AT MIAMI: A key player the last three seasons, filling a critical role for the Hurricanes as a long snapper on punts, field goals and conversion kicks… returned to his starting spot in 2002 after missing the last six games of the 2001 season due to a major knee injury that required surgery.


2002 (JUNIOR): Successfully executed 123 snaps without an error… returned to the job as the full-time deep snapper midway through the season after working exclusively on field goals and point-after conversions earlier… stabilized the long snapping duties by taking over the job for both field goals and punts midway through the season.


2001 (SOPHOMORE): Excellent deep snapper and former walk-on who earned a scholarship prior to the 2001 season… was lost for the remainder of the regular season due to a knee injury suffered during the Florida State game… was initially replaced by Joel Rodriguez before Joe Fantigrassi took over for the remainder of the season… a reliable snapper whose presence was missed in the ensuing weeks following his injury.


2000 (FRESHMAN): Named the winner of the Albert Bentley Award for the team’s Most Valuable Walk-On… provided flawless long snapping for the Hurricanes as he perfectly executed 18 field goal attempts, 50 punts and 58 conversion kicks during the regular season… Harvey’s 126 snaps during the regular season went off without a hitch.


1999 (REDSHIRT): Spent season on the UM offensive scout team.


HIGH SCHOOL: Man… three-year letterman at center and long snapper… also saw action at defensive tackle… had a string of 100 long-snaps without an error in his three seasons… made 80 tackles in his senior season with 7.5 sacks, three fumbles caused, two fumbles recovered and four pass break-ups… named to the West Virginia Associated Press first-team All-State as a senior… chosen a finalist for the Hunt Award, given to the state’s top lineman… team captain… also lettered for three seasons on the baseball team… named to the second-team All-State as a pitcher his senior year… graduated 12th in his class… coached by William Carter.


PERSONAL: Chose Miami over West Virginia, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech… son of Perry and Lola Harvey.
