In Harting, Shippensburg will be getting a rock-steady performer who led Elco's O-line in opening up holes for a punishing ground attack fronted by backs Cameron Strause and Adam Shoemaker this past season. With their run game leading the way, the Raiders enjoyed a resurgent 6-4 season under first-year head coach Robert Miller and came close to securing a District Three Class AAA playoff spot.
A three-year starter, Harting racked up numerous all-star honors during his scholastic career, including this past season when he earned first team All-County status at both offensive and defensive tackle in addition to receiving first-team honors at offensive tackle in Lancaster-Lebanon Section Three.
He was also highly regarded as a team leader by Miller.
"I'm sure every coach always says 'He's a great kid' for every kid, but, for real, he's a great kid," Miller said.
"I am very excited about this opportunity to play at the next level," Harting said. "Shippensburg has a great coaching staff, and they compete at a very high level in the PSAC. I'm looking forward to playing there."
