Throwback Tulsa: Booker T. Washington legendary coach Nate Harris honored at memorial service two years ago

For many of those who experienced the Nate Harris memorial service two years ago today, their everyday associations with the coach might have lasted for four years or maybe through the 25-year entirety of his greatness at Booker T. Washington.

At 72, Harris passed away April 30, 2019.

Harris is known for having been one of the more prominent high school coaches in Oklahoma history, and his body of work resulted in getting his name on the field house of his alma mater.

Harris’ service occurred, of course, on the game floor of BTW’s Nathan E. Harris Field House.

The audience included some of the giants of Booker T. Washington and Tulsa basketball. Harris-coached Hornets Etan Thomas, Ryan Humphrey, Melvin Gilliam and Arthur Thomas were there.

The service ended perfectly — with a performance from members of the BTW marching band.
