Harris takes over all-time honors at Terwilliger’s old house

EAST STROUDSBURG — Eiler-Martin Stadium is still referred to by some as Jimmy Terwilliger’s house. Terwilliger is, after all, the most successful football player ever to have donned an East Stroudsburg jersey.

The 2006 graduate is a Harlon Hill Trophy winner, and going into Saturday’s NCAA Division II first-round playoff game between East Stroudsburg and Edinboro, owned every career passing record in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

Not anymore.

Edinboro senior quarterback Trevor Harris etched his name into history yesterday when he surpassed Terwilliger to become the PSAC’s all-time leader in pass completions. Harris completed 28 of 39 passes for 298 yards with three touchdowns as the Fighting Scots downed the Warriors, 31-16, at Eiler-Martin Stadium.

Harris set the record with a seven-yard completion to D’mar Jeter during the Scots’ opening possession of the second half. The completion was the 907th of his career and set up a nine-yard touchdown pass to Shawn Walker that gave the Scots a 24-13 lead.

In true Harris fashion, the two-time Harlon Hill regional finalist had no idea he had broken the mark until a couple of the 40 or so fans that made the trek from Edinboro congratulated him on the sidelines. Even then, Harris was a little confused.

“I didn’t know what happened,” Harris said. “They all started cheering. Then I heard somebody say, ‘Good job, Trevor.’ I was like, ‘What? Yeah, that was a good score and a good play by Shawn (Walker).’ And then somebody said, ‘You broke the completion record.’ There was a big roar after we made an extra point and I was like, ‘I didn’t know extra points were that tough.’ I wasn’t real sure what was going on.”

What was going on was yet another accomplishment in Harris’ storied career at Edinboro. Harris now has 916 completions for his career. He also moved into third place in the PSAC in career touchdown passes with 95, surpassing West Chester’s Mike Mitros, who had 94. Next on the list is Millersville’s Drew Folmar, who holds the second spot with 96 touchdown passes.

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.
    Spence almost gleefully smashed into fullback Bryce Davis during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first full contact drill of training camp on Monday. The two tussled for several seconds before Davis — his fists full of Spence’s jersey — pulled them both to the ground.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
