Every league of football that Jerome Harrison performed, he was considered small for a running back at 5-foot-9. But Harrison played big, making history at the community college, 4-year university and even NFL levels. The only running back in school history to perform back-to-back, 1,000-yard rushing seasons, Harrison is second on the PCC all-time career rushing list with 2,092 yards. He was twice named All-Mission Conference and a JC All-American honorable mention in 2003. Harrison ran for 255 yards in a game v. Santa Ana, the seventh most in school history. At the 4-year level, he led the nation and the NCAA Division I in rushing with 1,900 yards at Washington State University in his senior season. He was named a consensus NCAA All-American in 2005. Harrison was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. A six-year veteran back in the NFL, he recorded the third highest rushing yards game total in league history with 286 yards in a 2009 contest for the Browns. The peformance shattered the franchise's 52-year-old record set by the legendary Jim Brown and fell just 10 yards shy of the NFL record. The effects of a brain tumor ended his career prematurely in 2011.
