2019: Blue Bombers
The Winnipeg-born product authored another sensational year, and capped it with a memorable performance in the club’s victory in the 107th Grey Cup for which he was honoured as both the game’s Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Canadian. Harris rushed 18 times for 134 yards and a touchdown in the win, adding five catches for 35 yards and another TD in helping end the franchise’s long championship drought.
His regular-season numbers were equally impressive, as he rushed for 1,380 yards and four touchdowns to capture his third consecutive CFL rushing title — the first Bombers running back to do so — while adding 70 receptions for 529 yards and four more touchdowns, all this coming in 16 games following a two-game suspension. Included in those numbers was his work in a win over Montreal on October 12th in which he rushed for a career-best 166 yards. Those totals moved him into 6th place on the Bombers all-time rushing list with 4,779 yards and into 10th place in receptions with 300.
As well, Harris became the CFL’s all-time leader in yards from scrimmage by a Canadian player, surpassing Ben Cahoon with a total that is now at 14,145 and growing, while also moving past Normie Kwong to become the league’s all-time leader for rushing yards by a Canadian with 9,038. That total now ranks him eighth on the CFL’s all-time list and just 302 yards shy of moving past Joffrey Reynolds and Kelvin Anderson into sixth spot.
2018: Blue Bombers
Harris put together another all-star season in 2018, winning his second-consecutive CFL rushing title with a career-best total of 1,390 yards along the ground. It marked the first time since Charles Roberts in 2005-2006 that a Bomber running back had led the league in rushing in back-to-back seasons. Harris also added an additional 451 yards receiving on 58 receptions, the third-highest total on the club. His 11 touchdowns — eight rushing, three receiving — tied for third-most in the CFL. Harris eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the fourth time in his career (previously: 2017 with Winnipeg; 2012 and 2015 with the B.C. Lions) and now has 3,399 rushing yards as a Bomber, moving him into 10th place on the club’s all-time list, ahead of Ken Ploen. Harris now also ranks 12th on the CFL’s all-time rushing list with 7,658 yards and 42 touchdowns.
