Adams County and area residents of all ages, as well as Norwell's Youth for Christ group, packed the Erekson Theater at Bellmont High School Monday night for an evening with Indianapolis Colts player Chandler Harnish and Marine Corporal Josh Bleill, a Colts community spokesperson.
Harnish, 24, and a backup quarterback for the Colts, took the stage and told the story of his journey from Norwell athlete to NFL player, giving all credit to God.
Bleill, an Indiana native and author of the book "One Step at a Time," addressed the crowd, standing on prosthetic legs with the assistance of a cane. He was perfectly at ease and made the crowd laugh several times, lightening his touching story.
