High School Football – Week 1

August 26, 2016

What a fantastic weekend for high school football! Perfect weather kicked things off Friday night across the Chicagoland area. A number of teams picked things off right where they left them, while others are trying to find their new identity. Let’s get things started……

RichCentral

Olympians put on an Olympic performance in the opener

Behind the offensive play of junior quarterback, Jyran Mitchell, Rich Central knock off Stagg 39-6. Yes, I did say Mitchell… this is the third son to come through the program. Shawn Jr. is now playing at Eastern Illinois  and Jeremiah is at Austin Peay. And next month, they play against each other for the first time since, whew… for-e-v-e-r!

But back to the game at hand, Mitchell had two TD runs and also threw a 19-yard scoring pass to Glen Abram to guide Rich Central (1-0) in the opener. The Olympians scored on their first four possessions and never looked back. On the other side of the ball, the defense was nasty… stingy… and it seemed as if every player swarmed to the ball on each and every play. This contest definitely sent a strong message to their future opponents that they are a force to be reckon with.

2016-RC-Stagg Stagg (0-1) got on the board late with a quick scamper by Mike Jennings.

The Olympians have a tough contest next week as they travel crosstown to St. Rita next Friday night. Should be a good one and we will be there!

Vikings picked up where they left off….

H-F

Homewood-Flossmoor’s Bryant Wright didn’t leave any questions unanswered as to his ability to take over the reins at quarterback for the Vikings as they dominated the game against Downers Grove South 56-6. He finished the contest going 8-for-13 for 206 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran four times for 57 yards and a TD.

Running back Tyler Nutall (8 carries, 105 yards) punctuated the Vikings’ second drive with a 23-yard TD.

Herbert Hughes, a transfer from Stagg, scored back-to-back TDs in the third quarter on runs of 55 and 8 yards.

To top it off, backup quarterback Kellyn Gerenstein also scored on a 94-yard run.

Crete knocks off TF South

CreteMonee

Crete-Monee running back Datuan Carter wanted to win this game for his coach John Konecki, who’s father, died Tuesday and the team attended his funeral earlier Friday.

“We had to win this one for coach,” Carter said. “He had a bad week. We saw that he was down and we had to pick him back up. It meant a lot to us to get this win.”

T.F. South took an early 7-0 lead in the second quarter on a 27-yard TD pass from Reis Padjen (16-of-21, 160 yards passing) to Bron Hill (7 catches, 107 yards).

But Carter, a junior, helped make sure it would happen, running for two touchdowns and catching another Friday as the host Warriors scored 35 unanswered points in the second half for a 42-7 win over T.F. South.

“It’s a very emotional time, as it is for any man with his father,” Konecki said. “My family knew I was going to come here, though. They wouldn’t expect anything less. It meant the world to me to look out at the funeral and see my team there. Your players become family members, and they were there for me.”

Lemont squeaks’ passed Richards

Senior Steve Fleming made some crucial contributions Friday against Richards including a key 50 plus yard punt in the fourth quarter that pinned the Bulldogs deep in their own end which led to an Indians’ score for the victory, 13-7.

“I was thinking I needed to pin them deep,” Fleming said. “I was hoping that would give our defense a chance to get a big stop and lead to our offense getting good field position.”

2012 IL Best HS Football Team

Posted on August 22, 2012. Filed under: Football, Sporting News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Who’s our 2012 Illinois High School Number 1 football team?

August 20, 2012

The age old question is asked about Illinois High School Football and answered by our team….

This time of the year many people are curious about which high school football team is the best in Illinois. While we have seen many of the teams in our coverage area, I have not seen some of the other statewide contenders. However, like anyone, we can certainly offer an opinion on the teams we have seen, read about and are familiar with so far this year.

NOTE: This is based on our coverage area.

10. Thornton
Impact Player: Jalen Banks is actually one of the most experienced players in the state, having played varsity football since he arrived at Thornton as a freshman in 2009.
Biggest Issue for 2012: Battled test – but can they play together against steep competition?

9. Lemont
Impact Player: OT Ethan Pocic
Biggest Issue for 2012? Can the inexperienced offensive skills develop fast enough.

8. Crete
Impact Player: WR LaQuon Treadwell
Biggest Issue for 2012? Outside of the Southland, can they standup in the Class 6A playoffs?

7. Marist
Impact Player: TE Nic Weishar
Biggest Issue for 2012: Can anyone standup on defense?

6. Lincoln-Way East
Impact Player: QB Tommy Fuessel
Biggest Issue for 2012? Moving into 2012 season strong – leaving the 2011 season in the past.

5. St Rita
Impact Player (s): Offensive line
Biggest Issue for 2012?
Steady play at QB1.
