Damien Harris shares how Nick Saban prepared him to play in New England
Damien Harris bounced back from a fumble in Week 1 to deliver a solid performance for the New England Patriots last week in a win over the New York Jets.
Harris had 16 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown last week.
Harris made a recent appearance on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” and was asked how Alabama coach Nick Saban prepared him for New England and how the Patriots run their organization.
“100 percent, everybody knows that Coach Belichick and Coach Saban are pretty close, so they run their ships pretty much the same,” Harris said. “Obviously they have their differences, but Coach Saban prepared me to be in this situation. I think going to the University of Alabama and being a part of that program definitely helped create a sort of mentality to come in and show up every day with that professional mindset. I think all the things I went through with him help me get ready for this stage. It was still a tough adjustment, because you don’t really know what you’re walking into especially here when you get to New England.”
