Najee Harris Named to SEC Football Community Service Team

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama running back Najee Harris has been named to the 2020 Southeastern Conference Football Community Service team, the league office announced Thursday morning.

Harris has worked tirelessly to improve on his academics while continuing to put forth a consistent effort in the community. Most recently, Harris established himself as a vocal leader during the team’s social justice movement and has become one of the main voices for the Alabama football team and University’s push towards a more unified campus. He has also been an active member in the Tuscaloosa community, recording nearly 50 hours of community service, highlighted by his volunteer efforts with the Alberta Head Start Unity Project, where he serves as a positive role model for children.
