Harrison, a ruckman, was known for his aggressive style of play. He spent the 1954 and 1955 seasons with the reserves and then joined the Navy as part of his National service which delayed his senior debut until 1958. His tagging job on Ron Barassi helped Collingwood win the 1958 Grand Final, as he not only kept the ball away from the Melbourne midfielder but also roughed him up, as demonstrated by his report for charging.
He was delisted at the end of the 1961 season and after an unsuccessful return to the league with North Melbourne, Harrison became captain-coach of Sandringham. From 1965 to 1969 he was coach of the VFA club, the final three years in a non playing capacity.
