It’s time to separate… time for homecoming… and time for conference play… It is unseasonable warm here in Illinois… most Friday night lights kick off were around 82 degrees… Whew!

Here’s our recap for conference play in our coverage area:

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

Saturday, September 23

Crete-Monee 48, Rich East 12

Crete-Monee knocks off conference foe Rich East 48-12

Rich East (1-4, 0-1) took an early 6-0 lead on a well-orchestrated seven-play, 83-yard drive, which concluded with Malik Ecford (3 of 9 passes for 90 yards) hit Robert Sanner on an 11-yard pass for the score at 7:17 of the first quarter. But, that was about it for the Rockets.

Isaiah Rucker and the offense took over. Rucker then demonstrated his QB talents on the afternoon in the victory by completing 14 of 16 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns.

“There’s nothing wrong with short passes,” Rucker said with a smile. “I get a little itchy to throw it long. But we’re winning and that’s all that matters.”

On the ground, Da’Tuan Carter got into the endzone on two different occasions, runs of 23 and 3 yards. He finished the game with 71 yards on six carries.

Warriors’ defense held Rich East to 247 yards.

“I’m happy we won,” Crete-Monee coach John Konecki said. “We can play better. We have a lot of guys who can touch the ball and take it to the rack.”

Up next will be a first-place showdown Friday night between the Warriors and Rich Central (4-1, 2-0) in Olympia Fields. Get your popcorn ready….

Friday, September 22

Hillcrest soar over Titans

In front of a jammed packed crowd, Hillcrest defended their homecoming quest defending South Suburban Blue Tinley Park, 33 – 7.  The humid conditions didn’t really play a role whatsoever in this game. Both teams came out with lots of energy which included three back-to-back penalties on the Hawks D for off-sides.

Once the nerves calmed, the Hawks attacked. Hawks score first and never looked back.

QB Rocky Griffin finished the game with two touchdown passes both to Nick Lindley. On the ground, Andre Smith scored twice from 5  and 30 yards, along with Dakari Smith, who also scored on a strong two-yard blast right before the half.

The visiting Titans (2-3, 1-2) got on the board with a 8yd pass from senior Ryan Zientara to 5’9″ David Morgan.

This was solid victory for Hillcrest (4-1, 2-1) as they begin to set the tone for the conference play.

St. Rita delivered a fantastic victory Friday night against Mount Carmel, 38-21, their cross-town rival and Catholic League foe behind the play of senior Chris Childers.

Childers finished with 90 yards rushing and added a 24-yard touchdown reception for St. Rita (4-1, 1-1).

“The O-line does great, I just need to make better reads on my runs,” he said. “I need to be a little more patient.”

2017 BIG Ten Football Week 3

Posted on September 16, 2017. Filed under: Football, NCAA Sports, Sporting News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

BIG Ten Week 3…

September 15, 2017

PrezRo
compiled by Prez Ro
follow back at @PrezRo365

Week 3 could dictate a lot in the BIG Ten…  Big Ten went 9-4 record during Week 2 so, again, who will remain undefeated? Teams can not let opportunities slip away. Let’s recap Week 3….

2347

As we board the plane to head back to Illinois, the thing we remember the most from this game is PENALTIES! Whew…. Ok. USF and Illinois racked up penalties at almost an all-time record where 26 combined flags accepted. They would finish with 31 combined. USF won the game, 47-23, but that’s beside the point. If all you can remember is yellow flags in a game, there’s a problem.

The NCAA record is 42 penalties, from a 1986 game between North Carolina Central and St. Paul’s. The Division I record is 39, which has happened in four games. The FBS record is 36, from a 1986 game between San Jose State and Fresno State. The Spartans had 24 flags in that game.

For posterity, we recorded every penalty for future generations.

