Raymont Harris – Day #34

Written August 2nd, 2009 by Jeff

34 - Harris

Raymont Harris graduated from the Ohio State University in the Top 5 of all-time Buckeye running backs. His 2,649 yards were mostly from bowling over defenders, and generally proving the cliche’ about “running downhill”.

Since his departure from Columbus, five more backs have since passed him on the all-time yardage list (Eddie George, Pepe Pearson, Michael Wiley, Antonio Pittman and Beanie Wells), but his rank among the Top 10 will likely be untouched for some time (unless Terrelle Pryor rushes for 1k each of his sophomore and junior seasons).

Harris was the starting tailback during an era of incredibly talented backs at Ohio State. Before he got the starting job, Robert Smith, Carlos Snow, and Vince Workman were the starters. After Harris left, it was Eddie George, Pepe Pearson, and Michael Wiley. That’s one hell of a history to be a part of.

Today, we raise our glass to you, Raymont Harris!

34 days until kickoff!
