So glad you came to Bama. Amazing story. Roll Tide!!

If Bama had given him the ball in 2019 Natty, maybe Clemson would not have won.

The more I learn about this young man the happier I am he's a Pittsburgh Steeler. My hometown team. His ability and his character are both first round quality. Right on, Najee. Welcome to the Burgh. Let's get a ring, bruh.

Love Najee. He really seems like a cool person. Liked how he had a party for the homeless after he got drafted. I also like how close he is to his mom. And he showed how much of a team player he is when he shared the goodies from his college recruiting trips with his teammates. Once again, kudos to his mom and his mentors for stressing the importance of sharing. This was another great video. Best wishes to Najee Harris throughout his NFL career.

Is there anyway to watch this with spanish subtitles? My dads fiances son is a teen who just moved in with his mom after living in pr his whole life he doesnt speak english yet but understands some and has been trying to learn by watching videos in english with subs but also doesnt feel like he fits in and has some problems to work through and I know if he saw something like this he could relate and he keeps saying he wants to play basketball but hasn't tried because hes afraid to fail and I think this series would be something that could push him that last little bit because it wont be his mom or step dad or 30 yr old step brother telling him itll be a stranger with a tougher story than his own but who is also closer to his age and who he can relate to in many more aspects

I lived in Martinez and played QB for Alhambra High school way back in 1978 and also lived in San Ramon 1976 and played QB against John Elway from Pleasanton High and when I saw Harris back in 2017 at Antioch our rivals from Martinez I started following this kid and knew he was as Good and a possible Bo Jackson impact type player, and being a 49er fan hoped SF & Shanahan would pull the trigger to get Harris with that high pick but Pittsburgh snapped him up. Good luck to you Najee and Pittsburgh.

Ok when do we hold women accountable for having all these kids and knowing they're not in position to take care of the kids she already have. These women put a lot of young men in a position to have to do something about they're living situation. Yet we praise these women for being single mother and missing the fact that most of these kids are screwed up because they're mothers reckless decisions to bring them in this world without anything to start they're lives with. 5 kids and keep getting evicted should be shamed in our community.

Jesus, who was God in the flesh of a man, died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried, and rose form the dead 3 days later. If you simply believe in this to apply to you and save you from the second death, then you have everlasting life in heaven. John 6:47 "verily, verily I say unto you, he that believes in me has everlasting life."-Jesus.

It’s sad to hear these indigenous American Indians tell their stories when United States citizens come here and prosper and they don’t speak American English. It’s clear that the mistreatment of the Americans by by The United States corpse is intentionally. “They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation; Let the name of Israel be remembered no more.” For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant-” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:4-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Pittsburgh is going to lean him up a little and he will be even more dangerous. They did that with Bell and Snell. Its just a guess.

Remember that Mom made some choices about the men she wanted to be with.....or not. Women are often single and the children’s father’s not being available is not necessarily a reflection of Father’s not being supportive or available to their children. There are many occasions where Mom’s decide they no longer want a relationship of the men who fathered these children

I live in London and have a vague, passing interest in Gridiron. I happened to chance on a news piece about him having a draft party at a shelter/refuge he went to as a child. Out of curiosity I went to see a couple of his athletic prowess in his chosen field. Blimey. He’s got presence. Further down the internet wormhole I’ve found myself here commenting on this fella. What an inspiration. I reckon he’s destined for something great. Good luck to him. As an aside, I’m a fan of the Arsenal. Many years ago, when the Arsenal had a competitive team, they had a wonderfully balletic, French forward named Thierry Henry. Najee Harris glides on the turf like him with similar devastating output. I’ll be following his career from here on in....

I followed his recruiting very closely and scouts said as well as being a 5 star RB (he was the #1 player overall in his 2018 class) he would’ve been a 5 star WR. I haven’t a clue how anyone debated who was the better RB for the NFL Najee or Travis Et. It’s 100% gonna be Najee.
