Harnessing the same passion with which he breaks down an opposing team’s defense for the Cougars, he spearheaded a fundraising drive that culminated Friday night in a $15,000 donation to the downstate school, whose senior administrators were in attendance to receive the check. “We realized what was going on,” Ranallo said of the effort. “We wanted to connect.” And then Ranallo and the Cougars broke down the Broncos.
