Harris (Evanston, Ill./Evanston Township), a senior outfielder, was a first-team selection on a squad that encompassed players from NCAA Division II and III and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Harris was the lone player from a Wisconsin college to be named to the team.

Harris, who finished in the top 20 in the Midwest Conference in batting average, hit a team-high .341 on the season and also posted a team-best .449 on-base percentage. Batting from the lead-off position, Harris had seven doubles, one triple, 22 runs scored and 15 runs batted in.

Harris was one of the Midwest Conference’s most feared base runners as he swiped 24 bases in 25 attempts this season. Harris’ 24 steals in 2013 was the third-highest season total in school history. Harris finished his career with a Lawrence record 64 stolen bases.

For his career, Harris hit .311 with 51 RBI, and his name is all over the Lawrence record book. A four-year starter, Harris ranks third with 441 at-bats, third with 70 walks, fourth with 89 runs scored, fifth with 137 hits and ninth with 21 doubles.
