- Harris Jr. is no stranger to adversity. As he began his high school career, Harris was described by his coach as “tall and lanky.” Stu Brown, his coach at Varina High School, knew he had the skill and work ethic, but didn’t know if he was strong enough. However, not everyone agreed with that assessment. Michael Robinson, current analyst on the NFL Network and draft pick of the 49ers, hosted a football camp at Varina, his former high school, when Tim was 15 years old. Richard Sherman was at the camp and immediately knew the impact Harris Jr. could have. “Richard Sherman looked at his body and the first thing he told Tim was, ‘You’ve got an NFL body,’” Brown said. “He was telling him that at 15 years old.” With that encouragement, Harris Jr. took off, training harder than he had before, garnering multiple scholarship offers.
