One of his ventures is as part owner of the Texas Outlaws - a team in the Fall Experimental Football League. The league launched in 2014 and Harris and former OU teammate Eric Bassey have ambitions to move the team to Oklahoma City.

One venture he refuses to abandon is the Fall Experimental Football League, a developmental outfit with ambitions of becoming the NFL’s farm system. When the FXFL launched in May 2014, Harris, along with former OU teammate Eric Bassey, bought a stake in a franchise. Initially they’d hoped to base their operation in Austin, but, says Harris, Longhorns-supporting locals “weren’t really fond of a Sooner doing this. I didn’t think it would matter—but it does.” So they’ll move that endeavor back above the Red River, reportedly to Oklahoma City, and see if it takes.

This will be great, I always heard that the Fall Experimental football league wanted to put a team here, I hope they do come.

Wow. That was quite a story. You have to respect and admire someone who can rise to meet the challenges after such a horrible tragedy. Hard to read, but well worth it to see the rebound.

Could this be another reason to look to build a 10-20,000 seat "multi-purpose" stadium? FXFL, Energy soccer, high school championship games. I think it could be a great thing.
