The New Lenox Patriot | August 24, 2017 | 3

Community rallies around local with

rare cancer, benefit set for Aug. 26

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

Bill Koch has always been

there to help others.

Whether it’s donating his

time at the local VFW or

doing his best to help out a

friend or family member,

people who know the New

Lenox resident well say that

Koch goes out of his way for

others.

But now it is Koch who

needs a helping hand after

being diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma,

a rare, softtissue

cancer. Most commonly

found in children,

only a handful of medical

facilities in the country have

the ability to treat this disease

for adults. In Koch’s

case, he has had to travel to

the University of Texas MD

Anderson Cancer Center in

Houston for treatment — including

two surgeries and,

most recently, six weeks of

radiation therapy back in

June.

Koch, who was self-employed

before the diagnosis,

was on private health care

insurance — meaning medical

costs quickly have piled

up.

To help him as he’s helped

others, friends and family of

the Kochs have planned a

fundraiser and set up a donation

website. The event

is scheduled from 2-10 p.m.

Saturday, Aug. 26, at Francis

Field Youth Foundation,

801 E. Francis Road in New

Lenox.

It is free admission, but

donations will be accepted to

help fund Bill Koch’s medical

costs.

Connie Cunningham, a

Sandburg graduate and a

friend of the Koch family,

is leading the charge for the

benefit.

When describing the

Kochs, she said they are the

type of people who do nice

things around the community,

but they never want or

seek out recognition.

One of the areas in which

the Kochs spent a lot of time

volunteering was at the New

Lenox Veterans of Foreign

Wars Post 9545. It was a

cause that was dear to them,

as both Bill and his wife,

Nancy, had family members

who served in the military.

“Bill was even president

of the men’s auxiliary at the

post for a few years,” she

said.

Cunningham also said Bill

is the type of person who is

always “behind the camera,

making sure fond memories

are made.”

“He is humble, kind,

funny, generous and incredibly

dedicated to his family

and friends,” she said. “Bill

is the man who does things

as soon as he sees they need

to be done. He doesn’t wait

around for someone to ask.

His wife, Nancy, is the same

way. This is one of the traits

that drew my husband and

me to them when we met.”

She said Koch’s disease is

uncommon in adults.

Bill Koch (left) and his wife, Nancy, pose for a picture on a

motorcycle. Photos submitted by Connie Cunningham

“There are only approximately

20 documented,

adult cases of this cancer in

the United States,” Cunningham

said. “It is a childhood

disease that rarely appears

in adults. The treatment is

harsh, long and very draining.

“And the emotional upheaval

of having to be separated

from one’s family

during such a trying time

is unfathomable to me. The

New Lenox School D122 Board of education

Officials approve tentative fiscal year budget

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

The New Lenox School

District 122 Board of Education

reviewed and took

action Aug. 16 to approve

its fiscal year 2018 tentative

budget.

The budget will be on

public display for 30 days at

the district office for review.

For fiscal year 2018, the

district presented a $780,223

operating surplus, and the

remaining funds are to pay

for building renovations during

the next few summers.

The district ended with a

$2.8 million dollar surplus

last year, and the money left

over is to pay for building

renovations during the next

few summers, as well.

D122 Business Manager

Bob Groos said he is hopeful

the district will get closer

to the original approximate

$1.8 million surplus they

forecasted in June and January.

“Pretty much everything,

Round it up

A brief recap of action and discussion at the Aug. 16 meeting of the New Lenox School District

122 board:

• The board approved the disposal of a

2007 Ford utility van due to the asset no

longer being in good working condition. A

newer vehicle will be purchased.

• Officials agreed to award a one-year

to Quest Food Management to support

its box lunch program. While the district

decided to not award the contract to

Revolution Foods for not securing the

needed other local bids, officials went

on to use the Illinois State Board of

Education Nutrition and Wellness small

purchase process to secure another

offer for the 2017-2018 academic year.

if you compare the five-year

forecast to our tentative budget,

everything is very similar,

very consistent,” Groos

said. “The only reason it’s

about a million dollars less

in terms of our surplus is, as

of right now, I’ve included

only three categorical payments

for the year.”

Last year, for example, the

district received two of its

state payments, and the third

quarter installment came on

Aug. 10.

“We received that one

[payment,] so we know we

have that one for this year,

and then we’ll also most

likely receive last year’s

[fourth quarter] payment this

year,” Groos said. “What

To participate in the program, students

will pay $3.25 per meal.

• Board members were presented the

unaudited results from fiscal year 2017.

As of July, the district reportedly spent

roughly $1 million less than budgeted

and collected approximately $1 million

less than expected, in part, because

State of Illinois payments were not

received. The final budget was 99.96

percent accurate, with forecasted

numbers amounting to $36,977,000

and actual projections totaling to

$36,944,000.

I’ve budgeted for here is

to see one payment for this

current school year, so it’s

debatable whether or not to

include a second payment

in the budget for this next

school year.”

Groos said nobody is

projecting to bring in more

than two categorical payments

during this current

school year.

“I think only collecting

one payment is kind of — I

don’t know I want to say pessimistic

say it’s 50/50, and

the only way to know, for

sure, is to see what happens

over the next few weeks in

terms of the school funding

laws that they come up with

[in Springfield.]”

To date, the State of Illinois

is $14 billion behind in

payment to school districts

and other units of government.

A budget hearing will be

held in September, at which

point the board is to discuss

the final budget. At that

point, officials will take action

on it.

“It’s really a matter of

we’ll make that decision

for the final legal budget of

whether or not to keep that

second payment in there, or

just keep only one payment

for the school year in there,”

Groos said.

Superintendent Peggy

Manville said the district

should “stay inspired” that

they’ll receive two categorical

payments this year.

The district is projecting

to end the fiscal year with

a $28 million surplus with

only one categorical accounted

for. That represents

a 55 percent operating fund

balance, which Groos said,

is excellent.

“That’s about six-and-half

months worth of reserves,

and like we say each year,

these sufficient fund balances

and operating surpluses

allow New Lenox School

District [122] to continue to

offer high-quality programs,

despite all the potential future

funding reductions…

and also continue to improve

our district infrastructure

without the need to issue

any new debt at this time,”

he said.

In a 6-0 decision, officials

approved the fiscal year

2018 tentative budget as presented

to the board. Board

Member Michele Degroot

Rosenfeld was absent.

Koch

From Page 3

ability of his wife to continue

to hold down the fort at

home and still continue her

work with the VFW Post is

incredible.

