I used to enjoy covering the state high school football championships at Illinois State's Hancock Stadium in Normal and at Illinois' Memorial Stadium in Champaign.
It's down to the field of 64 in the IHSA football playoffs, but this week's High School Lites will have more of a "Sweet 16" feel.
Montini coach Chris Andriano has made a deal with the Lombard school's administration. At 60, he is completing his 33rd season. Two more years and he will call it a career.
Marian Central's Chris Streveler probably isn't a better singer than he is a quarterback. That's not why Minnesota offered him a scholarship. That's not why he accepted it.
1 Maine South (11-0)
Last Week (Ranked 1): Defeated Conant 27-13
Next Game: 8A Playoffs vs. Glenbard North
