 yards a catch. 



  • The combined record of Clever's first five opponents is 14-11. Sarcoxie is 5-0, Forsyth 4-1, Strafford 3-1, Pierce City 1-4 and Springfield Central 1-4.



  • Clever's defense is allowing an average of 39.8 points a game. The lowest season average for points the Jays have given up is 41.8, set in 2020.


0-5 vs. 0-5

  • Somebody will break into the win column this week, with Clever (0-5) traveling to fellow Mid-Lakes Conference member Skyline (0-5). Skyline enjoyed four straight winning seasons from 2018-2021, but is 2-13 since.



  • Linebacker Austin Scott has been a disruptive defensive force, racking up seven stops in the opposing offensive backfield. He has five TFLs and a pair of quarterback sacks. Altogether, Scott has 35 tackles, to go along with two blocked kicks and one pass broken up.

  • Robinson hs starred from his safety post, as well. He has collected three interceptions and 30 tackles.



  • Aven Guajardo tops the Jays with 40 tackles.



  • Clever's defense has totaled 22 TFLs.



  • Quarterback Lane Mendenhall has throw for 91 yards while completing 16-of-29 passes for 55.2-percent accuracy.
