Najee Harris Returns Home To Give Back
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Najee Harris visited his Antioch High School where his new foundation called Da' Bigger Picture helps its students not go hungry. Harris has partnered up with AHS pantry to make sure this plan comes into play.
Harris's foundation Da' Bigger Picture focuses on assisting underserved families. The foundation helps these families achieve their life goals. The hope is to have these families focus on key areas of their lives, such as education, and getting them back on their feet. The foundation utilizes sports as a platform to develop life skills.
Harris, who was once uncomfortable sharing his own experiences on how he grew up homeless and the personal struggles he went through, now uses his platform to make a positive impact on others.
More information on Harris's foundation and its works can be found here.
Harris is the all-time leading rusher in Alabama Crimson Tide history. As a rookie with the Steelers, he set the franchise record for rushing yards in a season by a rookie running back with 1,200 yards on 307 carries.