“They are just very unique

people in this world. To see

what they display at this

time of violence, hatred and

judgment in so many places

around us should help renew

our faith in humanity.”

Cunningham said that

when the idea of having a

benefit for the Kochs came

up, “there was a lot of

buzz.”

“There is never hesitation

from anyone,” she said.

“Some of the people contributing

to this event don’t

even know Bill and Nancy;

they just know they are a local

couple in need of some

help.”

She said the benefit and

the YouCaring website was

a way for the Kochs’ family

and friends to show Bill and

Nancy how much they care

and want to help.

As for the event, Cunningham

said there will be

great food and fun for those

who attend. There also will

be bands playing live music,

as well as a disc jockey in

between. Some of the raffle

items include a: $1,000 cash

prize; $500 worth of scratchoff

tickets; and autographed

items from Mick Jagger,

Bon Jovi, Bruno Mars,

Fleetwood Mac, Toby Keith,

Joe Walsh, Brian Urlacher,

Kyle Hendricks and more

music and sports stars.

“It’s going to be a fun

day,” Cunningham said.

“We’re coming together in

the spirit of friendship and

support. You don’t have to

know [the Kochs]. They

could be strangers, and you

can still come and be welcomed.

No matter where you

walk in that facility that day,

there’s going to be a feeling

of camaraderie and of positive

attitude.”

New Lenox Village Board

Officials reject plan for controversial Lincoln Station apartments

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

Village officials decided to

not approve an extension of a

special use for development

of the controversial Lincoln

Station apartments at their

Aug. 14 regular meeting.

New Lenox Development

Corporation representatives

had sought a third extension

for its development plan for

the 208-unit complex near

the Village’s Metra Station,

but were shelved by trustees.

Officials had approved

preliminary plans for the

project in August 2015, at

which point the board’s decision

was valid for one year.

Meeting minutes show the

matter drew concern from

a number of residents at a

July 2015 special meeting.

A change to the development

plan is what resulted thereby

reducing the number of units

from 312 to 208.

New Lenox Development

Corporation was due to approach

the Village in July

2015 to seek another approval

for the project, however it

received a six-month extension

last August because it

was working through issues

with Army Corps of Engineers.

At that point, it was the

petitioners’ intent to develop

the property and not sell it.

In February, officials wanted

the New Lenox Development

Corporation to report

back with their findings.

Minutes from that particular

meeting show that Mayor

Tim Baldermann questioned

if the petitioner is seeking to

advance the project or if it is

for marketing purposes.

New Lenox Development

Corporation representative

Richard Gammonley refuted

the idea at the time and cited

there were some changes in

partnership of the development.

At that point, another

six-month extension was

granted.

Mayor Tim Baldermann

wanted the petitioners to approach

the board again at

their Aug. 14 meeting and requested

that they speak.

“The reason I say that is

last time when you were

here, I specifically asked

on-the-record because we

had heard that this was being

marketed,” he said. “I

was told, ‘No, that is wasn’t

going to be sold. The issue

was solely the issue with the

Army Corps [of Engineers,]’

and now there’s a different

reason for looking for the extension.”

Gammonley said they informed

the Village of their

intent to sell or partner with

another firm after a February

meeting for “transparency”

and added they are just days

from choosing a partnership

with one of two groups or

selling the property to develop

it.

To date, Village staff was

provided with two letters of

intent to help the petitioners

in advancing the project.

Gammonley said they believe

the development is the

right fit for the Village of

New Lenox.

Trustee David Smith said

he will not support the extension

of a special use, though

the Village thought highly of

the project.

“We got a lot of heat on

it because it,” he said. “It’s

gone a lot longer than it

should have. Because while

you sit here and say, ‘It’s

great project, and it’s worked

in Elmhurst; it works here;

it worked here; it worked

there.’ I’ve watched them be

built in Elmhurst, and I’ve

watched be built in Glenview,

and I’ve watched them

be built all over the suburbs

of Chicago. The one place I

haven’t watched it be built:

New Lenox.”

Baldermann referenced

both offers the Village had

received and said one of them

was not executed at all and

the other was expired.

“Neither one of those—in

my opinion—were valid,” he

said.

Gammonley said they are

in middle of negotiations regarding

two offers and added

they don’t like how long it is

taking to bring the project on

line.

“They were executed but

by the purchasers,” he said.

“[For the] seller, it has [been]

unexecuted. One of those two

offers [will be accepted] in

the next five business days.”

After a motion failed to be

seconded by the trustees, the

vote died on the floor.

Trustee Annette Bowden

said this was “disheartening.”

Baldermann said the

board’s decision does not

mean the project is dead.

With an extension denied,

New Lenox Development

Corp, if they choose to do so,

will need to approach the Village,

with another request for

preliminary approval.

Plans for Silver Cross

Hospital behavioral health

campus OK’d

Village officials advanced

Silver Cross Hospital’s plans

to build a behavioral health

campus and two related

items.

Silver Cross Hospital is

partnering with US Health-

Vest to build a 100-bed,

68,000-square-foot facility

on the property located at the

southwest corner of Silver

Cross Boulevard and Pawlak

Parkway. Construction is

in the works already for the

hospital’s new ambulatory

surgical center.

Plans submitted by Silver

Cross Hospital will conform

to the Village’s comprehensive

plan and zoning ordinances.

Board action also approves

a surety in the amount of

$404,932.50 to ensure completion

of related public improvements

by August 2019

and a site plan review.

New brewery could be on

tap for New Lenox

New Lenox officials took

a preliminary look at a Village

rule creating a Class D4

liquor license for a prospective

new business.

Gary Meyer, of New

Lenox, intends to open up

a new craft beer establishment

dubbed Hickory Creek

Brewing Company at 1005

W. Laraway Rd., Unit 260.

Meyer said he has competed

in a number of contests

for brewers and added

he likes to make everything.

“Our signature beer is an

Lincoln-Way D210 Board of Education

Lacrosse receives board approval as IHSA sport for 2017-2018 school year

Meredith Dobes

Freelance Reporter

The boys and girls lacrosse

teams at Lincoln-

Way Community High

School District 210 will be

able to continue to compete

this school year, following

a vote by the School Board

Thursday, Aug. 17, to approve

lacrosse as an Illinois

High School Association

sport.

The approval was unanimous,

with Board Member

Christine Glatz absent.

Until this year, lacrosse

has been deemed an “emerging

sport” by IHSA, meaning

that it was recognized as

a club at schools that participated

in the sport. Because

of its growth, IHSA officially

sanctioned the sport

this year, requiring schools

to also officially adopt the

sport and staff it as a regular

sport.

