Was I the only one who watched this?


I come from an avid (AVID) family of football fanatics. My father coaches for junior high football even though my little brother is long since in high school and would have had Brianne and I play as young girls was the choice up to him (“Screw ballet, football puts hair on your chest”). I also fractured a rib with my current cold (bronchitis? pneumonia? I don’t really care any more) and couldn’t move off the couch all day Saturday without feeling like I was being repeatedly stabbed in the chest. So I watched the IHSA Football Championships on channel 20. Normally I would have at least changed the channel to the Game Show Network, but my homeskillet Libertyville High School had made it all the way and had a good chance of winning. They lost barely last year in a game that almost gave my dad and brother simultaneous anuerisms.

Luckily, LHS managed to pull it off this year, marking their first state victory ever in the history of time. For those not in the know, there are actually 8 state champions. Schools are divided into divisions depending upon school size. Here are the rest of the results.

1A: Alexis United 21, Stockton 14
2A: Sterling Newman 21, Carthage 7
3A: Driscoll 37, Manlius Bureau Valley 14
4A: Montini 44, Coal City 7
5A: Joliet Catholic 17, Morris 0
6A: Providence 40, Bloomington 0 (this game was rad, Bloomington got SPANKED)
7A: Libertyville 13, Cary-Grove 3
8A: Downers North 33, Maine South 13
