Illinois Games of the Week - Week One

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 8/24/16 7:00 PM


There's nothing quite like Week One.

A seemingly neverending offseason finally comes to an end as the entire town buzzes with an excitement bordering on hysteria. Every team is undefeated, and every fan dreams of a playoff birth, a region title, a state championship...

It's time to prove your supporters right and your critics wrong. Time to turn summer preparation into fall results.

Undefeated starts with 1-0.
