Former Central star DuJuan Harris has been spending some time at his old high school.

The Jacksonville Jaguars running back spoke with PE classes Friday and went to a Bears basketball game last week.

“Whenever Fox is on campus, man, there’s always a buzz,” Central football coach Mike Einsphar said.

Harris, one of Hernando County’s all-time leading rushers, also answered questions from the football team about life after high school and his NFL career and hung out with players in the weight room.

Harris had one of the best seasons in Hernando County history in 2006, rushing for 1,685 yards at Central before moving onto Troy. He tallied 27 rushing TDs and more than 2,600 rushing yards during his college career before joining Jacksonville's practice squad this year.

Harris appeared in each of the Jaguars’ final five games, rushing nine times for 42 yards.

A day after Harris addressed the Bears, Central’s football team visited children the Shriners Hospital in Tampa before attending the East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field.
