When he was growing up in Northeast D.C., Dominique Harris lived less than ten minutes away from RFK stadium.
This week, he'll suit up in Temple University's cherry and white uniform and play in RFK stadium in the EagleBank Bowl. "It's crazy!" Harris says.
Before Harris became Temple's starting strong safety, he was a standout at H.D. Woodson High School in the district.
Harris says more and more D.C. Public Schools alumni are finding success on the gridiron. "More people are being recognized on the next level, which is the NFL, from D.C. and they see the talent down here," says Harris.
The Eagle Bank Bowl is the first bowl game for Temple in 30 years. They'll face off against UCLA Tuesday afternoon.
