Harris From Page 1 it was time for us to have one too.” Harris said. Despite the teachers’ lightheartedness, this project is very important to him. “I want to be the first class to be able to say that we did this. I love what I do, and that’s the main reason why I want to do this for my team,” Harris said. In order to bring this project off the drawing board and into reality, a significant
amount of money had to be raised. “My goal [was] to collect $8,000 by the Mater Dei game because it is one of the biggest games of the season if not the biggest game of the season,” Harris said. Many seniors pair up with someone to get through the Senior Project, but Harris got through this solo. “I’m doing it all by myself. Like as far as all the work put
into it, I’m doing this on my own. I’ve gone around to many businesses on the West Side, trying to get the word out,” Harris said. Harris may have been alone doing the work, but in spirit and the public he has many supporters who helped him to achieve his goal. “My dad has been a big help and has helped me pass out flyers and get the word out. Also Coach [Lewis] is
pretty supportive and thinks its a great idea. My teammates are also there for me 100% and they are helping me spread out the word. They are very excited,” Harris said. Harris has succeeded in getting many people to support him and to do this is quiet easy. “All you have to do is go to Old National bank and say you want to donate to the Reitz Football Tunnel. It’s just that easy,” Harris said.

Photo by: Tim Williams - ShootMyPhoto.com The Panthers take the field against the Mater Dei Wildcats by running through the new inflatable tunnel, purchased with funds raised by senior Zack Harris for his senior project. The arrival of the new tunnel was a surprise to Harris. The purchase of the tunnel was approved by the EVSC school board just 10 days before the game, but Harris’ father arranged for the tunnel to be shipped in time for the West Side Nut Club trophy game. The Panthers fell to the Wildcats this year, but they did come out onto the field in style.
