It’s with great sadness that we report that former New England Patriots second round pick, and former Boston College and Burncoat High School legend Ron Brace has passed away.
Sad day. Ron Brace was a legend. He was the biggest player in Boston College history. In high school it was almost unfair having him line up against kids his own age. He threw the shotput 57 feet standing still. He is arguably the greatest football player to ever come out of Worcester, and was listed as fifth in the Turtleboy Sports list of greatest athletes in Worcester’s history. Don’t believe me? Here’s some of his highlights:
Ron Brace ate people for lunch. Poor quarterback from Shepherd Hill didn’t even see him coming.
Not surprisingly one of his fondest high school memory was beating Doherty on Thanksgiving his senior year.
Here is using 330 pound body to force a fumble against the Atlanta Falcons:
Ron Brace went to Burncoat during an era when great players still proudly went to public school. But things have changed a lot since then, and if Ron Brace were in high school today he would likely be heavily recruited by a prep school. Fortunately for fans of Central Mass football, Ron Brace treated them to NFL-calibar play at Foley Stadium.
Originally from Springfield, Ron was 29 years old. We don’t know how he died, just that he was found unresponsive on April 23. Rest in peace to a Worcester legend.
