“I guess you could say not too many males will say they look up to a woman nowadays,” #University of #Alabama star running back #Najee #Harris said at a #Rose #Bowl press conference. “But I really look up to her for what she does outside of sports.”

#He was talking about #Megan #Rapinoe, an athlete he has admired for some time.

“She’s from #California, first of all, and she listens to #Nipsey,” #Harris said off the bat. “Nipsey #Hussle is like one of my favorite rappers too.”

Then the #Tide’s senior back spoke about some of the other reasons he looks up to the US #Women’s #National #Team star.

“She’s a feminist,” he said. #She stands up for “how the women in the world get treated unfairly, how they get paid different.”

I, for one, can’t think of the last time I heard a male athlete talk about feminism at a press conference.

“It can be scary for her to be a woman in what they would say is a man’s world,” #Harris continued. “And her just listening, standing up, not listening to all the naysayers out there and really just standing up for what she believes in. #It’s motivating and it’s inspirational.”

#Rapinoe responded to the college athlete with a tweet of her own.

#This isn’t the first time #Harris has publicly supported #Rapinoe. #Last season, he celebrated a touchdown with her signature move. #And a few weeks ago, against LSU, the running back broke out the #Rapinoe cele again.

#And in #August, #Harris stood up for others too when he helped lead #Alabama athletes in a march to protest systemic racism.

#On #Friday, at the #Rose #Bowl (in #Dallas), he’ll get another chance to pose in the end zone.