USF: Illegal shift.
Illinois: Substitution infraction.
USF: False start.
Illinois: Offside.
USF: Personal foul (this was the first PAT attempt).
USF: Unsportsmanlike conduct.
Illinois: Unsportsmanlike conduct (Nos. 5 and 6 offset).
Illinois: Holding.
USF: Roughing the passer (targeting to boot).
Illinois: Pass interference.
Illinois: False start (those last four were on consecutive plays).
Illinois: Offside.
USF: False start.
USF: Holding.
Illinois: False start.
USF: False start (end of first quarter).
Illinois: Clipping.
USF: Unsportsmanlike conduct.
Illinois: Pass interference.
Illinois: 12 men on the field.
USF: Face mask.
Illinois: Holding.
USF: False start.
USF: False start.
USF: Delay of game (that was actually intentional to give some more breathing room for a pooch punt).
Illinois: Pass interference (end of first half).
Illinois: False start.
Illinois: Targeting (that’s two ejections now).
USF: Holding.
Illinois: Facemask.
USF: Facemask.

Now back to the game, Quinton Flowers threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns on 15 of 25 attempts. USF topped 100 yards rushing, with USF amassing 680 yards total offense to Illinois’ 354

The Bulls (3-0) beat a Big Ten opponent for the first time on a night the university honored first responders who worked the last week to help victims of the massive storm that impacted the entire state of Florida.

Illinois (2-1) stumbled in what also was a homecoming of sorts for coach Lovie Smith, who returned to the stadium where he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two seasons before being fired and accepting the challenge of rebuilding the Illini.

217

The visiting Huskies got on the board quick with NOT one, but two pick sixes. From this and as expected, Nebraska surged back in the second half and briefly took the lead early on in the fourth quarter but NIU answered and recaptured the lead with about nine minutes left. The Husks had no answer for NIU tailback Jordan Huff. The senior entered the game with 97 yards on the season. Against Nebraska he compiled 145 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries.

Bright spot, Tanner Lee threw for just shy of 300 yards but also tossed three crucial interceptions. Mikale Wilson led the way on the ground with 90 yards. BIG win for the MAC as NIU got P-A-I-D! $820k victory…..

 

1329

Michigan’s offense has to do better as they only put up 200 yards in the first half,then went on struggle to find the end zone. Quinn Nordin was the offense with three FGs. Wolverines offense did score once thanks to a 36-yard run by Karan Higdon. It was another lackluster performance by Wilton Speight as he completed 14 of 23 passes for 169 yards and no scores. Next week, PURDUE….

065

In a word, THOROUGH!!! But at least they got a check right? Rutgers paid them $350,000. One must ask yourself, “is it worth it?”

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

 

353

The 2017 Boilermakers are a TOTALLY different team from a season ago. Yes, they lost a close one against Louisville to start the season, but Jeff Brohm actually has Purdue looking like a competent Big Ten team. That continued on Saturday when they went on the road and crushed an SEC opponent.

The Boilers continue to use a two-quarterback system and both David Blough and Elijah Sindelar made an impact this weekend. Blough led the way completing 22 of 28 passes for 187 yards and a score. He also added a rushing touchdown. Sindelar threw for 85 yards and a touchdown of his own. Sophomore Tario Fuller led all ball-carries with 90 yards and a touchdown.

Mizzou running back Demarea Crockett entered the game with close to 300 yards through just two games, but the Boilermaker defense made him a non-factor. Crockett rushed for just 19 yards on 10 carries. WOW!!! Guess who’s up next for the Boilermakers? Harbough and Michigan Wolverines…. We will be there LIVE!!!

056

Not bad for $1.2 million payday Georgia State… Whew!

1431

334

406

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Jeff Brohm continues to do big things for Purdue and the team believing… Penn State looks like a well-oiled machine, Wisconsin’s offense is rolling, and Iowa needs to step it up with conference play kicking off.

Next week’s schedule features Penn State traveling to Iowa, Michigan State taking on the Fighting Irish, Ohio State will take on UNLV, and Purdue hosting the Wolverines. We will be LIVE in West Lafayette for the 2pm CDT kickoff.

Justin Hall, NIU-recruit, goes for 332 yards, 4 TDs as H-F downs Bolingbrook to lead host H-F to a 48-20 SouthWest Suburban victory before a jammed-packed crowd for homecoming. He carried the ball 19 times for 171 yards and three TDs for H-F (4-0, 2-0). He also had six catches for 161 yards and a TD.

