Ex-Redhawks football players to get shot at title

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Former Southeast Missouri State football players Henry Harris and Frank Knights will play in the gold medal game of the 2011 IFAF Senior World Championship in Austria on Saturday.

Harris, a running back, and Knights, an offensive guard, are part of a Team USA squad that advanced to the title contest with Tuesday's 17-7 win over Mexico.

Harris rushed for 6 yards on two carries and caught one pass for 6 yards to help defending champion Team USA improve to 3-0.

Team USA will take on either Japan or Canada in the championship game.

Harris and Knights helped lead Southeast to the program's first Ohio Valley Conference title and first playoff berth as seniors in 2010.
