Kevin Harris has emerged as South Carolina’s surprising star: ‘He’s been a stud’

COLUMBIA, S.C. — When Kevin Harris walked onto the football field for the first time as a 5-year-old, he received a veteran’s introduction to the game.

“The first thing we did for 30 minutes was drive that sled,” said Derek Sills, who coached Harris that season and would continue to do so for the next 11 years. “I called the sled Bertha. I said, ‘I want y’all to meet my girlfriend. Don’t tell my wife. This is Bertha. It’s time to kiss the girl.’ That was the drill, Kiss the Girl. We drove that sled mile upon mile upon mile, the whole team, 30, 40 minutes before every practice, drive your feet, drive your feet. It didn’t matter to me if they were 5 or not, they were getting coached pretty hard, and he could take it.”
