**********Going Beyond the Roster……**********

RICHMOND, Va. — University of Richmond football head coach Russ Huesman has been around the game most of his life. A big part of his job is finding players who will fit into his football program.

“Some [jump out] pretty quickly,” Huesman said. “Some a bit later. Some you have to see live. But there are some that you see on the film that jump out pretty quickly and you say no-brainer.”

Nile Harris(Grimsley High School) is a redshirt freshman defensive back on the Spiders team. He was all-conference in both football and track in high school in Greensboro, North Carolina. Richmond was one of five schools that offered him a scholarship.

“We knew he was a solid kid and he’s gotten better and better as he’s gone on here and we think he’s going to be a real good player for us,” Huesman said.

“I wasn’t the biggest kid,” Harris added. “I didn’t have a bunch of D-1 offers coming out of high school just because of my size. But I made up for my size with my work ethic.”

And at a place like Richmond, that work ethic gets a work out.

Harris played five different sports growing up. But he also played eight different instruments. The cello became one of his favorites.

And in addition to his football duties, he also plays with the university orchestra.

“First he says ‘I’m a football player,'” Alexander Kordzaia, the Conductor and Director of the University of Richmond Symphony Orchestra, said. “And I saw, that’s a sports guy. And then he sits down and plays the cello and I said I have to have this kid in the orchestra. And it’s been just amazing.”

Read more and it is amazing, coming in from WTVR TV 6 in Richmond, Virginia on Nile Harris, the former Grimsley Whirlie and a kid we first met back around 2006 when he was coming to our wrestling matches at the Phillips Avenue Sports Center and Nile came over with the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club kids from Fairmont Courts, where his dad Ron, was running the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club there….
