William Percival "Percy" Harvin, III (born May 28, 1988) is an American football wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League. He was voted Offensive Rookie of the Year for the 2009/10 season by the Associated Press.

Harvin played college football at the University of Florida when the Gators won two BCS national championships. He attended and played football for Landstown High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where his team won the Virginia High School State Championship in 2004.

Percy was born to William Percival Harvin, Jr. and wife Linda in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where after his father's departure, he lived with his mother, and his older sister Lintera. His mother Linda ran a daycare out of their home as Percy helped with the children. Percy's mother ran track at Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach and later coached an AAU track team. His sister, Lintera, also ran track, both at Salem High School in Virginia Beach and at Eastern Michigan University. As a child, Percy was a gifted natural athlete with boundless energy, whose prowess was first noted as a six-year old flag football participant. In 2000, at age 12, he was a member of the National Champion 4x100m relay team in the Midget (11-12) Age Group. At age 13, he played for Coach Bruce Pearl and the Virginia Beach Mustangs Pop Warner football team where he led the team to a Pop Warner National Championship.
