Steelers players honor Franco Harris by wearing his jersey ahead of retiring late running back's number

Dec 24, 2022

Members of the Pittsburgh Steelers entered Acrisure Stadium donning Franco Harris jerseys on Saturday before the franchise retires his number 32.

Friday marked the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception, where Harris caught a ball that bounced off fellow Steeler John Fuqua (or Raiders DB Jack Tatum, depending on who you ask) and took it to the end zone to help the Steelers win a playoff game against the then-Oakland Raiders.
