SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The B.B. Comer Tigers made a magical run to the AHSAA Class 2A state title game in 2022 because of hard work by coaches, staff, faculty, administration, and, of course, players, but Kamore Harris definitely had a season to remember.
Harris had a year that only young athletes can dream about, and he has been named the 2A Back of the Year by the Alabama Sports Writers Association (ASWA).
The junior put up some astounding numbers while actually missing four games early in the season due to an injury.
As a running back, he carried the ball 178 times compiling 1,660 yards and crossing into the end zone 19 times for touchdowns. The most impressive part of that is every time he carried the ball, he yielded an incredible 9.3 yards per carry. He also grabbed four receptions for 158 more yards along with two more touchdowns.
If that is not enough, he also garnered some great statistics on the other side of the ball. He racked up 96 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, and 1 pass break up.
Coach Adam Fossett said, “Kamore has got all of the tools to be successful on the gridiron, and we are very proud of him and his accomplishments as well as our team’s awards as well.”
Kamore was asked about his award and he was very humble saying, “It’s a great honor to put on that jersey and play as hard as I can. I know that if I go out there and get over 100 yards and a couple of touchdowns, I will give my team a chance to win. I know I’m not alone though. I want to thank my offensive line, teammates, parents, coaches, and supporters who are all a part of this.”
Kamore also says that this award will go a long way to motivating him to do even better next year, as he is only a junior. He wants to win Mr. Football for the state of Alabama, and in my opinion, I would not bet against him that he might just get it done!
Congratulations Kamore, it’s very well deserved.
