College Football Hall of Famer Major Harris to Appear at Horror Realm
Former WVU quarterback featured in horror film “The Axeman of Henderson County”
By: Horror Realm
Harris, who graduated from Brashear High School then moved on to become one of the greatest quarterbacks in West Virginia University history, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2009. He is a two-time Heisman Trophy nominee, finishing fifth in the voting in 1988 and third in 1989. Harris is currently an assistant wide receiver coach at North Hills High School.
Harris’s tie to the horror community comes from a role in the 2014 independent film “The Axeman of Henderson County”. The film was written and directed by the husband and wife team of Larry and Cindy Parmiter of Semi-Charmed Productions, both of whom will also be appearing at Horror Realm. Larry Parmiter’s synopsis of the film is “a small town is terrorized by an axe-wielding serial killer in this campy, tongue in cheek thriller/comedy”
Major Harris will be on hand to meet fans at Horror Realm on Friday, March 6 from 5 PM to 10 PM; Saturday, March 7 from 10 AM to 7 PM and Sunday, March 8 from 11 AM to 5 PM. This will be his first Pittsburgh area horror convention appearance. Fans will also have the opportunity to see the film at the convention on Saturday, March 7 at 6 PM.