“I’m naturally good at running back,” Hall said. “I had to wait for my turn the last two years. Senior year, I’m going to show I can play running back at any level.”

With all of that being said, believe it or not, the visiting Raiders came to play as they jumped out to a 20-13 lead at halftime, but second half adjustments were shown, with the Vikings (4-0, 2-0) putting up 35 points in the third quarter.

In the end, Vikings coach Craig Buzea referred to Hall as the “best football player in the state.”

“There may be better running backs and there may be better defensive backs, but there isn’t a better football player,” Buzea said. “His versatility is something I’ve never seen before.”

The previous two weeks have been very compelling (Week one, Week two) and we hope Week 3 will kick off conference place with lots more glory….  here’s our recap for conference play in our coverage area:

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

Thursday, September 7

Bloom 28, Collins 0 
Bloom (2-1): Juan Green 2-yard TD run, 66-yard TD pass to Zion Alexander.

Curie 42, Morgan Park 18
Morgan Park (1-2): Benjamin Little 1-yard TD run. Alex Perkins 63-yard fumble return TD.

Friday, September 8

Rich Central 60, Kaneland 20
Junior Sean Tyler saw “open field and opportunity” as Rich Central defeated Kaneland 60-20. Tyler finished the contest with 4 touchdowns including two long-runs. He reminded everyone of his winning track and field ability, team won State in the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200, in this game.


See his postgame interview ~click here!

The visiting Knights (1-2) got on the board first on a short pass from Jack Douglas to Alex Moses at the 8:35 minute mark in the first quarter. On the kickoff, Tyler received the ball and darted down the field for 85-yards. Extra point failed, making the score 7-6.

The Knights scored again on the next possession with a short run by Jonathan Alstott taking the lead for the final time, as on the very next kickoff to the Olympians, junior Zachery Roebuck, caught the kickoff and return it to the endzone from 80 yards out. They tied the score at 14 on a successful 2-point conversion. Rich Central (2-1)  never looked back as on a few plays later, senior Derrick Maxwell Jr., jumped in front of a quick screen pass and returned it to the endzone. The score now was 20-14 and we were still in the first quarter and the Olympians offense hasn’t ran a single play. There first offensive play came early in the second quarter.

Later in the second, senior quarterback, Jyran Mitchell, put together the offenses first score on a well-managed drive that concluded with a 14-yard pass to Dionlashen Washington.

After intermission, the Olympians picked up where they left off and NIU-recruit Mitchell connected with Jason Johnson from 25 yards out then he showed his speed as he kept the ball and ran through the defense for a 67-yard score. On their next three possessions, it was Mr. Tyler who scored from 48 yards, 7 yards, and a video-game style run from 68.

The Knights did score on more time on a kickoff to Max Gagne.

Up next for Rich Central will be cross-town rival Rich South.

“The kids worked hard (this week),” coach Terrell Alexander shared after the game. “Next week we have work even harder as they (Rich South) is a varsity football team too.”

Richards 27, Shepard 21
Derek Flowers put on a show Friday night in the win against Shepard 27-21, a South Suburban Red contest. He finished the game with over 200 yards on the ground and four scores.

“Derek is one tough player,” Richards coach Tony Sheehan said. “We’re going to run with him. We’ve got to get down and dirty.”

Shepard was without head coach Dominic Passolano, who according to Porter, notified the staff he had a family emergency. That wasn’t the only loss the Astros suffered.

It was being reported via social media that the game became “very chippy” and two players from each team ejected.

Providence 28, St. Rita 21
Providence cools St. Rita off with a 28-21 victory in the Catholic Blue even though they let a 13-point lead slip away in the second half, but rallied to regain the lead for good on Caden Kalinowski’s 27-yard touchdown pass to De’Shon Gavin with 1:00 left in the game.

The Celtics collected over 300 yards on the ground including Gavin finishing with 114 yards on 18 carries and Magurany added 91 yards on 15 attempts.

“Jake with the power and De’Shon with the speed, that’s what we wanted to build our offense on,” Providence coach Mark Coglianese said. “The first two weeks (in losses to East St. Louis and Vianney, Mo.) we couldn’t quite get untracked. We were a little bit overmatched.”

