Iron Bowl 2017: Alabama’s Damien Harris, Auburn’s Jarrett Stidham go way, way back

News

AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — Hatred is one word to describe the intense Iron Bowl rivalry, but you won’t find any of that between Auburn’s QB and Alabama’s RB.

Chris Renkel found out just how far Damien Harris and Jarrett Stidham go back, and it’s waaaaaay back.

While the state is divided–friends and family, brothers and sisters, you sometimes see guys who played together in high school on opposite sides.

But Stidham and Harris go back further than high school…all the way to pee wee football! The two are actually friends and grew up together in Kentucky.

Back then, Harris says, Stidham was the better player. Watch the video above to see the full story from CBS 42 College Football Saturday’s Chris Renkel.
