Al 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.
the conclusion of high school Al received a football scholarship to Arizona State
University where he was once again a standout player. He 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.
was the first round draft pick of the National Football Leagues Chicago
Bears in 1979. Harris brought his excellence for leadership and gridiron greatness
to the Bears.
While earning honors with the Bears, Al learned valuable
insights into team building from a proactive prospective from Mike Ditka and defensive
coach Buddy Ryan. When Buddy Ryan left the Bears to become coach and rebuild the
Philadelphia Eagles, he asked Harris to bring his experience and leadership to
add stability to their young defense. (1986-1988)
Today 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
and his wife Maggie, along with their daughter Emily and son Jason make their
home in the Chicago area.
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.