Superintendent R. Scott

Tingley said the timing of

the IHSA’s decision is difficult

for D210 financially,

but the athletes’ families

were willing to take on most

of the costs the first year in

order to continue to have

the sport at the district.

He said transportation

costs for lacrosse were approximately

$8,000 last

year, and that amount may

rise between $1,000-$3,000

this year, depending on state

series travel. The teams

would be responsible for

paying for coaches, uniforms

and equipment. The

cost per player would be

between $266-$400, and the

club would work with players

unable to pay the fee,

Tingley said.

“We’ve not budgeted for

these sports, and the [athletic

directors] don’t have them in

their budgets at this time,”

Tingley said.

Round it up

A brief recap of action and discussion at the Aug. 17 meeting

of Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 board:

• The School Board unanimously approved its portion

of the Lincoln-Way Area Special Education District 843

budget, in the amount of approximately $3.8 million.

• Board members discussed a requested four-year

property tax abatement for Surface Shield, an Orland

Park business considering relocating to Tinley Park,

within the district’s boundaries. Board members

requested more information, including whether the

business would be interested in supplying internships

to Lincoln-Way students.

For the future, Tingley

said the district will need to

analyze all costs associated

with sports and determine

how the district can move

forward.

The boys lacrosse team is

anticipated to have between

80-100 athletes, and the girls

team is expected to have between

45-50 athletes. The

teams include students from

all three schools.

Financial planning for FY

2018

The School Board unanimously

approved scheduling

a public hearing Sept. 21 for

the fiscal year 2018 tentative

budget.

Assistant Superintendent

of Business Brad Cauffman

said the budget will be available

for review by the public

on BoardDocs beginning

Monday, Aug. 21, and there

will be an in-depth presentation

on the budget at the

Thursday, Aug. 31 meeting.

Cauffman also presented

the tax levy determination

for the district for 2017,

showing how much money

the district is estimated to

need from taxation. The total

estimated 2017 levy is approximately

$81.6 million,

or a 2.2 percent increase for

existing taxpayers.

The School Board unanimously

approved the determination,

and Cauffman

said the levy itself will be up

for approval at the Sept. 21

meeting.

Cauffman said the district

needed to approve its

levy early — most school

districts approve levies in

December — to prepare for

requesting tax anticipation

warrants.

He added that the levy

determination is balanced

against the proposed budget.

Later in the meeting, the

School Board also reviewed

an action plan for Policy

4:20 regarding fund balance,

with the goal that the district

increase operating funds by

3 percent annually.

Cauffman said if the district

is able to do this each

year, it may be able to eliminate

the need for TAWs by

fiscal year 2028.

“This shows we’re in a

pretty significant hole that

is going to take a number

of years to get back out of

it,” Board Member Christopher

Lucchetti said. “Three

percent seems reasonable.

It doesn’t jeopardize current

students and what we’re

spending. We have to get

off [TAWs]. This is a good

plan.”

Will County Public Safety Complex appears ahead of schedule

Tuminello: New

building is expected

to open in December

Staff Report

Members of the Will

County Board toured the

new Public Safety Complex

today as the building enters

its final phases of construction.

Construction is slated

for completion in December,

and some offices will move

into the building as soon as

Sept. 1, 2017.

“It’s exciting to see the

building take shape after so

many months of planning

and deliberation,” said Ray

Tuminello (R-New Lenox),

chairman of the Capital

Improvements Committee.

“Everyone has been working

hard and is eager to see the

Complex open in December.”

Members of the Capital

Improvements Committee,

as well as other board

members, attended the tour.

Board members were able to

walk around the main public

lobby, offices, server storage,

and the new main dispatch

room on the first level.

On the second level, board

members had the opportunity

to see progress on the

sheriff’s office and the new

training room.

“The new Public Safety

Complex will house some of

the County’s most important

safety facilities, such as the

Sheriff’s office and the 911

Dispatch Center,” said Lauren

Staley-Ferry (D-Joliet).

“Consolidating everything

in one centralized location

will help keep operations efficient

and the residents of

Will County safe.”

Construction on the Public

Safety Complex began in

October 2016, and was initially

estimated to be completed

by March 2018 at a

cost of $29.5 million. The

building should be complete

three months early, in December

2017, thanks to an

accelerated contract, great

weather, and local labor.

“I’ve been very impressed

with the security and technology,”

said Minority Leader

Herb Brooks (D-Joliet). “We

have really increased the

Park district hosts grand re-opening for Firefighters Park

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

Civic leaders, residents

and community members

commemorated the grand

re-opening of Firefighters

Park Aug. 14 during Party

in the Park.

The event was made possible

thanks, in part, to the

Lincolnway Special Recreation

Association.

“What we do is we go out

to the park and we throw

a park party,” said Karyn

Reczek, marketing outreach

and fundraising coordinator

for LWSRA. “We bring

a bounce house; we bring

popcorn; we bring lemonade;

we have a DJ; we’ll

play some games; we’ll do

a hula-hoop contest; [we’ll]

award some prizes. For us,

it’s all about awareness. We

just want to tell the communities

that we’re in who

Lincolnway Special Recreation

is, so that they can tell

the people that they know

with special needs who we

are and have them come if

they’re interested our programs.”

The New Lenox Community

Park District is one of

six member districts that belong

to the Lincolnway Special

Recreation Association.

Reczek said LWSRA uses

Party in the Park to help

communicate to residents

the role they play in supporting

individuals with

special needs through special

recreation programming,

as well as vying for

park enhancements.

“[Firefighters Park] is

handicap accessible, which

makes this a perfect location

for our Party in the

Park,” she said.

Firefighters Park, formerly

known as Greenbriar

Park, served as one of the

Village’s 12 original parks

for people to enjoy. The

New Lenox park received

improvements last year to

address concerns for flooding

and safety, and they

were completed in June

2016.

“There was a composite

structure that had climbers

and slides and overhead and

different features, and it was

23 years old,” said George

Travnicek, director of

parks-maintenance for New

Lenox Community Park

District. “If you can get 15

years out of a playground,

normally they say that’s

good. So, that was wellserved.

… When we had to

take that one out because of

safety and we could no longer

get the parts, we were

void of a playground [and]

of a really nice composite

structure.”

The site of the new playground

replaces a composite

structure that was

donated by the Lions Club

in 1994 and includes board

and play surfacing, swings,

play apparatus, turf and

the firefighter theme. Other

changes include new walks

and ramps compliant with

the Americans with Disabilities

Act standards, concrete

curbing, 12 mature trees,

enclosures and fencing. The

New Lenox Community

Park District had allotted

approximately $320,000 out

of the parks and recreation

fund to pay for Firefighters

Park improvements.

