Convincing 24-6 Win Over Dayton
T-Mac Connects With Bryce Donnelly On Two Occasions and Runs In A Third
Mustangs TD, While Matthew Dischar Goes Overland For Remaining Mustang Score
Freshman Tyler MacDonald connected with Sophomore Bryce Donnelly on a 19 yard pass-play to get things
rolling for the Mustang JVs early in their contest with the Dayton Greendevils at Davis Field on Monday night.
The Mustangs never looked back. T-Mac carried the pigskin himself to up the score to 12-0 at halftime, on a 7
Matthew Dischar made it 18-0 Mustangs from 6 yards out early in the second half, and MacDonald again
hooked up with Bryce Donnelly on a 38 yard completion to wrap up the Mustangs' scoring for the night. The
JVs allowed Dayton a late game score to make the final 24-6 and improve our record to 2-0 on the season. The
Dayton Greendevil JVs were coming off of a 14-0 conquest of Bellevue.
Mel Webster Thoughts On Todd Schafer's Passing
Most of you probably know by now our good buddy and friend Todd Schafer has lost his battle with his heart. The heart though I will
always remember is the spirit heart of our friend Todd.
I remember standing in the Bishop Brossart gym 13 years ago when this stranger walked in and smiled and said “Hi, my name is Todd
Schafer and I just moved back in town from Louisville and Id like to announce your basketball games.” Health permitting he did just that
for 10 years. However so many got more from Todd than just being a basketball announcer. He became a friend. A friend that sang at
weddings, funerals, special events and put on a special Crooner Christmas Concert every year. Todd always was in need on finances
because of that disability trap that limited the wages he could make and the high cost of medicine which for Todd ran close to $1,000 a
month. Yet he gave most proceeds from his Christmas concerts to other needy people in Alexandria.
Todd once sang in the Lawrence Welk Orchestra and one of the real treats for Brossart fans was his beautiful rendition of the National
Anthem. Fans wondered why he didn't sing every game, but see Todd only had about 20% use of one of his heart chambers. Singing
even one song would require him almost bed rest the following day, but he was a trooper.
Believe me his greatest joy was watching and cheering for his adoptive family at Bishop Brossart the athletes. He would calll me every
game he missed to see how we did. Many times behind the scenes he gave presents to the graduating seniors and special candy gifts
to the Lady 'Stangs. The last couple of years he missed that most. I truly believe the Abby Stadtmiller's and the Alex Trentman's of the
world added years on to his life.
The last time I talked to Todd we was anxious and fired up about getting a small pump put behind his heart to help his blood flow. Sadly
the operation caused a stroke which took away his greatest gift - his deep pleasant voice as we knew it and his gift of song.
Many people slide through life without touching the lives of anyone. Todd touched so many of us. If he was still here he would all of the
Brossart Community to know how much he loved all of you particularly the student athletes as he goes to heaven. Somewhere I can see
him gathering those who passed before and delivering a concert. This time singing pain free and for eternity.
RIP Our Friend! You will be missed
