The Pittsburg, Calif., program is the last team to have beat Concord (Calif.) De La Salle 139 games ago. This season the Pittsburg Pirates will try to spoil the Spartan’s streak later on in the season. Pittsburg will be led by defensive end/offensive tackle Rashaun Harris (6-5, 280, 5.0).
Harris is a throwback to the big fast defensive ends of years past. “Rashaun is a big strong kid who can really move,” Pittsburg head coach Victor Galli said. “He can really run.”
“Last season Rashaun was just coming into his own,” Galli said. “Now he’s become a force.”
Harris really is becoming a force. As a junior he was an all-league selection after he accounted four sacks. He already has three sacks in two games so far in 2003.
Pittsburg is a perfect 2-0 on the young season and Harris has been causing mayhem all season long on both sides of the ball.
Harris has offers from Oregon State and Washington State. He has heard from both schools since September 1st and more.
Samplings of the other schools that are showing interest in Harris are Michigan, Arizona State, USC and San Jose.
“Rashaun is a big time recruit,” Galli said. “The whole Pac10 have shown him a lot of interest.”