Travnicek said the upgrades

have received nothing

but positive feedback —

whether it’s from children,

the New Lenox Fire Protection

District or Mayor Tim

Baldermann.

“This [section of the

park] is sort of unique that

this was always a low area

that always wanted to flood,

and then always wanted to

hold water,” Travnicek said,

referring to the new playground.

“We have underground

drainage that we can

drain the site now. So, this

was an area that we never

really used because of the

fact that it would always

flood and hold water.”

Today, the park features

several levels of elevation

in which people can access

the playground and other

amenities.

“With some earthwork and

some underground drainage,

we were able to make this

viable,” Travnicek said.

Facts about home safety

Each year, the American

Red Cross responds to

nearly 64,000 disasters, the

vast majority of which are

home fires. In order to address

this, the Red Cross

set a goal to reduce firerelated

deaths and injuries

in the US by 25 percent

by 2020.

On average:

• Seven people die every

day from a home fire

• Thirty-seven people

suffer injuries as a result of

home fires every day

• More than $7 billion in

property damage occurs every

year

How to prepare your family

Residents can keep their

family safe in the event of

a home fire with two simple

steps:

• Step 1 – Practice a

2-minute drill. Make sure

family members can safely

escape a home fire in less

than two minutes.

• Step 2 – Test your smoke

alarms monthly. Make sure

you and your family are

alerted as soon as a fire is

detected. If the smoke alarm

isn’t working, change the

batteries.

It’s great to see this new

Public Safety Complex will

be a high quality facility. Construction

ending a few months

early is an added bonus.”

The new Public Safety

Complex will house the

Sheriff’s Office, 911 Dispatch

Center, and Emergency

Telephone System Board

(ETSB). The 85,000 squarefoot

facility is located in Joliet

on Laraway Road and

Route 52. It will replace

the existing Sheriff’s Office

next door and provide a new

administration and training

building, evidence storage,

and space for a consolidated

911 Dispatch Center that

will serve 30 communities,

as well as ETSB. Currently,

there is a need for a central

location for these functions

that are now spread throughout

the County. Once the

new complex is complete,

the old Sheriff’s Office will

be torn down.

In August of 2013, after

many years of deliberation,

the Will County Board approved

a comprehensive

plan for major capital improvement

projects throughout

the County. Completion

of the Public Safety Complex

will herald the construction

of a judicial complex

in downtown Joliet on the

southwest corner of Ottawa

and Jefferson Streets. The

County purchased the former

Midwest Bank building

in late 2014 to accommodate

the Sheriff’s operations until

they move into the Public

Safety Complex. Right now,

this move will be ahead of

schedule to allow the county

to stay on schedule for the

new courthouse.

LWSRA golf outing tees off at The Sanctuary Golf Course

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

The golf outing has annually

been one of the

Lincolnway Special Recreation

Association’s biggest

fundraisers, and this year’s

was shaping up to be no

different.

The event, which was

held 9:30 a.m. Friday, Aug.

11, took place at The Sanctuary

Golf Course and featured

lunch, a dinner buffet

and raffle prizes.

LWSRA Executive Director

Keith Wallace said

it’s great to be able to host

the 10th annual golf outing.

“We started it—actually,

I was here for the very first

one—we started a long time

ago, and we just wanted to

do a golf outing,” Wallace

said. “It’s able to support

some of our programming

throughout the year, which

is absolutely phenomenal.

Our foundation [that] actually

puts on this—the

foundation golf outing for

Lincolnway Special Recreation

— they donate at least

$30,000 a year.”

This time around, the

event featured more than

50 raffle baskets for people

to browse through and try

their hand at winning.

“A lot of our families,

they bring in a lot of baskets

and a lot of donations

through that,” Wallace

said. “It’s a real community

and family approach to it,

which our families put in to

help create the baskets and

give us things throughout

the year.

“We get over 50 donations

a year from just different

people. Even some

of the golfers will donate

baskets and things like

that.”

Golfing at the event

cost $130 per person and

included a welcome gift,

complimentary range and

beverage cart on the course,

lunch at the turn and a dinner

reception. Golfers who

sponsored a hole paid $600

for a foursome, the sponsor’s

name appeared in the

golf outing program and

they received verbal recognition

at dinner.

The outing featured a

number of sponsorship opportunities

for businesses

to choose from, and rates

started at $25.

“A lot of businesses came

out to support us,” Wallace

said. “They’re going to

have a fun activity on the

holes, so [the golfers are]

going to have a real good

time out there.”

Participants enjoyed

competing in a scramble

golf with a shotgun start at

11 a.m.

“We usually get some

real good golfers who come

in every year and get some

good scores,” Wallace said.

“We’ll see how it all pans

out.”

This year’s event sold out

and brought in 144 golfers.

“That’s our goal: to sell

out,” Wallace said. “We

like to have at least two

or three sponsorships per

hole, so that is going pretty

well.”

LWSRA strives to provide

services to residents

of New Lenox, Frankfort,

Mokena, Peotone, Wilmington

and Manhattan. Proceeds

go to help the organization

and its ability to

serve people with special

needs.

“Between those six communities,

we have a good

pulse on the local businesses,

the chambers and

everything like that,” Wallace

said. “We get a good

turnout, so it’s really nice.”

Wallace said seeing the

community’s support for

LWSRA is amazing.

“It’s a real big fundraiser

for us, and we’re very appreciative

of everybody

that helps out and makes it

possible.” he said.

Conference at the Field Museum

in Chicago over the

summer.

Taylor attended the conference

to meet and collaborate

with other Anatomy and

Physiology teachers from all

over the U.S., including Texas,

California, Minnesota

and Tennessee. The conference

combined high-schoollevel

skills along with collegiate-level

expertise.

The conference offered a

hands-on, multi-sensory clay

workshop of the human anatomy.

Taylor took on the role

of a student by participating

in learning a new way of

building the body with clay.

“If the hands can build it,

the brain will remember it,”

Taylor said.

“We’ve had more students

apply for a medical program

than ever before. I learned

a different way of working

with the anatomy to bring to

the classroom,” Taylor said.

The workshop required

participants to use models

that are used in medical

schools today, which Taylor

described as an “amazing”

experience.

“It is very hard to find a

means of professional development

in our department,

so I am very grateful for the

benefits I received over this

two day event,” she said.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Wolf Road repairs on the

way

The Village of Mokena

Board of Trustees voted 6-0

Aug. 14, to approve emergency

repairs to part of Wolf

Road after an early July incident

in which the road buckled

because of extreme heat.

