We were fortunate to have Franco Harris sign a football for us when he was a guest of the Palm Beach Chapter. The football will be auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chapter’s Scholarship fund. We are accepting silent bids at firstname.lastname@example.org. The opening bid is $100. The silent auction will continue until October 17, 2015. As the bidding goes on, the high bids will be posted on Facebook and will be shown on Chapter emails. The bidding will go live during half-time of the Ohio State game on October 17 at the World Famous Parrot Lounge. You do not have to be present to win.
Franco Harris graduated from Rancocas Valley Regional High School in Mount Holly Township, New Jersey and then attended Penn State. While playing for the Nittany Lions, he amassed 1,359 yards rushing (21st in PSU history) with 14 touchdowns and averaged over 5 yards per carry, while also catching 29 passes for 358 yards and another touchdown. He led the team in scoring in 1970. In the 1972 NFL Draft he was picked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round, the 13th selection overall. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990. Recently, Franco has been very vocal concerning bringing out the truth and bringing honor back to Joe Paterno.
