An international import from Kingston, Jamaica, Trevor ‘Jumpy’ Harris helped guide the Michigan State soccer team to back-to-back Co-National Championships during the 1967 and 1968 seasons. The Harris-led Spartans were prolific scorers, setting the school record with 77 goals during the 1968 season. He is the first member of the Spartan soccer program to enter the Hall of Fame.
Harris was a true goal scorer who helped head coach Gene Kenney’s powerhouse teams share national titles in 1967-68 with a combined record of 23-1-5. The two-time All-American finished his illustrious Spartan career with 48 goals, which still ranks third on MSU’s all-time list. From 1967-69, Harris earned 116 points, which also still stands as third-most in Michigan State history.
