1970 Profile: James Harris

No. 12
"He was the starting quarterback as a rookie last year until he was knocked out by a stomach ailment and knee surgery. He was limited to four games and completed 15 of 36 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown.
Harris, a special pupil of Eddie Robinson at Grambling, is trying to become the regular black quarterback in big-time pro football. He has the size, at 6-3 and 210 pounds, and a strong arm. He could be the one to inject an aerial scoring threat (the Bills' 230 points were the lowest total in the league) and open up the Bill offense for runners like Simpson."

-Brenda and Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1970
