In the second quarter, Harris found Kenny Stafford across the middle of the field and connected with a 28-yard pass for the major and to give the Esks the 8-7 lead. With under thirty seconds left in the half, the Waldo, Ohio, native faked the handoff to CJ Gable and slung it to Stafford for the 10-yard touchdown.
