The coach at Chardon (Ohio) High School who confronted shooter T.J. Lane is on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week.

The article, "Do You Remember Chardon?" written by Gary Smith tells the story of Frank Hall, an assistant football coach at the school.

When Hall confronted Lane that day on February 27, 2012, six students had already been shot. Three of them -- Daniel Parmertor, Demetrius Hewlin, and Russell King -- would die of their injuries.
