Franco Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers RB, No. 32.
"I didn't see the play. I was talking to the man upstairs. I didn't want to interrupt what I was doing. Next thing I know, the guys are jumping around and there goes Franco and I'm saying, 'Lord, I hope he has the ball.'" -- Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood, on Franco Harris' "Immaculate Reception."
Franco Harris was only the fourth player in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in his rookie season. It was the first of eight thousand-yard rushing seasons, with 91 touchdowns, four Super Bowl championships and one Super Bowl MVP amassed during a 13-year career that landed the former Nittany Lion in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In a career full of superlatives, Harris is best remembered for making "The Immaculate Reception," a much-disputed (and much-celebrated) play in the 1972 AFC playoffs. Trailing 7-6 with 22 seconds left to play, Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw fired a fourth-down pass that ricocheted off Raiders safety Jack Tatum (or Steelers fullback "Frenchy" Fuqua -- depending on who you ask) into the grasp of Franco Harris, who snatched the ball off his shoestrings and tore down the sidelines for a game-winning 60-yard touchdown play.
