Young Eagles running backs Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood shine in win over Colts

Clement, a Glassboro High School graduate, finished with 56 yards on a career-high 16 attempts, Smallwood, a Wilmington native, hit the same number on 10 carries and Adams made the most of his first NFL touches with 30 yards on six totes.

Clement and Smallwood had a combined six catches and 54 yards as well.

“Those guys are huge,” tight end Zach Ertz said. “We knew the type of players they are, that’s why no one was really fretting too much. … We’ve got a lot of confidence in those guys. Wendell hits the hole probably the hardest on the team, he’s a really explosive back, and Corey’s a really, really good football player.”

Familiar face hoping to help Glassboro football bounce back from recent struggles

Hagerty has been pleased with his first camp and believes his players are responding to him.

"I know how much Glassboro football means to the community and they know how much it means to me," he said. "I try to express that to them every day, and I think that's sparking some energy for everybody, which is nice.

"The kids have been buying in and it's a great group; I couldn't have stepped into a better situation. From the outside point of view it probably looks like it's going to be a long rebuilding process, but I think people overlook the amount of injuries there were last year. These kids have been well coached and it's not like I'm stepping into a program where nobody knows what's going on. We're healthy, knock on wood, and there's a lot of talent in the program."

VIDEO: Let’s watch Corey Clement’s ridiculous tape from Glassboro High

It’s crazy to think, but it really wasn’t all that long ago when Corey Clement was a young kid in South Jersey tearing up other Group 1 competition. 

Since then, a lot has happened. He went to star at Wisconsin, joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent and then had 100 yards receiving in the freaking Super Bowl! 

In five years time, he went from running over little kids at Glassboro High School to making defining plays in the Eagles’ Super Bowl win.

VIDEO: Glassboro Celebrates Fallen Heroes in Annual Memorial Day Parade

“I say it's getting better. More and more people are out today," said Virginia Johnson, of Glassboro. "We enjoy it. It’s something that we always did." 

Johnson has attended the parade nearly every year going back to when she was a little girl marching in the parade.

Now at 93 years old, the mother of 11 celebrates today for a different reason than when she was young. She has three sons that fought in Vietnam and one, Richard, who lost his life 50 years ago in battle.

“I grew up here and they’re all close friends [and] school mates. We’ve seen them go off to war and some of them didn’t come back," said Johnson. "When you see your own son go over and you go through that [it's hard] ... but I’m thankful the other two came home."
