Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Major Harris was honored today in his hometown of Pittsburgh by having a street named after him.
Harris, who starred for the Mountaineers from 1987 to 1989, finished 5th in Heisman voting his Sophomore year, 3rd his Junior year and would have been the favorite to win it if he came back for his Senior year.
WVU would have also likely won the National Championship if he didn’t get hurt early in a 34-21 loss to Notre Dame.
Congratulations to one of the greatest players in West Virginia football history!
