Pittsburgh’s mayor, Ed Gainey, has declared December 24 as Franco Harris Day in the city. He said during the proclamation, “50 years ago today Franco Harris made the immaculate reception and led the way to the Steelers winning 4 Super Bowls,” further adding, “Today we honor not just his talents on the field, but his success off of it. Pittsburgh will always remember him for his generosity and kind spirit. May his memory is a blessing for all of us.”

The Acrisure Stadium had organised a replay of the famous Immaculate Reception by Harris, which was attended by hundreds of fans despite the freezing Pittsburgh weather.

At the event, the legendary running back’s son, Dok Harris, told ESPN, “It’s really hard to process, but it’s been hitting really differently over the last few days. What’s difficult and what’s also beautiful is that this isn’t something for my mother and for me, this for everybody.”

“People [have been] telling me stories about how they met him sometime in 1977 or 1987 or 1991. It was important to them, and it made a difference in their lives. And that’s really the beauty of my father, truly a very blessed soul who just really sought to help everybody out”, he further added.
