Highwood’s Little Guys team continues to be recognized for its national and international championship wins in 1957 and 1961. The men’s teams sponsored by the American Legion and others from the 1930s through the ’50s were highly ranked in county tournament competitions. Ask an “old timer” about Highwood’s sports history and many stories and fond memories could be unearthed. Highwood’s Little Guys won two championships. One in 1957 and one in 1961. The Highwood American legion team played from the 1930s through the ’50s.

Later, Theriault launched The Brave Way, an organization dedicated to teaching people how to increase their personal safety and developed programs for schools, park districts, corporate companies, realty companies and battered women shelters. “It’s always lighthearted,” Theriault said. “I always crack a few jokes in there because where there’s laughter, there’s learning. If I can’t get them to loosen up, it’s hard.” Some people, especially victims of trauma, don’t want to be touched. Theriault aims his training to show people techniques that will make them safer without pushing them beyond comfort. The Brave Way Fund is a Go- FundMe crowd-funded campaign Theriault launched to help sponsor classes he teaches in shelters and high poverty school districts. It’s a light-hearted class to make the seriousness of the subject matter more palatable, he said. As difficult as it is to imagine being attacked, The Brave Way prepares people for such a circumstance so if it ever happens, they can defend themselves instead of freezing up.
