About Damon

Harrison was born in Lafayette, Louisiana on November 29, 1988. He attended Lake Charles Boston Academy, where he primarily played point guard on the school’s basketball varsity. He decided to take on football for his senior year, playing both offensive and defensive line, and was an all-district and all-Southwest Louisiana selection in 2006. Since much of recruiting takes place during a high school player’s junior season, Harrison was overlooked by college scouts wound up without any scholarship offer after his graduation. He enrolled at Northwest Mississippi Community College, but dropped out after the first semester to work as a night stocker at Wal-Mart in Lake Charles.[3] However, he was later recruited to William Penn by former NMCC assistant coach Steve Miller. During his senior season, he was recognized as NAIA All-American and first-team all-conference after posting 3.5 sacks and 8.5 tackles for losses among his team-high 60 tackles.

Harrison was signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent on April 29, 2012. He appeared in 5 games in 2012 but did not record a single stat that year. Following the departure of Sione Pouha and a preseason injury to Kenrick Ellis, Harrison was named the starting defensive tackle for the 2013 season. On October 20, 2013, Harrison recorded his first career sack where he brought down New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. During the 2013 season, Harrison started all 16 games making 66 tackles, 2 passes defended, and 1 sack. In 2014, Harrison again started all 16 games with 55 tackles. In 2015, Harrison again started all 16 games making 72 tackles, 0.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. On January 6, 2016, Harrison was selected to the All-Pro team by Pro Football Focus; Harrison signed with the New York Giants on March 9, 2016.
