St. Vincent-St. Mary has a young man who is a star on both the soccer field and the gridiron. To show you how well known Antonio Manfut and the Fighting Irish Boys Soccer team is, LeBron James was in the stands to see him on the pitch Thursday night against Medina.
Fighting Irish head soccer coach John Stavros said he feels very fortunate to have Antonio on the team, even though he has to share him with the football team.
Manfut says he can remember back to when he was 6 and 7 years old when he was playing on two youth soccer teams.

The High School Football season takes another turn as conference play begins tonight.
In the Suburban League, all eight high schools are in action. Among the games, the Tallmadge Blue Devils play host to the Revere Minutemen.
It was a difficult non-league schedule for Revere. The Minutemen lost to Chagrin Falls, North Royalton and Aurora. Chagrin Falls and Aurora made the State High School Football Playoffs last year and North Royalton won nine games.
Revere head coach Phil Hein says he's looking for his offense to do what they do best tonight, and that's run the football.
Hein says he is not fooled by the 1-2 record that Tallmadge has. Hein says he knows that Joe Vassalotti's team has a lot of talent and will feature a balanced attack on offense between running and passing.
You'll be able to hear tonight's game between Tallmadge and Revere on 1590 WAKR. Kickoff is slated for 7 o'clock.
