The Standard: Wrestlemania 36 review


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

The epidemic of the COVID-19 has canceled school, work, and almost all sporting events. As a matter of fact it is very rare for a sporting event to be on right now. That is why I was shocked to see an ad for Wrestlemania and it was free. Since there were no other sports, I decided to watch. I haven’t watched wrestling in years and I didn’t know what to expect, but I can honestly say I was surprisingly entertained.

Even though there was no audience in the crowd for Wrestlemania, the Pay-Per-View was still, in my opinion, one […]

The Standard: The Eddy Games


By Conor Glennon ‘20 and Justin Jefferson ‘20


Behold –  the first ever Eddy Games…

Well, the first ever at Brother Rice at least.

High school students seem to love two things: competition and unity.

What better way to please a crowd than a good old-fashioned, all-school competition?

All students reported to the gym where they sat with their respective houses. From there, student volunteers were called down from the audience. They, then, met as a team and discussed strategies on how to win.

I must say, House Limerick was a heavy favorite to wipe out the competition. You can even ask the guys down in Las […]

The Standard: Brother Rice Inaugural “Be Exceptional” Dinner Dance


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

Last weekend on Saturday, Feb 8, Brother Rice hosted its first annual inaugural Be Exceptional Dinner Dance. The event helped Brother Rice with funding and their financial aid program.

A few other people and I were fortunate enough to help at the event.

Junior Willie Shaw said, “I loved that he was able to connect with others and meet new people.”

Senior Seth Miller, another student who worked the event said, “The dinner dance not only benefited Brother Rice, but also benefited any Rice student who will be affected by the funds raised at the event. The money raised will give […]

The Standard: 3OT – Down to The Last Second


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

It was a hard fought win by the Brother Rice Crusaders basketball team last Tuesday, winning the game in triple overtime against Richards 85-83. The Crusaders are now 13-6 starting the season.

Starting off the game with a 21-6 lead, the Crusaders looked as if this game was going to be an easy one, but they lost the lead late in the third. The team started to rally back towards the end of the game with key shots from Deandre Hagan and Colin Campbell.

Sophomore Coach Duffy said,  “The team lost their composure for a little while, which caused them […]

The Standard: Jack Lausch – The Man, the Myth, the Legend


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

Jack Lausch has been a headline in many stories this past month. The young talented star has lead the Brother Rice Crusaders to a second straight semi-finals while only playing quarterback going into the end of the season.

Most people would fail if challenges like this came at them so unexpectedly, but not Jack Lausch. He said, “I love adversity and having a challenge. I feel that I am a person who is meant to exceed expectations and do extra things that nobody else does.”

Lausch not only plays football, he also pitches for the Brother Rice baseball team and […]

The Standard: Teacher Spotlight on Mr. Malopsy


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

Class of ‘08 graduate Mr. Anthony Matthew Malopsy is a familiar face around the Brother Rice community. This is probably because he is the football team’s defensive coordinator. However, he is taking on new challenges this year.

Coming from a long line of professors and teachers, Mr. Malopsy is following in the path of most of his family members. His mom is a former teacher and currently is an administrator in School District 205; he has two aunts that are college professors; and two uncles who are administrators for different districts in Illinois. As he would say, “teaching is […]

The Standard: Crusader Shadow Day


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

Friday was an eventful day for the Crusaders. They hosted over 175 shadows.

Shadow Matt Phelan said, “This is one of the best shadow days I ever had. I’ve been here before, and it hasn’t been like this. They didn’t have the same thing as they did in the past.”

The pep rally was also a fun part of the day. The pep rally started off with an inspirational speech by former NFL player Tim Terell. He was able to get the shadows and students hyped for the Marist-Rice game later that night.

The four houses also faced off in competition […]
