Lord have Mercy

Lockport's gentle giant Khari Demos, signs on for Mercyhurst

(Continued)

LOCKPORT —

Bronson said among Khari’s many interests is as a big supporter and friend to physically-handicapped classmate Tawfiq Baity, who got a surprise visit recently from pro football star Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots.
“Tawfiq used to come out to our practices and Khari helped look after him,” Bronson said. “He’s a kind-hearted young person.”
In addition to his exploits on the field, Demos is involved in other extra-curricular actiivites, including Interact Club, UNYTS, Senior Class Council, morning announcements, chorus, vocal jazz ensemble and a member of the cast of the school musical “Ragtime.”
Demos said he wanted to be remembered as someone who led by example, worked as hard as he could and did whatever needed to be done to help his team — sports or otherwise.
“I want to be remembered also as someone who ultimately helped bring a division title to Lockport, which is something not many can say and something that will always mean a lot to me,” Demos said.
The Mercyhurst football team is coached by Marty Schaetzle. The Lakers finished 9-2 overall a year ago and were 6-1 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West Division.
