South Central senior running back Kevone Harris has worked hard to become the Falcons number one running back, and this season he will have the chance to show everyone what he's made of. Harris spoke with Preps beat writer Jake Keator about SC's upcoming season, his goals and his future legacy.

Q: How have things been going in the off-season? Is the team ready for tomorrow night?

A: "The team is looking good. We lost a lot of guys in our senior class last year, but I think we're still going to be a really good team, it's forcing Justin Humphries and I to really step up as leaders.

Q:What has that been like, stepping up as the leaders? What have been some of the challenges in taking on that larger role?

A: "To be honest it's kind of hard. We will be in practice and we just know that coach (Andy) Tew is looking at us to set the example for the team, so it can be a hard spot to be in sometimes. I'm getting used to it though.

Q: That big senior class meant a lot of younger guys are stepping into starting roles, what has it been like helping them get acclimated to the team and the playbook?

A: "I felt like those guys kind of knew what to expect before they got on the team. They've done a really good job with learning everything and working hard. In the end it's up to us seniors to lead. If you have two kids, the little kid is going to follow the example of the big kid, so it's up to us to kind of show them how things work."

Q: When you walk off the SC football field for the final time what do you want your legacy to be?

A: "That's a tough question. I want to be remembered as a guy who who played hard every snap, and as someone who had plenty of speed."

Q: What advice would you give to a younger athlete who is looking to become a top running back?

A: I'd tell them to not worry about their size. Size doesn't really matter anyway at the position, as long as you have the speed you can be really effective. I'd also tell them to play hard on every snap. In the end, God decides and all you can do is just play and work your hardest."
