The "Battle of the Beach" featured some of the top prep quarterbacks in southern California, including Max Wittek, Michael Eubank and Trevor Gretzy. In addition to leading his team to the title, Clements earned praise from Dan Albano of the Orange County Register who pegged him the No. 1 QB there. Albano cited Clements' quick release and ability to make a wide array of throws.

As a junior in 2009, Clements (6-1 ½, 190) led La Habra to the CIF SS title as he completed 120-of-191 passes for 2,150 yards, 29 TDs and 5 INTs.
