Most Pittsburgh Steelers fans consider Franco Harris the greatest running back in Steelers history. So when you are a running back who gets compared to Harris, take it as a compliment. Steelers second-year running back Najee Harris was asked about him wanting to be remembers like the elder Harris someday and he gave the best answer possible.
Harris is all about focusing on winning Super Bowls in Pittsburgh and less about his individual accolades. As a rookie, Harris rushed for 1,200 yards which was good enough for fourth-best in the NFL.
But without the team success, all the individual milestones don’t mean quite as much. Harris hopes to build on his strong rookie season and was named a captain by his teammates this year. A rare honor for a guy with only one year under his belt.
