AW Video: Damien Harris Season Opener

BEREA, Ky. - The nation's top-rated running back prospect, Madison Southern standout Damien Harris, opened his senior season on Friday with a big performance in a game cut short by weather.

His long-awaited season opener lasted only one half due to frequent lightning that delayed the game twice for more than an hour, but Harris gave the home crowd a lot to cheer about with touchdown runs of 75 and 51 yards on back to back carries in the second quarter as the Eagles rolled over Rockcastle County 24-7.

Harris (5-10, 208) finished with 115 yards on seven carries, with the final two coming out of the "Wildcat" formation.

He is currently rated No. 35 overall in the Class of 2015 by Scout and recently narrowed his college choices to Kentucky, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida and Texas A&M.

The AllWildcats Video below features his second touchdown run of the night.
