Harrison played in the NFL for the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions from 2006 until last season. Harrison was diagnosed with a brain tumor during a routine physical after being involved in a trade. 


As an All-American at Washington State University, Harrison led the nation in rushing his senior season in 2005. Now 29, Harrison was inducted into PCC's Sports Hall of Fame in 2011 as he attended and spoke at the induction ceremony that year.
