Fourth-year Buff Michael Harrison emotional after CU’s first win: ‘Man, I might cry’

When Deion Sanders was named the new head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes football team, there was an unprecedented amount of roster turnover. One player who stayed was Michael Harrison, a walk-on who has emerged as a weapon in the new offense led by Sean Lewis.

He has become a quality tight end and has been pegged as a potential sleeper in the Pac-12, which is a huge step in the right direction. After the TCU victory on Saturday, Harrison grew emotional when discussing what this meant after he has been with the Buffs since 2020 (h/t Thee Pregame Show)

“Man, I might cry,” Harrison told ‘Thee Pregame Show.’ “I’ve been here for so long. It just feels so good to win. We work so hard, bro. I love this (expletive). I’m just so happy. I’m just so happy right now.”

The junior from California has been with the Buffs every step of the way. After a one-win season and the subsequent hiring of Coach Prime, the hard work paid off in a big way in Week 1.
