Senior forward Brendan Barry takes charge, literally, with 22 for Marist

 
Marist's Brendan Barry takes a shot against Marian Catholic during a game on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018.

 

Marist senior Brendan Barry doesn’t possess eye-popping individual statistics.

The 6-foot-3 forward is averaging five points and three rebounds.

But when it comes to sacrificing and toughness, Barry is in a class by himself, according to coach Tim Trendel.

“I feel like I’ve coached a lot of tough players in my day, but Brendan is definitely in the top two or three,” Trendel said. “He is tough, committed, selfless and sacrifices his body for the team.

“Our team is better when he is on the court. He is everything we want in a RedHawks basketball player.”

The most telling statistic is the 22 charges Barry has taken — a testament to giving up his body for the betterment of the team.

His physical sacrifice isn’t exclusive to basketball. Barry was a starting tight end on the football team, and is an outside hitter in volleyball.

The Oak Lawn native is the rare three-sport athlete.

“In grade school I played five sports,” he said. “Once I got to high school, I settled on the three sports I love most.”

Barry comes from a sports-crazed family, His father, Kevin, played quarterback for Marist. His mother, Mary, played volleyball at Maria.

His two older brothers are Marist grads. Brian played basketball and volleyball and Jack played basketball and football.

Competing is in the Barry family’s blood.

“I’ll have a little bragging rights, being the only one to play three sports,” Brendan said with a laugh.

When he goes to college, however, Barry has decided to give up competitive sports. He confirmed it will be a big adjustment.

“It’s going to feel really weird,” Barry said. “It’s going to be hard. I’m going to go from no free time to all kinds of free time, but I want to really focus on school.”

Right now, Barry is focused on ending the basketball season on a positive note before shifting to volleyball.

The RedHawks (10-12, 2-5) have been inconsistent.

Barry, though, believes the best is yet to come.

“We have the talent and we’ve competed with some really good teams,” Barry said. “We need to get out of our own heads, play defense and box out. I think we can make a run.”

Barry is willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.

“I know I’m not the guy with the most talent,” he said. “I’m not going to score a lot of points. But I’ll rebound, play defense and take charges.

“The team success is what I like to see. That’s all I care about.”
