UW This Season: Hardy has potential to be a contributor after switching from defensive end to offensive guard this fall.
High School: Hardy was a First Team All-Mission League selection at Chaminade College Prep as a senior. He helped lead the Eagles to the semifinals of the 2011 CIF-Southern Section Western Division playoffs before losing to eventual champion Arroyo Grande by a score of 36-45. Chaminade Prep finished the season with a 10-3 overall record and a 4-1 conference mark, placing second in the Mission League. Hardy recorded 69 total tackles on the season, including seven sacks. He was voted a team captain as a senior. As a junior, Hardy earned All-City honors, while leading Chaminade to an almost identical season as his senior campaign. The Eagles advanced to the semifinals of the 2010 CIF-Southern Division playoffs, just as they did in 2011, and the Eagles posted a 10-3 record in 2010. He played for head football coach Ed Croson at Chaminade Prep.
Personal: Born March 1, 1994, he is the son of Rosalena Brown and Samuel Hardy. He has two older sisters, India and Carknisha. Hardy was also recruited by BYU, Colorado State and New Mexico State. He is pursuing a degree in economics at UW.