“Wolf Road buckled near

the Ken Heim Maintenance

Facility, just north of Marley

Creek [on July 6],” said

Mark Detloff, assistant public

works director, during the

meeting. “A contractor was

engaged on an emergency

basis that day to complete

some temporary repairs and

to make the street safe for

motorists. In order to prevent

any further faults from

occurring, permanent repairs

must be completed as soon

as possible to remove inconsistencies

in the roadway.”

Detloff said three bids

were secured by staff for

the work, with Davis Concrete

Construction Company

submitting the lowest bid at

$43,500.

“Over the years, Davis

has completed a substantial

amount of work in Mokena

with positive results, including

similar patching work on

Wolf Road,” Detloff said.

According to the staff report,

the money to pay for

the emergency repairs is to

be taken from the Village’s

capital road repair fund. Staff

noted in the report that the

Village’s capital project bids

are currently $115,220 less

than the budgeted amount.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Police: Armed home invader

sprays man with substance,

takes jewelry

A man invaded an Orland

Park home last week,

sprayed a 68-year-old man

with a substance “similar to

pepper spray” and left with

jewelry, according to police.

The incident occurred just

before 9:52 a.m. Aug. 14 in

the 9400 block of Boardwalk

Lane, according to a press

release issued by the Orland

Park Police Department the

same day.

A lone male reportedly entered

the home via an open

garage door, confronted and

sprayed the man, and then

began to search the home for

valuables. He also had a handgun

on his person that was observed

by the victim, according

to Cmdr. Tony Farrell.

The offender — described

as being between 5-foot-9 and

6-foot-0, with a thin build,

wearing a mask “similar to a

ski mask” — was inside the

home for roughly 10 minutes

before exiting with a “limited

amount” of jewelry, according

to the press release.

After the man exited the

residence, the victim was

able to reach a phone and

called 911, police said. Farrell

said the victim was evaluated

at the scene by paramedics

and did not require

transport to the hospital.

Orland Park Police said

they had no reason to believe

the man remained in the area,

but a precautionary search of

the nearby area reportedly

was conducted with the help

of the Cook County Sheriff’s

Police bloodhound, Orland

Hills officers and a helicopter.

Police ask anyone with information

that could help to

identify the alleged offender

to call (708) 349-4111.

From THE FRANKFORT STATION

Hickory Creek STEM room

unveiled

Frankfort School District

157-C officials, board members

and parents beamed

Aug. 16 as the ribbon was

cut on a new Hickory Creek

Middle School STEM room

and renovations to the

school’s library.

The project, completed

over the summer, comes as

the district continues to integrate

21st century learning

skills into its curriculum.

“We’re really excited to

offer this to our students,”

Hickory Creek Principal

Will Seidelmann said. “My

biggest pet peeve about

these two spaces will be,

yes, they’re pretty spaces,

but they all make sense. Everything

lends itself to what

we’re doing in the STEM

classroom, as well as what

we want to do with the library

space.”

The renovations to the library

replaced rows of bookshelves

with various forms of

tables and seating meant to

encourage collaboration and

teamwork. Seidelmann said

students will be able to take

advantage of the space before

and after school hours, and it

will be an ideal meeting spot

for groups such as the National

Junior Honor Society.

The STEM room, previously

a computer lab attached

to the library, now features

high- and low-top tables,

along with a project room for

students to brainstorm. According

to Seidelmann, the

room will be utilized by all

sixth- and seventh-graders

as part of their STEM encore

course and by eighth-graders

in select elective courses.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Local actress refuses to

sugarcoat her experiences

“My father called me

‘sugar,’” actress Monique

Cafe said. “All is right with

the world.”

The 57-year-old performer

from Matteson repeated

that phrase during her onewoman

tell-all show, which

starts with her nickname and

unfolds into her life story.

Cafe — who wrote, produced

and starred in “Sugar”—

held back to back performances

Aug. 12 and 13 at

the Tinley Park Performing

Arts Center.

“This is what I’ve been

working for so I’m excited,”

Cafe said, prior to the start

of the Sunday matinee. “I’ve

been performing up in the

city, but I wanted to bring

something new out to the

south suburbs, where I’m

from, so that the people who

know me best can experience

my show.”

Cafe’s family members

were peppered throughout

the packed theater, including

her husband, Charles Gary,

and cousin, Joy Johnson.

“Just because I’m her

cousin doesn’t mean I know

what to expect from the

show,” Johnson said. “There

are some things you might

not talk about with family.

So, I’m going to be just as

amazed, shocked or entertained

as everyone else.”

Throughout “Sugar,” Cafe

weaved in and out of the pivotal

moments in her life and

revisited parts of her past,

which included an unexpected

childhood loss to a family

mystery.

“I’m really happy to do the

full premiere of the show in

the south suburbs, because

that’s where I’m from,” Cafe

said. “Now, I can expand it

out to other areas. I think

that everybody can relate to

something in this story.”

From the Assistant Editor

Football lessons from ‘Game of Thrones’

Amanda Stoll

a.stoll@22ndcenturymedia.com

The game of football

draws many parallels

to the popular HBO

series “Game of Thrones,”

which is why the “Football

is Coming” title was chosen

for 22nd Century Media’s

annual football preview.

The preview has taken

over the sports section,

much like GoT has taken

over people’s Sunday evenings

lately.

For those of you who

haven’t watched the show,

I’d highly recommend it. Yes,

we’re now in Season 7, but

a look at the Nielsen ratings

will show you that more and

more people have been viewing

the show each season.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Man reportedly shot during

drug deal in Lockport

A Romeoville man reportedly

was shot in the arm

Aug. 16 during a drug deal

in Fairmont.

The victim suffered non

life-threatening injuries during

the transaction in Lockport’s

Fairmont subdivision,

and drove to East Romeo

Road in Romeoville, where

Will County Sheriff’s deputies

responded around 1:15

p.m., according to Will

County spokesperson Kathy

It’s never too late to start

watching a show, so go

ahead and start binge watching

seasons 1-6. By the time

you get done with season

6, the current season will

likely be released for home

viewing.

The story is based on a

series of books by George

R.R. Martin that can be

described as a medieval

fantasy epic — which I have

not read yet, but plan to —

and it has translated well to

the longer-episode, series

format.

Fun fact: The book series

is actually titled “A Song of

Ice and Fire” with the first

novel being titled “A Game

of Thrones.”

