This year has been a special one for the Trojans because many obstacles have helped them form stronger relationships, thus building a foundation for a stronger team. The relationships among the teammates are strong and the relationships between players and coaches are strong. The death of teammate Robert Garrett in August was a blow for the team, but team members rallied and worked to make the season a good one.
ìThe boys wanted conference rings this year,î says Harris. ìThey said that whether they won or lost the championship, the rings symbolized something for themóall the obstacles they had overcome together.î
Harris has received Coach of the Year Awards beforeówhen he coached at Messiah College in Pennsylvania and when he coached at Judson College in Illinois.