Lemont 14, Hillcrest 7
Overtime was needed for Lemont to defeat Hillcrest 14-7 in a BIG South Suburban Blue contest.

The winning pass came from senior quarterback Mark Mathias to Matt Slee. It was a a floater to the right side of the end zone on the first play of OT.

“Oh, my gosh, that was the best feeling in the world,” Mathias said. “When he caught that ball, oh, it was the best thing ever.”

St. Laurence 27, Bishop McNamara 7
St. Laurence (2-1, 1-0): Tori Clinton TD runs of 2, 22 yards.

St. Patrick 30, Joliet Catholic 29
JCA (1-2, 0-1): Ke’Von Johnson, Aidan Tyrell 2 TD runs each.

Homewood-Flossmoor 48, Stagg 0

Friday, September 1

WARRIORS HOLD OFF CRUSADERS

Crete-Monee get a BIG win over Catholic League Blue Brother Rice, 33-25 behind the play of Josh Tomas. He scored on a pair of passes including a 50-yard bomb from Isaiah Rucker in the third. He finished the game with 7 catches for 143 yards.

“I know that I have to execute when my teammates are counting on me in key situations,” Tomas said. “(Quarterback Isaiah Rucker) and I put in a lot of time together, and I want to be that big-play guy for him.”

Quarterback Rucker finished 20 of 30 passing for 271 yards and four TDs including a wonderful connection with Tyler Mays for a 33-yard TD in the fourth that sealed their final score.

The Crusaders fought back as best they could as John Bean connected with Dylan Summers for a 77-yard TD and Bean ran in the 2-point conversion to cut the lead to 33-25 with 2:59 left. Bean finished the game going 7 of 12 passes for 134 yards and running eight times for 68 yards and a TD.

The Warriors (1-1), though, recovered the ensuing onside kick and ran out the clock.

 

OLYMPIANS FALL SHORT

St. Rita continued their winning ways knocking off visiting Rich Central 44-25. Senior quarterback Jake Zylman led the way with his play calling and arm, as he threw a pair of touchdown passes and rushed for another. On the ground, Dave Gleaves added two TDs, including one rushing and one receiving for the Mustangs (2-0).

The Olympians (1-1) grabbed some momentum at the end of the first half when Sean Tyler returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. Tyler finished with 63 yards on 12 carries.

But that momentum ended as the Mustangs ran off 10 straight points including Chris Childers who scored on a short run and a successful field goal. Childers ended up with 79 yards on 18 carries.

Northern Illinois-recruit, Jyran Mitchell, scored twice on the ground. He finished the game with 78 yards on the ground and completed 15 of 26 passes for 137 yards.

BIG Ten Week 1 Kickoff…

It’s that time… BIG TEN Football time!!!!  Who will snag an opening day victory?

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

 

 Big game going on in Arlington, Texas as Michigan takes on Florida (Arlington, Texas). Coming into this game Wolverines have won all three match-ups, including a 41-7 victory in the last encounter in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl after the 2015 season—Harbaugh’s first at Michigan.

 Then there’s Akron vs. Penn State… aka Best head coach match-up

 A BIG TEN early contest features a clash of coordinators featuring Indiana vs Ohio State.

 Purdue host Louisville at Lucas Oil Stadium. In this game, be sure to keep an eye out for David Blough, who injured his shoulder early in camp but is said to be okay, and early Heisman favorite, Lamar Jackson.

 

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Other notable contest….
Buffalo at Minnesota (Thursday)
Washington at Rutgers (Friday)
Utah State at Wisconsin (Friday)
Ball State at Illinois*
Wyoming at Iowa
Maryland at Texas
Nevada at Northwestern
Bowling Green at Michigan State
Arkansas State at Nebraska
Akron at Penn State

* we will be LIVE at this game.

WEEK 1 NOTES PROVIDED BY THE BIG TEN
 Few schools have a more daunting opener than Maryland, which plays at Texas. Yes, the Longhorns have struggled in recent years, going 16-21 the last three seasons and missing the postseason each of the last two years. But the Longhorns have a new coach in former Ohio State OC Tom Herman, who went 22-4 the last two years at Houston. And UT always has talent … lots of talent. The Terps are 0-3 all-time vs. Texas, last playing in 1978 in the Sun Bowl. Maryland last was in Austin in 1959. Interesting fact: The Terrapins have been shutout in each of their three meetings vs. UT, losing by a combined 102-0.

