LaRon Harris Trying to Bounce Back From His Mistakes

LaRon Harris' football career has been moving in reverse. After high school, he landed a scholarship to Tennessee, then flunked out of school and wound up at Northwestern Oklahoma, an NAIA school. Nothing against Northwestern Oklahoma, but that's not where you want to wind up if you harbor dreams of playing in the NFL.

Remarkably, Harris may still wind up being selected in next month's NFL draft. After working hard to manage his weight and his anger issues stemming from a broken home, he recently wowed scouts in a workout and perhaps landed on a few draft boards.

Click here to read the ESPN.com feature "Just trying to make a name for himself," to see how Harris allowed opportunity to slip away and what got him turned around to reclaim it.
