Harris Jr. Earns Darrent Williams Good Guy Award

Posted Dec 27, 2013

The Broncos’ local media corps named Chris Harris Jr. its 2013 Darrent Williams Good Guy Award recipient.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. has been selected by the Broncos’ local media as the 2013 Darrent Williams Good Guy Award recipient.

"It definitely means a lot," Harris Jr. said. "I try to set an example. I try to set the standard for how you are supposed to be on and off the field and I’ve always been told to not be like a chicken, soar above like an eagle. So that’s something that I try to do.”

The award, which was created in memory of former Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, who passed away on Jan. 1, 2007, is given annually to the player who best exemplifies Williams’ enthusiasm, cooperation and honesty while dealing with members of the press.

"(Champ Bailey) said he was a very classy guy and he was guy that tried to be a leader on and off the field too," Harris Jr. said when asked what Bailey had told him about Williams. "That’s a little bit of the things that Champ has told me.”

Throughout the 2013 season, Harris Jr. has consistently made himself available to the media on a daily basis. During both the highs and lows of the season, Harris Jr. has answered questions asked of him by the media.

Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com presented the seventh-annual award to Harris Jr. after the team’s practice on Friday on behalf of the Denver chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America.

Harris Jr. is the seventh different player to receive the honor, joining  Wesley Woodyard (2012), Champ Bailey (2011), Mario Haggan (2010), Elvis Dumervil (2009), Ebenezer Ekuban (2008) and John Lynch (2007).

"He’s a standup guy even when times aren’t going real well," Head Coach John Fox said of Harris. "He’s, I think, mature beyond his years. I think he’s done a tremendous job just where he came from and what he’s accomplished in a short time here with the Broncos. It doesn’t surprise me.”
