Harris Has Kane Qualities

Like Patrick Kane, Glenbrook North's Nate Harris hopes to bring home title

12/18/2013, 6:45pm CST

By Eli Kaberon

Glenbrook North's Nate Harris swears he doesn't model his game after any NHL players, but he does have a favorite: Patrick Kane. And like the Blackhawks star, Harris hopes he can end his season as a champion.

Ask Nate Harris if he models his game after any professional hockey players and he’ll say no. He watches a lot of guys in the NHL and tries to take parts from each of their styles, but there’s no player he has set out to become.

Watch Harris zoom around the ice for Gelnbrook North and you’ll see otherwise. The end-to-end speed, the sharp stick-handling, the ability to put the puck in the net from a variety of angles, a willingness to take on defenders to give a teammate an open shot. All of it reminiscent of a specific player, one who has earned some hardware for his skills on the ice.

Then look at the back of Harris’ jersey: No. 88, of course.

Harris is a Patrick Kane clone, with the ability to change the game on both ends of the ice. His skills as a goal-scorer, passer and defender, are a primary reason the Spartans are the Sun-Times’ No. 1 team.

“Yeah, he’s my favorite player,” Harris said of the Blackhawks star.

Like Kane, Harris has many responsibilities for his team. The main one is to create offense, something he does quite well. According to the team’s official web site, Harris has scored 35 goals to go along with 31 assists, both of which lead the team. A strong work ethic and attention to detail are responsible for his impressive play.

“I work on my shot a lot in practice, trying new things, seeing what works best,” Harris said. “I’ve been trying to strengthen my hands, because that will improve my stick-handling ability even more.”

The Spartans are more than a one-man team. Glenbrook North coach Evan Poulakidas says that the team has four lines that can score and pass with skill, a rarity among the high school ranks. More importantly, the team defends as well as any in the state.

“We are really skilled and really fast, but not as physical as some other teams,” Poulakidas said. “What sets us apart is the way we can play defense and set the tempo of the game. If we play the tempo we want to, we are tough to beat.”

The depth on the Spartans roster will come in handy, after Harris broke his scapula last Saturday. Out for at least a month, the team’s top player reluctantly will be forced to the sideline.

The injury doesn’t change Glenbrook North’s big picture. It still has the most talented team in Illinois, with its top scorer hoping he can duplicate a feat of his favorite player and bring home a championship.

“Sitting out won’t be fun,” Harris said. “But if we play our game, and play the way we know we’re capable of, we can accomplish our goal, which is a state title.”
