An exceptional athlete back in the early 70’s at Page High School, by the name of Raynard ‘Ray’ Harrison…Ray Harrison went on to play basketball at the University of North Carolina and was one of the best point guards to ever play the game….Harrison was also a starting quarterback at Page and then later on, he became a receiver and he was without a doubt many think, ‘the best all-around athlete to ever come out of Greensboro’…
Ray ran track at Page, where he did the 110H Hurdles and also High Jumped..Plus he ran on the relay teams…
Harrison also was one of the best baseball players (center field) in junior high school and maybe in all of Greensboro, at that time….
