Funeral arrangements have been announced for a Brush High School student who passed away unexpectedly Tuesday evening.

On Thursday, students wore Cleveland Indians gear because that was Alec's favorite team. They also created a banner full of signatures and messages, and started a memorial in the band room, surrounding the beloved teen's snare drum with flowers.

When the Brush High School hockey team plays its sectional match on Saturday, the players will honor Kornet with black arm bands and stickers on their helmets with his jersey number. There are several tributes planned for the night, including a moment of silence before the game, which will be at the Kent State University ice arena.
