Alabama Crimson Tide running back Najee Harris loves flying over defenders, especially in the Iron Bowl. The junior became Superman in the second quarter with an incredible dive into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown.
The Crimson Tide made Harris the focal point of the offense with Tua Tagovailoa sidelined. It paid off in a big way as the 6-foot-2 running back put his strength, athleticism and instincts on display.
While Harris might not have been viewed among the best running backs in college football entering the season, he’s certainly earned that level of respect now. He’s an outstanding multi-purpose back who can make big plays as a receiver and at the goal line.