I’ll admit the first season

had a bit more nudity and

graphic violence than I think

I was prepared for, but don’t

let that scare you off. The

seasons focus less on the

carnal in subsequent seasons

and the story lines get much

more interesting.

Don’t let the word “fantasy”

scare you off either.

I know a lot of people who

probably wouldn’t be attracted

to things like “Lord

of the Rings” or the Harry

Potter series but have found

“Game of Thrones” to be

quite enjoyable.

They probably feel the

way about GoT that I feel

about most sports. If I don’t

pay much attention to the

games, scores and fantasy

leagues throughout the season,

then I really couldn’t

care less when it comes

around time for the Superbowl

or the Stanley Cup. If

I really get invested during

the season; though, then I’m

all in when it comes to the

playoffs.

So, let’s compare the

football preview to “Game

of Thrones” once again.

GoT is full of leaders,

each with their own unique

style of conquering. Whether

it be by force, stealth

or fear, or a combination

thereof, making the right

moves at the right times is

crucial.

In football, those plays can

make or break a game and

it’s up to the teams’ leaders

— the coaches and captains

— to make it happen.

Hoffmeyer.

The 22-year-old told deputies

he set up a meeting

with an unknown individual

via Snapchat to purchase

cannabis, and when he drove

to Fairmont Avenue around

12:45 p.m., he was approached

by a man described

as black, 17-18 years old,

5-foot-6 and 120 pounds,

with no facial hair. The man

asked to see the money for

the transaction and said he

would be right back.

After the first man walked

away, a second man — described

as black, with a

medium skin tone, 17-18

years old, 6-foot-2 and 150

pounds, with a light mustache

— entered the passenger

side of the vehicle

and revealed a handgun.

The Romeoville man reportedly

attempted to push the

other man out of the vehicle

and began to drive away, at

which point the man in the

passenger’s seat shot the Romeoville

man as he jumped

out of the moving vehicle.

The alleged victim was

transferred to Adventist

Medical Center in Bolingbrook.

Will County Sheriff’s

detectives are investigating

the incident.

Reporting by Max Lapthorne,

Editor. For more, visit

LockportLegend.com.

Leadership isn’t all about

having a fancy title; though,

and, as we’ve seen with

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)

in GoT, sometimes

even the little guy can make

a big difference.

That could mean one

player or an entire team.

Either way, anything is

possible when it comes to

a new football season — or

a new season of “Game of

Thrones” for that matter.

Our sports section will

tell you when and where the

fall football games are, who

the players are, which will

help you keep tabs on all the

areas teams.

Luckily, with “Game

of Thrones” you can get

replays on every episode

and prepare yourself for the

final season, or championship

if you will, and be part

of the hype that is one of

my new favorite stories.

Poetry Corner

FRAGILE BLUE

Uninhabited ruins

Overspread the earth with sin

O Watcher of men, awaken

Come Jesus, bring victory’s win.

Bitterness strengthens in trials

Throbbing chasms of wickedness

Barely to catch my breath

Into a pathless wilderness.

Crushed in the treads of waves

Contempt disarms the weak

Wages of hurtful offenses

Disgraced beyond misery.

Words like strong winds, spoken

Terrified with visions of dread

Anguish pours forth precisely

Strangling my soul to shred.

Days in the land of darkness

Spent without hope, no remedy

Subverted judgment applied

Now regarded as an enemy.

The forger of lies imprisons

Whose feet slip into his traps

Tightens, bond of the shackled

Shame and guilt’s deceitful slap.

Company of hypocrites, slay

Unprofitable talk is filthy

The abominable sword awaits

Empty knowledge acts stealthy.

My cries find no resting place

I lay shattered in the dust

Steps of strength, shortened

Silence for now to entrust.

Conceal me, though I be shaken

As I grope in darkness for light

Oppressed, despised and barren

Vindicate me less I die.

Rebuke mockers that taunt me

Sorrow looks for a dwelling place

Estranged acquaintances loud

My memory perished in disgrace.

Cover the faces of my judges

That plunged me into the pit

Preserve my spirit in Thy care

You alone God can acquit.

Supplication made to God

Secured hope to rest in safety

Forgives in His mercy and grace

Renews His witness greatly

The New Lenox Patriot | August 24, 2017 | 21

Dickson’s next step in career lands in New Lenox

Amanda Stoll, Assistant Editor

It’s been about two months

since The Rev. Wesley

Dickson was appointed his

new position as senior pastor

at the United Methodist

Church of New Lenox, but

he’s already putting the pressure

on himself to remember

everyone’s names.

“I’m the kind of person

who loves to meet with

people, loves to get to know

who they are and loves to

encounter folks,” Dickson

said. “This is a church that’s

just big enough that it’s

tough to learn everybody’s

name quickly. So, there’s a

piece of me that’s really adjusting

to not really knowing

everybody right away.”

That’s part of his personality

though, trying to get to

know everyone in his church

as soon as he can and helping

them in their faith journey.

“I love what I do,” Dickson

said. “I have a passion

of just connecting people to

faith that’s deep, and rich

and meaningful, and something

that’s going to provide

a reason for you to want to

get out of bed on a Sunday

morning to engage in faith,

to cause you to think, to

grow a little bit deeper, to be

challenged a little bit. But,

also just to experience something

that equips you to have

quality community.”

Dickson grew up in Bristol

and graduated from Northern

Illinois University in DeKalb

with a degree in communication

studies before attending

the University of Dubuque

Theological Seminary, where

he received his Master of Divinity

degree.

He became a pastor long

before the degrees, however,

and began preaching at two

small churches at the age of

20 when he said he experienced

the call to ministry.

As part of the United Methodist

Church’s process of itinerancy,

where pastors are appointed

to different churches

on a yearly basis. Dickson

most recently served as a pastor

at a church in Sterling and

Bolingbrook before that.

He and his wife, Karen,

had dated since middle school

before getting married after

college. She works as a

speech-language pathologist

at Independence Elementary

School in Bolingbrook, where

the couple currently lives.

Aside from the challenge

of learning his parishioners’

names, Dickson said he is

adjusting well to the new

church and is looking forward

to September when

programming at the church

picks back up.

“For the most part, a lot of

what we do as pastors is pretty

transferable from place

to place,” Dickson said. “...

Even though [pastors] move

among different churches,

we’re all structured the same

because we all basically

adhere to the same Book

of Discipline, which is the

outline for how we structure

our life and ministry and our

work together.”

Another change for Dickson

has been that he has some

extra help in the form of The

Rev. Matthew Krings — the

associate pastor at UMC of

New Lenox.

