Photos Relating to the Book, Major Impact.
Before Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb, and Patrick White, there was West Virginia's Major Harris! In 1988, in a nationally-televised game on CBS, he ran 26-yards for a touchdown on a busted play. On that day, the entire college world came to know the phenomenal athlete with the unusual name. From the gritty streets of Pittsburgh’s Hill District to the Downtown Athletic Club in New York City, Major has climbed the pinnacle of college football’s elite. Recently elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, this two-time Heisman Trophy finalist was the first Division I quarterback to ever run the ball for more than 2,000 yards and pass for more than 5,000 yards in his career. And although he failed to play a single snap in the National Football League, Major’s pioneering style of play would change the game forever. This is the story of an athlete who left a Major Impact on the game!
"This is a must read for any true West Virginia football fan. Major Harris was a player who was ahead of his time. Yoho writes in an easy to read, conversational style, and takes the reader from Major's childhood to the present. Pick this great book up today and revisit old memories, or learn about one of the best who ever wore the old gold and blue. You won't regret it.."
