Default Steelers Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris dies at 72

RIP Franco, the immaculate reception and you will live forever

PITTSBURGH -- Franco Harris, the Hall of Fame running back whose heads-up thinking authored the "Immaculate Reception," considered the most iconic play in NFL history, has died. He was 72.

He was one hell of a great player and being married to a Yinzer, he still seems to somehow come up in family chat every holiday. Sadly, this year it will be for something different.

I grew up a Steeler fan and always loved Franco. I had the pleasure of meeting him in an elevator (just us two) in Las Vegas many years ago. I got on and there he was.

The dialogue as I remember it:

Me: Are you who I think you are?
Franco: Who do you think I am?
Me: I think you are Franco Harris
Franco: That's me.
Me: You sure brought me a lot a pleasure as a kid.
Franco: That's really great to hear.

He shook my hand as he exited. He couldn't have been more pleasant. RIP