“My experience up until

[coming to New Lenox] has

been serving as a solo pastor,

so one of the things I’m pleasantly

adjusting to I’m is working

with a colleague,” Dickson

said. “We can frequently

get together and bounce ideas

off of each other, and make

sure that ministries are covered,

and that we’re able to do

the work together and coordinate,

which, as far as I’m concerned,

is one of the greatest

blessings of this place.”

Aside from his work at the

church, Dickson said he enjoys

reading and geocaching

in his free time — and said

he’s already found a few caches

near the church and along

the Old Plank Road Trail.

Dickson has a unique way

of describing faith, and compares

it to Magic Eye images

— stereograms that were popular

in the 90s and feature an

intricate, computer generated

pattern with a hidden 3D image.

“There’s so many people

who get lost in the details or

you just give up, or you just

don’t focus on it, But, to catch

a glimpse of the actual 3D image

is one of the greatest moments,”

Dickson said. “That’s

my passion is to equip people

to stick with it [and] look

deeper. Don’t get lost in the

tedium, and don’t just eliminate

pieces that you don’t

like. There’s something rich

behind there, and if you catch

the image of the fullness of

our faith it’s magnificent, just

magnificent.”

Chapter Chatter

Emma Cline takes you on a rollercoaster ride with ‘The Girls’

Haley Thompson

New Lenox Resident

Emma Cline has

written a novel that

demands attention.

Debut novels as hypnotic

as “The Girls” is very rare.

Praise for Cline’s work has

disquieted The Los Angeles

Times, The Washington Post

and The Guardian.

Although I, Haley

Thompson (the recent

college graduate), does

not represent a prestigious

company, I think my review

of “The Girls” arrests its

fame. You can take my word

for it. “The Girls” has officially

become my favorite

book of the summer.

Written with spellbinding

diction, Cline seduces

anyone who dares to pick up

her masterpiece. Illustrating

the nightmare of Charles

Manson’s infamous commune,

Cline’s writing is told

through a fictional character

who shares her pleasurably

evil summer with the cult

and its mystic ring leader.

The book is set in northern

California amidst the start

of summer and the end

the 1960s. Following the

civil rights riots and protests,

a free-love movement

emerges.

Fourteen year-old Evie

Boyd’s life takes a dramatic

shift after she catches her

father cheating (someone

took the free-love movement

too literally). Her parents’

divorce leaves her more

abandoned than ever before.

The one friend Evie had,

Connie, severed their friendship

following an incestual

scandal. As summer begins,

Evie’s father is living with a

barely-legal bombshell, and

her once poised mother, has

transformed into a incense

burning, married-man-dating

sleaze. Evie isolates herself

in a blanket of depression

and loneliness. She is now

friendless and family-less. It

doesn’t take long for a heavy

tension between Evie and

her mother to birth a divide

into their home.

How did she go from endless

sleepovers spent taking

life advice from a Cosmopolitan

magazine and family

vacations to isolation? The

aftermath of an absent father,

a hippie mother who is

soul searching and a slimey

best friend break up leads

Evie Boyd directly into the

greedy hands of a cult.

Evie would do anything to

become accepted by the farrelly

beautiful group of girls

she sees ravishing through

dumpsters for food and

stealing toilet paper from the

local convenience store. A

sudden obsession with their

stench of unwashed freedom

overtakes her. Evie begins

stealing money, food and

breaking into houses to gain

the conditional acceptance

from them.

She is quickly woven into

the girls “group” and is soon

taken to a run down farm to

meet their “leader.” Evie is

unaware that this gathering

and essence of sexual attraction

between all the girls

and this man is a cult.

Evie’s life soon seems

to spiral out of control.

From getting arrested, being

brainwashed to oppose

societal norms, having sex

with middle-aged men,

falling in love with girls and

being a lover of her favorite

Suzanne, Evie no longer

recognizes herself. She

could have never known

that the summer she spent

with “the girls” would brand

her for life as a member one

of the most murderous and

infamous cults of the ages.

One mistake, gone horribly

wrong leaves countless lives

lost and innocence stolen.

AFJROTC students shine at leadership school

Submitted by Lincoln-Way

Community High School

District 210

Back in June, Lincoln-Way

students from the Air Force

Junior ROTC programs completed

a week-long Leadership

School conducted at

Wright State University in

Dayton, Ohio. Cadets endured

intense physical training,

leadership skill classes

and team-building activities.

Among the 150 cadets at

the camp, 12 Lincoln-Way

students were also there

to represent Illinois. High

schools from Ohio, Kentucky

and Michigan also participated.

Cadets who attended the

course were Hunter Brugler,

Matthew Deavers, Dominica

Diangi, Alexis Dunham,

Arick Hauschild, Elizabeth

Ihrke, Taylor Lenburg, Kirsten

Lutz, Elizabeth Prynn,

Raechel Sweeney, Michael

Thompson and Nathaniel

Zambrano. They were accompanied

by Lt. Col. John

O’Connor (LW East) and

Master Sgt. Dan Schliffka

(LW Central, LW West)

Lincoln-Way has several

outstanding cadets who

were recognized during this

week-long program. Lenburg

received the Top Academic

Award by achieving the highest

score on the academic

exam in the past eight years.

Brugler, Deavers and Prynn

were awarded Top Squadron

Members. Diangi was

presented as the Top Flight

Member. Deavers and Prynn

also earned First Place Flight

Drill Competitors. Hauschild

took home the Field Training

Exercise Award. Lastly,

Lenburg, Zambrano, Lutz

and Thompson were honored

with the Escape and Evasion

Top Survival Rate.

“Our cadets did an incredible

job representing Lincoln-

Way,” Schliffka said. “It was

our first time to attend this

particular Leadership School,

and it is considered to be one

of the most highly structured

and disciplined course available

to cadets in the Midwest.

They were all personally selected

to attend and did not

disappoint in their determination

to excel.”

Lenberg said she took

away a lot from the weeklong

program.

“Ohio Valley Leadership

School was a rigorous experience

that tested everyone’s

physical, mental, and emotional

strength, to a point that

most high schoolers probably

have not undergone before,”

Lenberg said. “It forced us

to face our fears and misgivings,

and ultimately taught

us how leaders act and think.

And although it was incredibly,

unbelievably difficult, it

was one of the most influential

weeks of my life, both in

teaching me about my own

strength, as well the strength

of relying on my peers. I am

very glad to have pushed

through it.”

