On November 13th, 1964, the small town of Logansport, Louisiana, was changed;  never to be the same.  Our local hero and football quarterback, Kenneth Harvey, was injured making a seemingly routine tackle, but forever paralyzed from the brainstem contusion injury.  He would never walk again.

Watch this little video we put together including some photos of Kenneth's early years:

Life Time with Kenneth Harvey Video

In 2009, a group of friends, classmates, and coaches honored Kenneth with a celebration of his life and even erected a monument in his honor at the current site of the Tiger football field. Somehow, this still didn't feel like enough.

Plans are underway to film a documentary on the life of Kenneth Harvey.  Not just about Kenneth, but his family, his coaches, his classmates, and yes, his community. This documentary will tell the story of a man who grew up in a small town home in Bethel, the son of a couple who endured enough pain and heartbreak that most of us cannot fathom.

It is our prayer that you will find it in your heart to contribute to see this documentary come to fruition.  A Kenneth Harvey Special Needs Trust Fund has been set up for supplement benefits needed by Kenneth.  In addition, through the leadership of Ben Freeman and the support of an Advisory Planning Team, made up of friends and classmates, GAMECHANGER: The Kenneth Harvey Story, L.L.C. has been established to receive contributions for making the documentary.

This is a story that needs to be told, and it needs to be told in Kenneth's lifetime.  Director, Troy LeBlanc, from San Antonio, has been working for more than a year on background material and interviews.  It will take contributions to produce and market the documentary, around $50,000.00.
