With all the tools needed for a great season and future D1 success, LB/RB Joe Harris of George Washington High School in Denver, Colorado checks in as our #7 player.

George Washington coach Steve Finesilver says his linebacker Joe Harris can do it all.  Who are we to disagree?  On the football field, Joe brings all the measurables needed to get the job done. Harris stands 6-3, weighs 210 pounds, runs a 4.6 forty and has a thirty-three inch vertical jump. Joe also competes on the George Washington basketball team and was the state champ in the triple jump this past spring. All this tremendous athleticism transfers to the field, where Harris will return as one of Colorado’s best outside backers.  Offensively, Harris averaged eight yards a carry on limited touches.  In regard to Harris’ ability on the field, coach Finesilver had this to say, “Joe is the kind of kid that can play three or four positions on offense and four or five on defense.  He has vision when he runs, he hits, he can do so many things, he is a complete player.

 

Harris’ rare athletic gifts have drawn the attention of numerous top D1 programs.  Harris holds offers from Colorado, Colorado State and Wyoming. Louisville, Kansas State, Washington State amongst others are courting Harris for his services.  With Harris and a strong group of returning players, Washington hopes to make some noise in 4A this season.
