Zach 'Hornet' Thornton a driving force for Loyola soccer
Sixteen years ago, he cruised the streets near John Carroll and what was then Loyola College in a Nissan Sentra, a fresh and eager youth who was ready to play, ready to compete. Back then he was known as "The Hornet," not because of his hulking, quarterback-worthy 6-foot-2 stature, but because his prized Sentra was brown — a reference to the Brown Hornet superhero from the Fat Albert cartoons.
