Ihsa State Football Playoffs
DEKALB | Mount Carmel quarterback Marko Boricich knew the call was coming.
DEKALB | There is no need to state the goal at Mount Carmel at the start of a football season.
DEKALB | The statistics were staggering.
DEKALB | Janice and Herb Klingelschmitt had three sons graduate from Mount Carmel, but the Lansing couple didn't stop supporting the Caravan.
DOWNERS GROVE | The rain pelted down and the wind prevented a precision passing game.
FLOSSMOOR | Homewood-Flossmoor coach Craig Buzea wasn't about to play the blame game after the Vikings' tough, season-ending loss to Naperville Central.
CHICAGO | Matt Domer had to take a breath -- something he'd earned after rushing for 273 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries -- before considering the question.
FLOSSMOOR | Homewood-Flossmoor defensive back Will Daniels recalls the unpleasant experience of watching from the sidelines last year.
You look at Mount Carmel's offense averaging 7.1 yards-per-play and 361.4 per game and think the numbers are quite impressive.
BOLINGBROOK | The reality of the playoffs struck in the second quarter Saturday night, and it hit Bloom Township hard.
CRETE | Their hopes of a repeat Class 6A title were stopped by Providence in the wet grass and mud Saturday afternoon.
CHICAGO | It took Times No. 1 Mt. Carmel two minutes and 39 seconds to put Friday night’s class 7A opening round playoff game against Benet Academy out of reach.
FRANKFORT | When it was over, Tom Padjen stood in a cold drizzle, weary players kneeling before him, and delivered the sort of speech he's delivered 36 times before.
FLOSSMOOR | Little changed Friday night from the first time Homewood-Flossmoor played, and played with, Sandburg this season.
Crete-Monee has not lacked for senior leadership and one reason is safety Jonathan Draper.
LANSING | Ask Fred Taylor's coaches about him and they'll tell you the same thing.
Christian Searles doesn't mind never leaving the field.
CHAMPAIGN | Both Crete-Monee and Mount Carmel brought home state titles on Saturday.
