Re: Two-time state QB transferring to Chatham Glenwood

.The Flyers as is usually the case are loaded this season. One of the better teams in the the entire state regardless of class size. With an enrollment of 1262.00 and no longer able to petition up they are on the bubble between class 5A and 6A. The preseason Associated Press top ten poll among the e...

Re: Coaching News:

The Saints have a long rich tradition of football success. Years ago I worked around a BCC fan that commuted to ...

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.I can understand that. Especially if they end up in Class 6A. The SWC weren't stupid how they cased this decision. All of the schools in the conference will not be able to petition up in the sports they offer.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.You misunderstand. I'm not talking 2021. ESL for the next TWO years will have to follow their conference new directive. So the Flyers for 2019 and 2020 will be a 5A playoff team or more likely 6A.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes
