Bio

Harry Douglas is a wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons. He was named to the All-Big East team twice at his time at the University of Louisville. He was named to the All-American Second-Team in 2007.

EARLY YEARS

Douglas was born on September 16, 1984 in Tampa, Florida. In three years of football at Jonesboro High School, Douglas caught 80 passes for 1,539 yards and 14 TDs.

He was ranked as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and picked Louisville over Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Missouri.

UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE

After two slow seasons to start his career, Douglas put together back-to-back 70-plus reception seasons with 1,265 and 1,159 receiving yards, respectively. He led the Big East Conference in receiving yards both of those years. He led the conference in yards as a junior and second in yards as a senior.

His 2,881 career receiving yards is fourth all-time in the conference.

ATLANTA FALCONS

Douglas was drafted by the Falcons in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. As a rookie he was mostly used as a punt returner. He returned a punt 61 yards for a TD that season.

Until the 2013 NFL Season, Douglas’ career-high was 498 receiving yards on 39 receptions. With both Roddy White and Julio Jones dealing with injuries, Douglas put together a career year. He made a career-high 11 starts and caught 85 passes for 1,067 yards and two TDs.
