Jamie Harris remains the standard by which all other G.W. Quarterbacks are measured. In his two years as a starter, the strong-armed right-hander led the Eagles to two Western District titles, a Northwest Regional Championship, and a berth in the 1981 AAA State Championship game, losing in an epic 15-to-9 battle against Hampton. In his three years on the varsity, the Eagles won 33 of 35 games.
As a senior in 1981, Harris passed for 1,506 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also ran for four scores. In his two years as a starter, Harris accounted for a total of 32 touchdowns. He capped off his G.W. career by being named Parade Magazine All-American at QB---the first G.W. player so honored.
Harris was also named All-South by the Orlando Sentinel, Virginia Player of the Year by the Roanoke Times and World News, First-team all-state by The Associated Press, and All-Region and All-District.
Harris committed to play football at the University of Georgia. He ended up his career as the starting quarterback at Wake Forest.
