It was just six years ago that Duron Harmon helped lead the Riders to the 2008 State Championship Title. Now, Duron has a new title: Super Bowl Champion.
People on Delmarva are proud to see it happen.
"It's nice having someone from our area be able to live his dream and us all be able to appreciate it as well," said Josh Ferris, one of Duron's former teammates from Caesar Rodney. "I think if anyone was to be put in that position it should be Duron because not only was he an exceptional athlete but he's very intelligent and he's a good, warm-hearted, humble person too."
At Duron's alma mater, Caesar Rodney, the halls are filled with supportive signs and pictures for their former Rider. Two of his former coaches at Caesar Rodney were glad to see his success.
"We're very proud that he's a Caesar Rodney Rider," said Duron's former head football coach, Mike Schonewolf.
"He's living everybody's dream," explained another one of Duron's coaches, John Newman. "Every time I see him I say Duron, you make me smile buddy. I said I love you and I said keep doing it."
Even though he wears a different jersey now, Duron's Caesar Rodney family says once you're a Rider, you're always a Rider.
