UNH's Harris wins Gold Helmet Award
BOSTON - The Gridiron Club of Greater Boston selected University of New Hampshire wide receiver R.J. Harris as this week's recipient of the Gold Helmet Award for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).
Wednesday's announcement at Harvard's Dillon Field House recognized the sophomore for his 12-catch, 102-yard effort in the Wildcats 38-17 victory at Holy Cross on Thursday. Harris, who matched a career high for catches and added a personal-best 57 yards rushing on four carries, scored on an 8-yard pass from Sean Goldrich in the second quarter and accumulated a game-leading 159 all-purpose yards.
It is the first career Gold Helmet award for Harris, a 6-foot, 194-pound receiver who posted the fifth 100-yard receiving game of his Wildcat career.
