KCOB Trevor “Jumpy” Harris was recently inducted into the Michigan State University (MSU) Athletic Hall of Fame.  Trevor represented MSU in Soccer from 1967 to 1969.

Trevor was represented at the awards ceremony by his son, Wolde Harris, as he was unable to travel due to health issues.

Trevor is the first member of the Spartan soccer program to enter the Hall of Fame. One of the leading scorers in school history, the two-time All-American led the Spartans to a pair of NCAA co-Championships.

Trevor was one of four players from Kingston, Jamaica, to play for Kenney and the Spartans in the late 1960s along with Tony Keyes, Frank Morant and Les Lucas. All four played at Kinston College together.

"It was a real culture shock," Trevor said with a laugh during a 2008 interview with "Remember, I came from warm weather and beautiful sunshine. You can imagine how it felt to see 26 inches of snow on the ground."
