Harrison Jr. explains how he was able to continue playing against Notre Dame despite the injury.
“Definitely adrenaline,” Harrison Jr. said. “The next day I couldn’t really move too much, but definitely a lot of adrenaline and just the moment of the game.”
Harrison Jr. has recorded 17 receptions for 336 yards and 3 touchdowns this season. The Philadelphia native was an unanimous All-American last season as he tallied 77 receptions for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns.
