The Standard: The Last Rodeo


By Danny White ‘22

¨Yo, what class do you have first period?¨

I remember asking that to all my classmates on schedule pick up day, what feels like a month ago. But it was actually 10 months ago.

I like to think of this school year in three different parts – fall, winter and spring. All three were fun-filled and action-packed.

Fall season flew by. Then winter had to have been at most three days. And spring, I was just enjoying my last few days here. So, I’m going to go back through this year and recall my amazing last rodeo.

The football season had to […]

The Standard: What a Great Time


By Dylan Warda ‘22

From the very first day of the school year, I knew this was going to be a fun year. I got lucky with my schedule and got classes that I was excited about.

The thing that made each day so great were the people. At Brother Rice, it seemed like everyone understood each other.

We could be super open with our classmates and our teachers. We’ve had some of the most interesting conversations and in class discussions.

It was great to finally get a year that was normal. Other than having to wear masks for the first half of the school […]

The Standard: Wrapping It Up


By Connor O’Malley ‘22

When people say high school goes by fast, I did not realize it would fly by that fast. Brother Rice only has a couple more days of school until the seniors start a whole new life. I am excited for the University of Dayton, but I am also sad I will be leaving Brother Rice.

I am going to miss all of the friends I have made at this school. Going to games with them after school was the best part of it all. My favorite game had to be the semi-final in 2018 against Marist in football. I […]

The Standard: The Last Dance


By Liam Nelligan ‘22

My experience at Rice has been more than I could have ever expected coming into the school freshman year. A lot of great things happened throughout my four years that exceeded all of my expectations.

Freshman year was really great and welcoming for me. A great experience I had that year was going down to the University of Illinois to watch the football team compete for a state championship title.

I also made lifelong friends within my first few months at Rice.

A class I really enjoyed was Coach Vogt’s broadcast/journalism class. It really helped me learn the basics of a […]

The Standard: Best High School on the South Side


By Kevin Murphy ‘22

When I think back on my four years at Rice, I mostly think about all the times I have been crying laughing in my classroom seat and all the funny moments I had here. I am glad that as my years went by, everyone became much better friends and going to school got more and more fun every day.

By far my favorite part at Rice was the Crusader Crazies. When I was in grammar school, I would always look at the student section and think to myself how badly I wanted to be in it. They looked like […]

The Standard: Four Years Flew By


By Carter McAlilly ‘22

These four years at Brother Rice have been the best time of my life. I have met so many new people and made so many friends.

Freshman year, I learned what it means to be a Crusader. Being a Crusader meant being my best self and helping others along the long road ahead. Little did I know how many memories and new friends I would make in my next four years at Brother Rice.

My life as a Crusader really took a turning point sophomore year. When I was moved up to play football on the varsity team, I was […]

The Standard: Blink of an Eye


By Sean Maloney ‘22

When I was finishing 8th grade, everyone told me high school would go by “in the blink of an eye”. I believed that it’d fly by, but not as fast it did.

I feel like just yesterday I was suiting up to play a freshman football game. Now, I’m a captain of the track team. I’m graduating now, and I don’t know where the time went.

Aside from having a great time and making friends that will last a lifetime, Brother Rice has taught me many things. After going on this recent trip to Peru, I’ve learned how to live […]

The Standard: End of the Road: Football


By Jack Mallon ‘22

It’s crazy to think that this year is over. It feels like yesterday that I was starting summer football camp as a freshman.

As time flies, you don’t realize the moments and memories that you create. From rivalry games to messing around at practice with your friends, these memories are ones I will never forget and will forever cherish.

I am forever grateful for the friends I created because of football, the friendships I shared and the memories after games. The team was like a community. We learned to love each other and grew as a family.

Especially after the 2021 […]

The Standard: The Last Dance


By Connor Mahay ‘22

I have been a part of the Brother Rice baseball program throughout the entirety of my career at Brother Rice High School. Being a part of that program has taught me the most valuable things that I have learned in the short 18 years that I have been alive. I have also created some great memories along the way.

Nothing out of the previous three years has come close to how much I am enjoying my fourth and final year of baseball. The 2022 Brother Rice varsity baseball team is the best group that I have ever been a […]

The Standard: Time Flies When You’re Having Fun


By Tony Macellaio ‘22

The last year of high school was the fastest year of my life. At the end of summer, I remember thinking to myself about how busy my senior year would be. Looking back, I wish I would have lived in the moment a little more.

Coming to Brother Rice was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. This school has helped me learn to make positives out of negative situations. During sophomore year the teachers I had gave me a lot of assistance throughout the pandemic.

There have been a handful of people in this building that I will […]
