Franco Harris' Immaculate Reception Steelers 1972

Franco Harris' Steelers Immaculate Reception

Franco Harris’ “Immaculate Reception” is remembered as one of the most dramatic plays in Pittsburgh Steelers and NFL history. Franco made the legendary catch in the Steelers’ playoff game against the Oakland Raiders in 1972. This pivotal play set in motion forces that would lead to four Super Bowl wins in the 1970s alone: 1974, ‘75, ‘78 and ‘79.

“It seems like yesterday,” Harris said.

“Joe always said, ‘Go to the ball. Go to the ball,’” Harris said. “One of the things I’ve always been proud of was I was going to the ball. Things happen when you keep hustling.”

“I have to admit,” Harris smiled, “every time I see it, it still sends chills down my spine. It has a life of its own.”
