Representing the red, white and blue since 2000, Harris has committed his countless minutes and hours to the U.S. Men’s National Team – a sheer passion that was instilled in him by his father. A hockey enthusiast himself, Harris’ father signed Harris up for a local field hockey league at the age of five. Never putting down the stick since, Harris went on to achieve accolades such as the MVP of the 2007 USA Field Hockey National Championship in Chula Vista, Calif. and was named the top goal scorer of the International Hockey Federation's World League Round 1 tournament in Chula Vista, Cali. Harris was also a key contributor in Team USA's second place finish at the 2009 Pan American Cup in Santiago, Chile. A natural when it comes to the sport, Harris would like to believe that he didn’t choose the sport, but rather, the sport chose him.
