Harry King Jr still on Cloud Nine Following Championship Win:
Harry King Jr, a native of Miami, Florida, is still celebrating Notre Dame's fantastic win in the Championship Game last month. The largely un-scouted wide receiver had an up and down freshman season for the Fighting Irish: only managing to record two touchdowns for the entire season. It just so happened that the second of those TDs was the game winner in the title game, a simple two yard reception which lead Notre Dame to the promised land.
"I still get goosebumps thinking about it," King Jr said after a recent training session.
"To go from a guy who hardly got any scholarship offers, to be able to do that on the biggest stage of college football, I'll never forget it. It's a testament to the faith the guys have in me, from the coaching staff to the guys out on the field. I had a down season by my own standards but the team still had faith in me to deliver when the time was right. After all, the only thing I did was run my route. Shawn got me the ball right in my sweet spot -- I basically fell over into the endzone. But I'll be damned if it wasn't the best fall anybody could ever ask for."
