Harris to appear in Shrine All-Star game

Saturday night will mark the end of his high school career as Will Harris of Charter Oak HS will take part in the annual Shrine All-Star game at Mt San Antonio College. Harris (6-2, 195, 4.53) is headed to USC in the fall as a free safety and in this interview he talks about the Shrine game and his future college team.

"It's a real privilege to play for kids who are less fortunate than myself. It was real touching to see the kids at the Shrine hospital when we took a visit there. I played Uno with some of them, it was great. It humbled me. We all take life for granted sometimes but that changes when you get a chance to be around those kids.

"The practices for the game have been fun too. You have a chance to meet new friends, I've been hanging out with guys like Laronzo Bursey and Shawn Oatis. I can't wait for the game on Saturday, you're going to see a Trojan out there playing his heart out.

"During the week the players are always talking, asking each other where they are going to school and when I say "USC" you see their eyes get big, they ask me if I need anything, can they get me a drink. It's respect.

"I asked the USC coaches if I could play in this game and they said OK. I'm going to be up there working out though as soon as this game is over. I'm not taking any vacations this summer, I'll take a vacation when football season is over. It's going to be all about competition at USC and I can't wait to get up there to learn off guys like Scott Ware and Darnell Bing and just sponge off everything I can from them."

Harris will wear #22 for the Public school team in the Shrine All-Star game which will be televised on a tape delay basis on KVMD television on Sunday (June 26th) at 4:30pm. For ticket information or to learn more about the game check the Shrine All-Star game website.
