My time at Brother Rice High School has been amazing. The first time I stepped into the school, I knew it was going to be a special experience. Some of the best memories came from going to the sporting events. Being in the Crusader Crazies was like nothing else. The energy, the chants, the hype. It was something else. Cheering on our team with my friends, while wearing the maroon and orange was a feeling I wish everyone could experience.

Every day at Brother Rice was a new adventure. Walking through the halls, you never knew what you were going to see or who you were going to run into. One thing that I’ve noticed in my four years here is that there was always something to laugh about. If it was a funny moment in class or just messing around with friends during lunch, there was never a dull moment.

I came in freshman year only knowing a handful of people to making lifelong friends just within a couple of weeks. Some of my favorite memories came from my study hall my junior year. There was always a laugh in that class.

I was a member of lacrosse and BRTV. Playing lacrosse freshman and sophomore year was a blast. Practicing hard, and just being part of the team was an experience I’ll never forget. BRTV was another place I’ve made hundreds of memories. Talking about Crusader athletics and laughing on air with thousands of people was something that I will never forget.

All in all, my time at Brother Rice High School has been nothing short of special. From the games to the laughs in the hallways to the friends I made, Brother Rice will always be a special place for me. I will never forget the memories and friendships I made here at 99th and Pulaski.
