Steelers president Art Rooney II issues statement on death of Franco Harris

Pittsburgh Steelers team President Art Rooney II released the statement below in response to the death of Steelers icon Franco Harris. Harris, who was 72 years old, played 12 of his 13 NFL seasons with Pittsburgh.

It is difficult to find the appropriate words to describe Franco Harris’ impact on the Pittsburgh Steelers, his teammates, the City of Pittsburgh and Steelers Nation. From his rookie season, which included the Immaculate Reception, through the next 50 years, Franco brought joy to people on and off the field. He never stopped giving back in so many ways. He touched so many, and he was loved by so many. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Dana, his son Dok, and his extended family at this difficult time.
