Al Harris is the honoree for Mt. Holly Pro Day 2007

Al HarrisAl played his first two years of high school football at Rancocas Valley Regional High School for Coach Bill Gordon where Al was a standout player. Unfortunately RV was not to have Al for his upperclass years because Al's Dad, a career Air Force man, was transferred to another base.

At the conclusion of high school, Al received a football scholarship to Arizona State University where he was once again a standout player. Harris became the first unanimous All-American selection in Arizona State University history. As a college senior, at the position of defensive end, he was a finalist for the prestigious Lombardi and Outland trophies.

BearsAl was the first round draft pick of the National Football League’s Chicago Bears in 1979. Harris brought his excellence for leadership and gridiron greatness to the Bears.

While earning honors with the Bears, Harris learned valuable insights into team building from a proactive prospective from Mike Ditka and defensive coach Buddy Ryan.

EaglesWhen Buddy Ryan left the Bears to become head coach with the task of rebuilding the Philadelphia Eagles, he asked Harris to bring his experience and leadership to add stability to their young defense. (1986-1988)

Harris wound up playing 11 NFL seasons, nine with the Bears and his final two with the Eagles. At 6-5, 250 pounds, Harris was agile and athletic. He recorded 20.5 sacks, 10 fumble recoveries and four interceptions.

Since retiring from the NFL, Al is a successful motivational speaker bringing his experiences, methods, mission and ministry to audiences all across America. He has served churches, banquets, companies, corporations and charities, as well as doing chapels for professional baseball and football teams.

Al has also worked as a National Account executive for a software company called LRSSPORTS and has coached for the San Francisco 49ers.

We salute Al for his continued involvement both on and off the field and are proud to have him as the Mt. Holly Pro Day 2007 Honoree.
