Harris joins Jacksonville NFL stars for training session
Games athletes and watched the full training session before being introduced to head coach Gus Bradley and his team, while players Ryan Davis and Henry Josey gave them an introduction on how to play the game.
Harris said: “Ever since I was a child I have really liked American football, so it was such a fantastic opportunity to come and meet the guys and see just how big some of these chaps are.
“It was fantastic speaking with them and it was really interesting to pick their brains about their preparation and how they keep their focus as professional athletes. I was a Cowboys fan as a boy, but I am fully behind the Jaguars now!”
Jaguars player Johnathan Cyprien added: “We have a massive amount of respect for those brave enough to serve in the Armed Forces, and, as we’d heard about the Invictus Games, we were keen to meet some of the competitors. It was great to have them down to our base and give them a taste of American football.”
