John Jay High School Principal Robert Harris was recently inducted into the Seguin ISD Athletic Hall of Honor.
The 1983 Seguin High School graduate played varsity basketball for four years, three years as a starter, and his accomplishments on the court include being named first team All-District for two years, first team All-Region for two years, All-Centex for two years, TABC All-State, McDonald’s All-American nominee, and Team MVP. He played in the TABC All-Star game his senior year. Harris also earned a varsity letter in track.
Harris’ coach Harry Miller called him “the most complete player” he coached at Seguin High School.
"It is a tremendous honor to be inducted into the Seguin Athletic Hall of Honor,” Harris said. “It was especially gratifying to share the moment with my family and friends. I am very grateful to have grown up in a great community that afforded me an opportunity to become a successful adult."
Harris continued his basketball career at Midwestern State University where he was named All-Conference for three years, Team MVP for two years, and NAIA All-American his junior and senior years.