 Like Maryland, Rutgers also faces a big task in Week 1 with Washington coming to Piscataway for a Friday night affair. The Scarlet Knights got an up-close look at the Huskies last year, losing 48-13 in Seattle as U-Dub went on to earn a playoff bid. Chris Petersen will have another good team in 2017 led by Heisman contending QB Jake Browning.

Purdue will travel south on I-65 while Louisville will travel north on I-65 and they will meet in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Good storylines here. It’s the debut of new Boiler coach and Louisville native son Jeff Brohm, who was a former star U of L signal-caller who also once was an assistant to Cardinal coach Bobby Petrino.

 Speaking of debuts, P.J. Fleck will make his at Minnesota vs. Buffalo on Thursday. The hype and mojo around Fleck’s start has been building for months. Get out your oar and row along as the Gophers take on Buffalo. The Bulls are coached by Lance Leipold, who won six Division III national titles at Wisconsin-Whitewater before landing the Buffalo job in 2015.

The opening week also includes a rare Big Ten contest, as Ohio State visits Indiana on Thursday night. The Buckeyes have dominated this series. Indiana went 2-1-1 vs. the Buckeyes from 1987-90, including a victory in Columbus in 1987. Since then, the Hoosiers have lost 22 in a row to the Buckeyes. This is a big bite for new IU coach Tom Allen in his first game as head coach in Bloomington. This will mark the first time in 41 years that Ohio State will open against a Big Ten foe (1976 vs. Michigan State) and it will be the first time in 42 years the Buckeyes will open on the road vs. a Big Ten opponent (1975 vs. Michigan State).

2017 BIG Ten Forecast

Posted on August 28, 2017. Filed under: Football, NCAA Sports, Sporting News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

What’s in store for the BIG TEN?

August 2017

A year ago at this time, 32 out of 39 Big Ten Conference media members in a Cleveland.com poll predicted that Iowa would win the league’s West Division. Hhhhm…. wonder how they feel about that now?

Then in the East Division, 31 of 39 picked Ohio State to rule the roost. Whoops!

Well, here comes our predictions. So if we misfire with our world-famous pick of Ohio State over Minnesota in the championship, don’t laugh (until December 3).

In all seriousness, Wisconsin is the odds-on favorite to beat out the likes of Iowa, Nebraska, Northwestern and Minnesota. Now in the East, I’m hesitating to go against conventional wisdom and beloved Buckeyes. There’s some left over for Penn State, last year’s surprising league champion that brings just about everyone back. In the end, when all of the smoke clears, I’m going with the BIG Blue… as they will snap a five-game losing streak in the Ohio State series, winning an East tiebreaker for a berth in the Big Ten title game in Indianapolis.

By the end of the season, the inexperienced Wolverines should be peaking. And they’ll win a rematch of their Nov. 18 game against Wisconsin at Lucas Oil Stadium and represent the Big Ten in the College Football Playoff.

EAST DIVISION
1. Michigan
2. Ohio State
3. Penn State
4. Indiana
5. Michigan State
6. Maryland
7. Rutgers

WEST DIVISION
1. Wisconsin
2. Northwestern
3. Iowa
4. Minnesota
5. Nebraska
6. Purdue
7. Illinois

Should be a fun, entertaining season…. we are only a few hours away from kickoff BIG TEN style… Who do you have winning it all?

IHSA Week 1 Recap…

August 26, 2017

What a solid weekend of high school football and we were on the sidelines for many excellent games….

 

Olympians have a strong showing…

OLYMPIA FIELDS: After a slow start, the Rich Central got things going and never let up as they defeated Thornwood 38-0.

First quarter of the game was full of jitters as both teams turnover the ball and couldn’t get started. The Olympians scored on a 22 yard run by junior tailback Michael Joshua. Joshua would score again late in the fourth quarter.

