Brush High School alum Roy Hall helps lay building blocks for his hometown community image Brush High School alum Roy Hall helps lay building blocks for his hometown community

Tyrie Liddell appeared nervous.

An eighth grader at Memorial junior high in the Brush school district, Liddell had just taken first place in the SELebrate Moms 5K road race, sponsored by the South Euclid-Lyndhurst school district.

He was the champ.

But Liddell fidgeted back and forth standing before Roy Hall, a legendary multi-sport athlete in the early 2000s from Brush who went on to play football at Ohio State and in the NFL.

Hall smiled, probably because he knew what Liddell was thinking and feeling. After all, it wasn’t that long ago that he was a junior high-schooler in awe of those who came through the school before him.

“You took first?” said Hall, with Liddell nodding in affirmation.

“I took second,” Hall joked with the youngster, adding some levity to the moment.

When Liddell told him he ran the 5K race in 20:28, Hall lightened the mood a little more.

“I ran a 20:29,” Hall said.

Again the boy smiled.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Hall patted Liddell on the shoulder and said, “good job.”

 
High school baseball: Brush showing improvement in coach’s second year image High school baseball: Brush showing improvement in coach’s second year

The untimely passing of Brush junior Alec Kornet in February rocked the entire Arcs community, especially the teammates he played with on the soccer, hockey and baseball teams.

When Tony Maniglia’s team began its season with four games in Tampa, Fla., a pall still hung over the Arcs. Then, in Brush’s first game against New York’s Trinity School, Alec’s younger brother, sophomore Michael, stepped to the plate in the seventh inning of a tie game.

Kornet’s single sent Evan Mularo home and the Arcs walked off winners after a moment Maniglia couldn’t have scripted any better.

“It was enlightening,” Maniglia said. “It really was. Everybody was down and here comes the brother to win the game.”

The Arcs were able to clinch the Western Reserve Conference in a closely contested affair with Madison, beating the Blue Streaks by a score of 63-55.


Tyler Williams led all scorers with 18 points, while guards Andre Harris and Deion Burton contributed with 14 and 13 points respectively. Leading scorer for Madison was Zach Guyer with 16.

More importantly, this was the first game since the tragic and untimely death of Brush hockey and baseball player Alec Kornet. Alec’s passing was felt all throughout the community and this game was evident of that. Along with a moment of silence in remembrance of the junior, Brush also honored Alec with a banner with his number 4 which will hang in the Cleveland Heights ice rink. Throughout the night, the Brush crowd showed their love for their fellow student, chanting Alec’s name numerous times, as well as “Play for Alec” as the Arcs clinched the victory.
