“It does bring a lot of fire to the locker room,” Allen said. “Just his personality, his track record, and what he’s done for this organization, for this city. Everybody’s excited to have him around, and he’s a fun guy to be around, and brings the morale up of the team, even more than what we have. It’s a blessing to have him back with us.”
Allen said that he wasn’t sure what to expect when he first played with Harrison, but came to appreciate what Harrison brings to the table.READ MORE: Pittsburgh Weather: Cooler Temperatures Start The First Full Day Of Fall
“You never really know- at least I didn’t know- what you’d get out of him, what kind of personality he was. You just hear the stories,” Allen said. “But, when you’re actually around him, you get to meet him, get to talk to him, he’s a very, very good guy to be around and a great teammate. I’m glad that he’s on our side – you know, not the other team’s.”