On the night, it was senior Jyran Mitchell, Northern Illinois-recruit, who guided the ship for the Olympians. Mr. Mitchell scored on three separate occasions: 58 yard run; 42 yard pass to Dionlashon Washington; and a 61 yard run late in the third quarter.

Rich Central dominated not only the scoreboard but all of the positive statistics in the contest including 483 total offense to 166.

Sean Tyler also reached the endzone on a 5 yard run in the third quarter.

A bright spot for Thornwood was the play of Peerless Jackson, 13 for 39; and Christian Simmon 6 for 8 for 73

To view the boxscore and additional videos, click here.

Up next for Rich Central will be a repeat battle against St. Rita next Friday night in Chicago.

2017 Battle of Pulaski goes to….

CHICAGO: In this years edition of the Battle of Pulaski, Marist came out on top 23-14 behind the strong defense of the RedHawks and defensive lineman Gavin McCabe. He finished with ten tackles, four for a loss.

Each of those big plays were especially key since the RedHawks were suffering through a strange mass-cramping incident.

In the third quarter there were at least eight players getting cramps worked out on the Marist sideline.

“It was crazy,” McCabe said. “I drank about seven coconut waters, that’s what the tell us to do. And I started cramping up at the end. At one point I think we had three of our starting wide receivers out. That’s something we are going to have to check out and make sure it doesn’t happen next week.”

Marist sealed the win by tackling Brother Rice quarterback Evan Sullivan for a safety with 4:50 left in the game. Linebacker Colin Bohanek, a sophomore, made the tackle. McCabe and Danny Meehan helped provide the pressure.

Offensively, Marist junior Billy Skalitzky sprinted down the field for 66 yards score which game them the lead. On the very next possession the Crusaders fumbled the snap punting and Kendric Nowling fell on the ball for the touchdown, 14-0 in the first quarter.

The Marist backfield was surely a bright spot as Delonte Harrell had 16 carries for 53 yards, and Jadon Thompson caught four passes for 64 yards. Quarterback Mike Markett finished 9 for 18 passing for 91 yards.

“[This win] is so much bigger than just our team,” McCabe said. It’s for every Marist RedHawk that has played Brother Rice. It’s really special.”

Griffins topped the Warriors

FRANKFORT: Lincoln-Way East traveled well and was prepared on Friday night as the knocked off the hometeam Warriors, 27-7.

Brendan Morrissey put on a offensive show, passing for two touchdowns and rushing for two more in the victory.

“I woke up a few times during the night,” Morrissey said. “I was nervous. After the first play, I settled in.”

East rushed for 258 yards. Sophomore A.J. Henning showed flashes of being a dominant running back, picking up 75 yards on six carries. Ryan Scianna added 33 yards on the ground.

On the other side of the ball, the Warriors quarterback Isaiah Rucker did the best he could. He finished the game going 20 of 43 passes for 275 yards, including a 48-yard TD pass to Joshua Tomas.

But East’s defensive line, led by Northwestern recruit Devin O’Rourke, Dylan Shelton, Ben Ravetto and Jaden Hacha, applied consistent pressure including sacks by O’Rourke and Hacha.

St. Rita wins at Soldier Field

CHICAGO: Chris Childers made his debut as St. Rita’s No. 1 running back an impressive one Friday in the Mustangs’ 49-21 victory over St. Patrick at Soldier Field.

The 6-foot, 200-pound senior rushed 17 times for 89 yards and three touchdowns. The scores were from 1, 2 and 2 yards out.
“I worked really hard in the offseason,” Childers said. “But it was all about during the summer going out to the field with the team and getting extra work in. We all really prepared for this.

“I felt great. It’s always good to get back out there. Me and the team were really excited for this. I knew we were going to perform very well.”

Homewood-Flossmoor 63, Michigan City (Ind.) 21
H-F (1-0): Justin Hall 4 18 carries, 214 yards, 4 TDs.

Joliet Catholic 34, Geneva 27
JCA (1-0): Ke’Von Johnson 3 TDs, including 64-yard run.

Lincoln-Way Central 41, Lake Central (Ind.) 0
L-Way Central (1-0): Matt Pollack 114 yards rushing, 3 TDs.
