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 latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
