SWOC honors former Little Miami RB Brayden Thornbury

SALEM TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Southwest Ohio Conference honored former Little Miami running back Brayden Thonbury Wednesday by unanimously naming him first team all-conference.

Thornbury, set to graduate in June, passed away on Sep. 12, nearly one week after a single-car accident in Salem Township. In his final game just seven days earlier, Thornbury rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown in a loss to Western Brown.

The Little Miami football team dedicated their season to Thornbury.

Brayden's family released this open letter to the Little Miami community following his death.

Thank you for the overwhelming outpouring of love for Brayden and for our family. We are deeply appreciative of the support and comfort you have collectively extended to us over the course of the last two weeks. We will never forget all of those who "prayed for Bray."

We thank the first responders and those at Miami Valley Hospital who cared for our precious son. We are deeply appreciative of the students, parents, teachers, coaches, administrators and staff of Little Miami High School, particularly Brayden's teammates and personal friends. Your ongoing expressions of support and remembrance continually renew our hope and strength. Pastor Ron Corbin and the members of Fellowship Baptist Church have been with us throughout this trying time. Larry at Tufts Schildmeyer Funeral Home provided Brayden with care and loving attention. We are forever grateful to them, and to all of those who participated in the truly beautiful services celebrating the life of our son Bray.

Thank you to friends, family, coworkers and others for the countless donations, flowers, meals, and the other gifts and acts of kindness that have sustained us. We take comfort in knowing that all of you will continue to treasure Brayden in your hearts.

Sincerely,

Jeanne, Ron and Daniel Thornbury
