Harris, who kicked the winning points in every Hampden-Sydney victory in 1982, has the distinction of being the only kicker to receive ODAC Player of the Year honors.  He also earned second team All-America honors in 1982, and was named Virginia State College Player of the Year by the Norfolk Touchdown Club.

He is one of only six Hampden-Sydney football players to be named an Academic All-American.  A three-year letterman, Harris was a member of the KA order and a mathematics major.

After his Tiger career, he had tryouts with the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Oilers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Chicago Blitz of the USFL.

Instead of pursuing a professional football career, he attended Harvard Business School, graduating with distinction.  He went on to co-found the Richmond investment banking firm of Harris Williams and Co., which specializes in mergers and acquisitions.
