The mother of former Oregon All-American Cliff Davis took to Facebook to respond to comments about her son’s recent arrest on probation violations and drug charges.

The former Duck was arrested in California Saturday and also faces charges of theft.

Taking to Facebook, Harris’s mother Lizette talked about the difficulty of seeing the change in her son, going from someone who was happy and confident to “a hurting and painful person.”

She also discussed how some people who had been around for her son’s success had now not offered even "a phone call or a hello."

Lizette Harris also said that while others may “laugh, mock and make jokes,” she will always love her son and be there for him.

Oregon dismissed Harris from the football program in June 2011 after he was caught speeding with a suspended license. He was also arrested three times during a nine-day period in 2013.
