Alabama’s Najee Harris speaks glowingly about ‘inspirational’ Megan Rapinoe


#Alabama running back #Najee #Harris might be the most fearsome player in college football and apparently over the last two seasons he has drawn inspiration from U.S. women’s soccer star #Megan #Rapinoe.

#Harris, on #Wednesday, was asked about why he finds #Rapinoe to be inspiring. The running back then launched into a breathtaking diatribe about what #Rapinoe means to him.

“#Really all the stuff she stands up for. #She’s a feminist and how the females, how women in the world get treated unfairly. #And the pay, how they get paid different and different stuff than men. #So she really stands up for all that. I like how she does that. #And obviously, the social injustice that happened, she plays a part in all of that,” #Harris told reporters.

“#For her to be a woman and saying all that stuff, it can be scary for her for being a woman in what they would say is a man’s world. #And her just playing a part, 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. #Me, as a male, I guess you could say, maybe not too many males would say they look up to a woman nowadays. #But I really look up to her, you know, just for what she does outside of sports.”

#Rapinoe caught #Harris’ comments as they went viral on social media.

#Harris has imitated #Rapinoe on the football field, celebrating with outstretched arms as the soccer star did in the 2019 #Women’s #World #Cup.

#Rapinoe was one of the first professional athletes to kneel in solidarity with #Colin #Kaepernick in 2016. #Her act of protest drew rebuke from the old U.S. #Soccer #Federation regime, which forced players to stand during the national anthem.

#Rapinoe vowed to stand for the anthem but not put her hand over her heart as her own form of protest. U.S. #Soccer would later change the rules, allowing social justice messages on warm-up uniforms and allowing players to kneel in their latest friendly match last month.
