Why Najee Harris drove 9 hours to be at Alabama football Pro Day
Despite being unable to participate due to injuries, Alabama football running back Najee Harris wouldn't miss the Pro Day to support his teammates.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Harris' flight from Dallas was canceled due to lightning, so he drove nine hours from Dallas to Tuscaloosa to support his teammates.
Harris rushed for 1,466 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2020, being named a unanimous All-American and winning the Doak Walker Award as the best running back in college football.
