Brick is the hero of the story. A hero is defined as:
1a : a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability b : an illustrious warrior c : a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities d : one who shows great courage
2a : the principal male character in a literary or dramatic work b : the central figure in an event, period, or movement
3plural usually he·ros : submarine 2
4: an object of extreme admiration and devotion : idol
Brick was a football hero and principal male character. Therefore, the definition of hero in this story would fall under numbers one and four.
Thank you but I don't think this answer goes deeply enough into either hero or the characters in the play. Although, you might be right.
