Chris Harris (American football)


Chris Harris (born August 6, 1982 in Little Rock, Arkansas) is an American football safety for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League. He was selected with the seventh pick of the sixth round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of the University of Louisiana at Monroe by the Chicago Bears. As a rookie Harris won the starting role for the free safety position over Mike Green early in the season.

In the 2006 preseason, Harris made a statement to a fan, Bryan Lange, that if the Bears made the Super Bowl he would give him a ticket. In January, his statement caused a minor controversy when the Bears did in fact qualify for Super Bowl XLI. Lange stood outside of Bears team headquarters demanding a ticket, holding a sign saying "Chris Harris, you promised." Harris claimed that he was joking and would not be able to fulfill the request due to family ticket obligations. Ticket brokerage firm later gave Lange a ticket, quieting the controversy.Harris was traded to the Carolina Panthers on August 2, 2007 for a 2008 5th round draft pick. Harris started 15 games in 2007 with finishing with 101 tackles with 8 forced fumbles leading the NFL and having a Carolina Panther record. In 2008, the Panthers rewarded Harris with a 4 year contract extension.

He has a twin brother and two older sisters, as well as a young daughter.

Chris Harris (wrestler)

An image of Chris Harris.

Chris Harris (born December 25, 1973) is an American professional wrestler. He is best known for his time with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where he was formerly one-half of the tag team America's Most Wanted along with partner James Storm.

Along with several other wrestlers, including future tag team partner James Storm, Harris was signed to a World Championship Wrestling (WCW) developmental deal in October 2000. Terry Taylor proposed a country singer gimmick for him, but it was rejected by management. The highlight of Harris's WCW career was appearing as a fake version of the popular wrestler Sting at Halloween Havoc in 2000. He wrestled on the WCW B-shows WorldWide and Saturday Night as part of R and B Security (the "Run and Bump" team) until the promotion was sold in early 2001.

On June 1, 2002, Harris was given a tryout match against his long-time independent circuit rival James Storm with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) by Bert Prentice. Both were subsequently signed to short term contracts. He wrestled in the Gauntlet for the Gold match on the first TNA pay-per-view and was placed in a tag team with Storm on the second pay-per-view by Bob Ryder, the creative force behind the team. Storm came up with the name "America's Most Wanted" (AMW) for the team. They obtained their first success on September 18, 2002 by surviving a tag team Gauntlet for the Gold and defeating Ron Harris and Brian Lee to obtain the NWA World Tag Team Championship.

In March and April 2003 the duo teased a split, with Storm and Harris facing off in a singles match on May 7, 2003. Storm won the match, but the partners shook hands afterward. Harris rejected Vince Russo's offer to join his stable of degenerates, Sports Entertainment Extreme (S.E.X). When Storm was incapacitated by the recurrence of an old shoulder injury in early 2004, Harris received a NWA World Championship shot on March 17, 2004 and was defeated by champion Jeff Jarrett. He went on to compete in a "King of the Mountain" ladder match for the title on June 2, 2004, but was again bested by Jarrett.

America's Most Wanted resumed teaming together, but on August 25, 2004, James Storm was sidelined with neck and shoulder injuries, leaving Harris without a partner. Harris teamed with Elix Skipper to win an NWA Tag Team Title for a fifth time on September 8, 2004. Harris and Storm later reunited. On January 16, 2005 Harris became a six time NWA Tag Team Champion (along with James Storm), winning the Tag Title from Bobby Roode and Eric Young. Harris won the title for a sixth and seventh time as part of AMW. In league with Jeff Jarrett, he would semi-reprise his role as a fake Sting when he played the Crow Sting in a Planet Jarrett retrospective of Sting's career on Impact! on January 7, 2006.

America's Most Wanted split as a team on the December 14, 2006 edition of Impact! during a tag team match with LAX in a Titles vs Team match. Storm effectively chose the outcome of the match by assaulting Harris with a beer bottle allowing him to be pinned by Homicide putting an end to AMW.

On the January 11, 2007 episode of Impact! Harris did a (kayfabe) sit-down interview with Mike Tenay giving a strong impression his wrestling career could be over. Harris was not seen on television until the Against All Odds pay-per-view in which he (wearing an eye patch) went for Storm. For several weeks, he continued to attack Storm. On the March 1, 2007 episode of Impact! Harris claimed his vision was at 30% and vowed revenge on Storm. At Lockdown, Harris lost to Storm in Six Sides of Steel match, in which both men were blindfolded. It was revealed his vision had been restored, and Harris faced off against Storm at Sacrifice, in a Texas Death match, where Harris came out the victor. After this, Harris showed up two weeks straight to assist Rhino and Hector Guerrero with The Latin American Xchange (LAX). Harris entered into Slammiversary as the last contestant in the King of the Mountain Match, only to lose to Kurt Angle. Harris feuded with Christian Cage, losing to him by roll-up at Victory Road after Dustin Rhodes hit him in the back.

