Alabama tough? Damien Harris breaks a slew of tackles en route to bruising touchdown
Finding the endzone in the NFL isn’t easy. Damien Harris made it as difficult as possible.
The former Alabama running back broke 7 official tackles according to the broadcast to score a touchdown for the New England Patriots. It was nothing short of spectacular:
The touchdown was Harris’ first of the season. Like the New York Jets, Alabama foes are used to seeing Harris punish defenders. He carried the ball 477 yards for 3,070 yards 23 while at Alabama from 2015 to 2018.
A Kentucky native, Harris was selected in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Patriots. Harris was slowed last season by a broken finger but that doesn’t seem to be an issue any longer.
