Ha'Sean "Ha Ha" Clinton-Dix (born December 21, 1992) is an American football safety for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Alabama. Prior to the 2014 NFL Draft, he was rated as one of the top two safeties, along with Calvin Pryor, by many draft analysts, including Mike Mayock.[1]

High school career

A native of Orlando, Florida, Clinton-Dix attended Edgewater High School for his freshman and sophomore years, where he played running back and was a teammate of Mike Brewster. Before his junior season, Clinton-Dix transferred to Dr. Phillips High School, where, in addition to football, also lettered in basketball and track, participating in the 4x100m and 4x400m relay. In football, he was an All-American defensive back and kick returner. Named a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Clinton-Dix was ranked the No. 1 defensive back in his class and sixth-rated player overall.[2] During his senior football season, Clinton-Dix, teamed with All-American running back Dee Hart, led Dr. Phillips to a 14–1 season. The Panthers lost to future-NFL running back Devonta Freeman and Miami Central in the Florida 6A State Championship Game, ending the season ranked #21 nationally by Rivals.com.
