DECATUR, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Colts quarterback and Norwell grad Chandler Harnish along with Marine Corporal Josh Bleill were at Bellmont High School Monday night telling their stories.

Harnish was “Mr. Irrelevant,” which means he was the last player taken in the 2012 draft. Harnish says the NFL inspires him to make these appearances. Bleill lost both legs while on active duty in Iraq. He is now the Indianapolis Colts community spokesperson and travels the country spreading the message of hope one step at a time.

All proceeds from the event went to the wounded warriors.
