    Legendary man, tremendous player who played middle linebacker at under 6 foot and 195 lbs. Struck fear into opposing defenses.
    Condolences to Mr. Harris' family and close friend plus his extended Stamps fan base around the globe!

    We're starting to lose too many legends. Leo Lewis passed away a couple years back. Ken Ploen is not in great health. He won a radio award as all-time greatest bomber QB but couldn't take the phone call - his daughter Carol had to do the interview on his behalf.