The Harris/Rhodes feud continued for a few weeks with Rhodes attacking Harris during his matches on Impact! until a match was made at Hard Justice, when Harris defeated "Black Reign" Dustin Rhodes via disqualification and at No Surrender Harris defeated Black Reign in a No Disqualification match by pinning Reign. On January 11, 2008, TNA announced on its website that Harris had been released from his TNA contract.

Harris also works regularly for NWA Cyberspace along with James Storm in the tag team division and as a singles competitor. On November 19, 2005, Harris was forced to fight against Jeff Jarrett for the NWA Cyberspace Heavyweight Championship (though Jarrett was also NWA World Heavyweight Champion, that title was not on the line). Jarrett let Harris beat him with a Fingerpoke of Doom, but NWA CyberSpace Commissioner Jasmin St. Claire booked them for a three-way dance immediately afterward with fellow Cyberspace and TNA wrestler "The Monster" Abyss, who beat both and won the Cyberspace Heavyweight Championship.

Harris announced on his official website that he had signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on January 29, 2008. Harris was pinned by Shelton Benjamin in his WWE debut on March 11, 2008 in a dark match. Harris made his WWE television debut on the July 8, 2008 episode of ECW, under the name "Braden Walker", defeating Armando Estrada. He wrestled one more match, a pinfall victory over James Curtis, before he was released from his WWE contract on August 7, 2008.

In early September 2008, Harris appeared at the Northern Wrestling Federation with the name "Wildcat" Chris Harris. He talked of leaving professional wrestling but changed his mind and said that he would face the NWF Heavyweight Champion Ryan Stone. On November 8, Harris won the match by disqualification, but did not claim the NWF title. Recently Harris was spotted backstage at a TNA house show in Cincinnati, Ohio at one point he was spotted chatting and drinking a beer with James Storm this could mean a possilbe return to TNA in the future.

In 1999, he married his girlfriend of four years, Susan. Then, the two divorced each other in 2004.

That same year, he appeared in the video for the Clay Davidson song "I Can’t Lie to Me".

Chris Harris.jpg

Christopher Calvin "Chris" Harris (born 28 November 1982) in Truro, Cornwall, nicknamed Bomber, is a Great Britain international speedway rider for the Coventry Bees in the United Kingdom.

Chris Harris began his racing career at the age of six and a half by competing in grasstrack events. His talent quickly became apparent when he began to win all of the junior age groups in the South-West area.

In 1998, aged 15, Harris progressed to speedway racing for the St. Austell Gulls at Amateur Conference League level. The Gulls won the Championship and the Knockout Cup.

On his 16th birthday, Harris signed for the Exeter Falcons, who competed in the Premier League, the middle tier of British speedway’s three-league structure. Harris then suffered the loss of his father who was not only his driver but also his mentor. He still achieved his first notable individual success later that year, when he became Great Britain Under-16 Champion. He was also selected to ride for Great Britain at both Under-19 and Under-21 level.

In 2000, Harris was able to build on his successful debut season and more than doubled his previous year’s points total, being unbeaten by an opponent in several matches. The Exeter Falcons team finished the season as Premier League Champions and reached two cup finals and one semi-final.

Harris moved clubs for the 2001 season, joining the Trelawny Tigers in Cornwall. He soon became their top scorer and qualified for the World Under-21 final as first reserve. He continued his form into 2002, being made club captain. Once again, he was top scorer for the club and under his captaincy Trelawny Tigers won the Premier Trophy.

Taking advantage of new rules introduced to assist young British riders, Harris also took the step up to ride in the Elite League in 2002, with the Peterborough Panthers. He progressed well during his debut Elite League season, moving up into the main body of the team. Individually, he progressed to the Final of the British Speedway Championship and finished fourth in the World Under-21 Championship.

In 2003, Harris was once again able to ride for Trelawny Tigers in the Premier League and Peterborough Panthers in the Elite League. By the end of the season, he was an Elite League heat-leader. Off track, he was voted BBC South-West Sports Personality of the Year.

However, it was on the individual front Harris was most successful. In the World Under-21 Championship, he won both his quarter and semi final rounds, progressing to the final in Sweden where he finished runner-up, one point behind Jarosław Hampel.

His form during 2003 won Harris an invitation to take part as a reserve in the third round of the 2003 FIM Individual Speedway World Championship, the British Grand Prix, held at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

2004 saw Harris sign for the Coventry Bees. The following season, the Bees won the Elite League Championship, which meant Harris had won titles at all three levels of British speedway aged just twenty-two.He also represented Great Britain in the World Cup.

In 2007 Harris became British Champion. Harris was selected to ride as a permanent wild card in the 2007 Speedway Grand Prix series, riding at number 15. In only his fifth full Grand Prix meeting he won the British Grand Prix at Cardiff. He was also a victim of an armed robbery, just two weeks before his maiden Grand Prix win when he was held up at gunpoint whilst out with his manager.

Winning the Grand Prix was considered to be the biggest event to happen in British Speedway for several years. Off track, he was again voted BBC South-West Sports Personality of the Year. and was also voted BBC Midlands Sports Personality of the Year , beating Aston Villa footballer Gareth Barry into second place.
