Harris Talks Signing Day, Season

DeaconSports caught up with '09 basketball commit C.J. Harris to discuss Mt. Tabor's 3-0 start as well as his thoughts on signing day.

C.J. Harris and his teammates at Mt. Tabor High School are poised and ready to make a run at the State 4A championship this season. With convincing wins over Southern Lee and Wayne Country Day already under their belt, the Spartans and Harris are off to a great start.

"So far so good," said Harris. "We are 3-0 and had a big win over Southern Lee on Saturday. I was a little banged up before the Wayne Country Day game but I feel good now and I am back in the groove."

Harris has high expectations for himself and his teammates this season. "Our goal is to get back in the playoffs and make a run at the title. We have six seniors on this years team that know how it feels to loose in the playoffs. I really think we have a shot at winning it all this season."

Harris does not pay a whole of attention to his personal stats, but does have a few goals in mind. "Of course I would love to get conference M.V.P. and things like that but my main goal is helping my team win games. That's what it is about."

A few weeks ago, Harris was able to play a game at the Joel Coliseum and he admitted he was a bit nervous at first. "I was really looking forward to playing there. I was a little nervous at first because I knew some of the Wake coaches and players were there but it was fun."

A few weeks ago, Harris officially became a Demon Deacon and needless to say he was thrilled. "Signing day felt great. We had a great ceremony at Tabor. Everyone there made it a special day for all of us. It feels good to have it all done."

After starting the season with 13 points against Wayne Country Day, Harris has scored 20+ in his last two contests including 22 points, 8 assists, and 7 rebounds against Southern Lee.
