If Damien Harris hadn't already secured his spot in the annals of Madison Southern athletics, it's probably safe to assume the No.1- ranked running back in America locked that up against South Laurel on Friday night.
Harris — a five-star prospect who lists Kentucky, Alabama, Ohio State, Florida and Texas A&M in his top five — rushed for seven touchdowns, including the game-winner from 2 yards out on a direct snap as time expired and Madison Southern rallied past South Laurel, 54-51.
Oh, he was named homecoming king at halftime, too.
