Harry Carson Biography
Harry Carson was born November 26, 1953 in Florence, South Carolina and is a former American football inside linebacker who played his entire career for the New York Giants in the NFL(1976-1988). Originally from South Carolina, he played at Wilson High School and later at McClenaghan High School, from which he graduated. Carson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
Carson was drafted in the fourth round of the 1976 NFL Draft by the Giants. He spent all of his 13 seasons with them, leading the team in tackles for 5 of the seasons, and was their captain for 10 of those seasons. Carson was a member of the Crunch Bunch, a team of fierce linebackers composed of Carson, Brad Van Pelt, Brian Kelley, and Lawrence Taylor. The group is widely considered one of the best defensive combos in NFL history. He also made 9 Pro Bowl appearances (1978-1979, 1981-1987) in his career. In the 1980s, he was joined by linebackers Lawrence Taylor and Carl Banks, giving the Giants one of the most feared and respected group of linebackers in the NFL. He retired at the end of the 1988 season, two years after assisting the franchise to its first Super Bowl win in Super Bowl XXI. He was a major factor in the game, finishing it with 7 tackles.
Carson was one of the first practitioners of the Gatorade Shower which is when the coach of the winning team is doused with a cooler of Gatorade by some of the players following a win. The practice was started by his teammate Jim Burt in 1985.
