After working hard all summer the season had finally arrived. Once I realized I was starting the first game at Hillcrest, there was no better feeling. Football is not special because of the actual game but being able to take the field with your brothers is something that I will never forget.

Football gave me so many memories and I was able to form relationships that will last a lifetime.

The weather at kickoff consisted of sleet which covered the field in slush. The temperatures were also very frigid and affected much of the play throughout the night.

The Standard: Snow Days

Over this past week, the Chicagoland area was hit with massive amounts of snow. The Brother Rice community was also affected by this snowfall.

Last week school was canceled on Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday the snow hit our area very hard. This included 10 inches of snow with the streets being backed up. This forced Brother Rice to fully cancel school last Wednesday.

The Standard: Mother’s Club Mum Sale

In September, the Brother Rice Mothers Club hosted the annual mum sale. The Mothers Club does very good work for the school and the mum sale is a big part of it.
