Harris' 'A Football Life' to premiere tonight – Steelers.com

Franco Harris: A Football Life will premiere tonight at 9 p.m. on NFL Network, the same day as the 50th Anniversary of the Immaculate Reception, voted the greatest play in NFL history.
It is also airing just days after the sudden passing of Harris, the legendary Hall of Famer and Steelers icon.
Harris’ story from his rookie season in 1972, when he made the Immaculate Reception, all through his Hall of Fame career that included four Super Bowl Championships, will be chronicled in the show.
The show features many of Harris’ Hall of Fame teammates, including Joe Greene, Mel Blount, Jack Ham and Terry Bradshaw, sharing stories about him.
“Franco was the heart and soul of our team,” said Greene. “When Franco arrived, we became the Pittsburgh Steelers.”
The show highlights his time growing up in Mount Holly, New Jersey before starring at Penn State and being a first-round pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1972 while winning the NFL’s Rookie of the Year. In addition to the Immaculate Reception, it covers winning four Super Bowls during the 1970s and how that frame his Hall of Fame career.
“Franco is a legend,” said current Steelers running back Najee Harris in the show. “You’re going to be remembered by the games and the moments you had, just like we’re still talking about the Immaculate Reception to this day.”
