Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. receives “Good Guy” award for 2nd time

Cornerback Chris Harris may have been sidelined with an injury for the rest of the season.

But on Friday, Harris was recognized by the press for what he does off the field.

Harris received the 12th annual Darrent Williams Good Guy award.

It was created in the memory of former broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, who passed away back in 2007.

The award is given annually to the Bronco who best embodies Williams’ enthusiasm, honesty, and cooperation with members of the press.

This is the 5th time a defensive back has won the award… and Harris is now the only Bronco to receive it twice.

“Darrent Williams, just growing up in Oklahoma and watching him at Oklahoma State–he was a playmaker and he was always a great person in Oklahoma-a guy everybody in the state definitely followed,” Harris said, after receiving the award.

“To be able to come up here and get this award twice, it’s a huge deal for me. Whoever gets it next year, hopefully I can just continue to lead by example with how I treat you all and who you all treat me, and just set that example for the younger guys,” he added.

Harris, who was an undrafted rookie, also received the award back in 2013.
