PORT ALLEN — Grover Harrison III remembers what he told Tracy Porter when the New Orleans Saints cornerback signed his first pro contract three years ago.
“Money is a magnifier,” Harrison said he told Porter. “If you’re a bad person, it gives you an opportunity to do a lot of bad things. If you’re a good person, it gives you the opportunity to do more of the good things.”
Harrison was on hand Sunday at D.C.’s Grill as Porter, back home as the Saints enjoyed a bye week, celebrated an early Thanksgiving with needy families from the Port Allen area.
Porter treated the families to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, reaching out to the community where he began his road to NFL stardom.
“I know what type of upbringing I had — it was tough,” Porter said. “I’m in a position where I can help others, and that’s something that I’m all about doing.”
