2004 Outlook

Leroy Harris arguably improved more over the course of last season than any other player on NC State's roster and is now a leader on the offensive line. After garnering Honorable Mention All-ACC honors as a freshman, Harris should be in the mix for first-team honors in 2004. Lining up beside left tackle Chris Colmer and center Jed Paulsen, Leroy anchors one of the league's best offensive lines. Colmer, Harris, Paulsen, Right Guard John McKeon, and Right Tackle Derek Morris could be the key's to NC State's season.
