Bryce Middleton went to Nashville Community High School District 99 and studied at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. Valerie Lehr-Heggemeier said she will always remember Bryce as a Little Hornet and then as a big Hornet. Those were some of my happiest times, coming home and watching those boys play. I’m thinking of you and wishing you strength and peace, while Marilyn Pingsterhaus wrote, I remember having conversations with him at school about the Cowboys! I’ve been a fan my whole life and I’d tell him about players such as Roger Staubach and how great Tom Landry was. Your family is in my prayers.