Build and Move into Your New Home from the low $200s

With Lincoln-Way Schools at Prairie Trails in Manhattan

Distinctive Home Builders provides homeowners the

highest quality home on the market

Distinctive Home Builders

continues to add high quality

homes to the Manhattan

landscape at Prairie Trails; its

latest new home community,

located within the highly-regarded

Lincoln-Way School

District. Many families are

happy to call Prairie Trails

home and are pleased that

Distinctive is able to deliver a

new home with zero punch list

items in 90 days. Before closing,

each home undergoes an

industry-leading checklist that

ensures each home measures

up to the firm’s high quality

standards.

“Actually our last average

was 81 working days from excavation

to receiving a home

occupancy permit - without

sacrificing quality,” said Bryan

Nooner, president of Distinctive

Home Builders. “Everyone

at the company works

extremely hard to continually

achieve this delivery goal for

our homeowners. Our three

decades building homes provides

this efficient construction

system. Many of our

skilled craftsmen have been

working with our company for

Recently closed Prairie Trails Arbor Model

over 20 years. We also take

pride on having excellent communicators

throughout our

organization. This translates

into a positive buying and

building experience for our

homeowners and one of the

highest referral rates in the industry

for Distinctive.”

In all, buyers can select

from 13 ranch, split-level and

six two-story single-family

home styles; each offering

three to eight different exterior

elevations. The three- to

four-bedroom homes feature

two to two-and-one-half

baths, two- to three-car garages

and a family room, all in

approximately 1,600 to over

3,000 square feet of living

space. Basements are included

in most models as well. Distinctive

also encourages customization

to make your new

home truly personalized to

suit your lifestyle.

Oversize home sites; brick

exteriors on all four sides of

the first floor; custom maple

cabinets; ceramic tile or hardwood

floors in the kitchen,

baths and foyer; genuine wood

trim and doors; granite countertops

and concrete driveways

can all be yours at Prairie

Trails. All home sites at Prairie

Trails can accommodate a

three-car garage; a very important

amenity to the Manhattan

homebuyer, according

to Nooner.

“When we opened Prairie

Trails we wanted to provide

the best new home value for

the dollar and we feel with

offering Premium Standard

Features that we do just that.

So why wait? This is truly the

best time to build your dream

home!”

Distinctive offers custom

maple kitchen cabinets featuring

solid wood construction

(no particle board), have solid

wood drawers with dove tail

joints, which is very rare in the

marketplace. “When you buy

a new home from Distinctive,

you truly are receiving custom

made cabinets in every home

we sell no matter what the

price range,” noted Nooner.

Nooner added that all

homes are highly energy efficient.

Every home built will

have upgraded wall and ceiling

insulation values with

Recently closed Prairie Trails Arbor Model

energy efficient windows and

high efficiency furnaces. Before

homeowners move into

their new home, Distinctive

Home Builders conducts a

blower door test that pressurizes

the home to ensure that

each home passes a set of very

stringent Energy Efficiency

guidelines.

Typically a wide variety of

homes are available to tour

that include ranch and twostory

homes.

Distinctive is also offering

a brand new home, the

Stonegrove, a 3,000 square

foot open concept home with a

split foyer entry, formal living

and dining rooms, a two-story

great room, four bedrooms

and an upstairs laundry room.

Distinctive also offers Appbased

technology allowing its

homeowners to be updated

on the progress of their new

home 24 hours a day, seven

days a week at the touch of a

button.

Prairie Trails is also a beautiful

place to live featuring a

20-acre lake on site, as well

as direct access to the 22-mile

Wauponsee Glacial Prairie

Path that borders the community

and meanders through

many neighboring communities

and links to many other

popular trails. The Manhattan

Metra station is also nearby.

Besides Prairie Trails, Distinctive

Home Builders has

built hundreds of homes

throughout Manhattan in the

Butternut Ridge and Leighlinbridge

developments, as well

as thousands in the Will and

south Cook county areas over

the past 30 years.

Weakness quickly turned

“I don’t really think it

matters who is behind us,”

McFarland said. “We have a

strong, tight-knit group unit,

and we trust everyone on the

line to do their job. We’ll get

the job done, and we know

we can’t run it for them. We

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Ryan Robbins

Ryan Robbins is a senior

linebacker for the Lincoln-

Way West football team.

How did you get into

football?

My brother actually

played before me. He just

kind of paved the way for

me. He made me want to

play the game, as well as my

dad [Ted Robbins] being the

athletic director here. I was

around sports all the time.

What’s the best part

about the sport?

Honestly, it’s the group

of guys. You spend all summer,

you spend all the time

in the offseason, in the

weight room, you create a

bond that’s like nothing else

you’re going to find.

You played running

back last year. Would

you rather be in the

backfield or be a

linebacker?

I like linebacker. I like delivering

the hits instead of

getting them.

What’s the biggest

lesson you’ve learned

from coach Dave Ernst?

He’s really big on the

whole toughness factor, not

only in football but in life.

Take every day with your

best effort and not going

back to anything. That’s

probably the biggest thing

he’s taught us these whole

four years.

If you won the lottery,

what’s the first thing

you’d buy?

I’d probably buy myself a

nice new car. I’d go with a

Nissan GTR.

What’s something most

people don’t know

about you?

Most people know everything

about me, but I spend

probably 98 percent of my

life at Lincoln-Way West

High School.

Do you have any

pregame superstitions?

I always put on my right

shoe first. I’ve always done

it.

What are you going to

miss about West being

your last year here?

James Sanchez/22nd century

media

I’ll miss everything. I’ve

known these coaches forever.

My brother coming here

and my sister - I’ve been

around the programs all my

life. So, developing relationships,

I’m definitely going

to miss that. I grew up here,

so it’s going to be sad leaving

these guys and leaving

coach Ernst and the opportunities

he’s given me. I’m

very grateful for him.

What would your perfect

post-game meal be?

I’m always a big peanut

butter cracker guy. Peanut

butter and jelly, too. Peanut

butter all the time.

If you could be anyone

for a day, who would

you be?

I’d probably be Spider-

Man. Just his athleticism and

his “spidey sense.” That’d

be pretty cool.

Skill positions to keep Titans in contention

Tim Carroll, Sports Editor

Tinley Park football

reached new heights in

2015. The Titans made a

quarterfinal playoff appearance,

going 9-3 during the

regular season and playoffs

combined, en route to their

best season in nearly 30

years.

With new pieces in place

in 2016 — the Titans had

only five returning starters

— Tinley Park finished the

regular season 4-5.

“We started fast last year,

and then we kind of lost a

couple tough games and

never really got back into

finishing games and winning,”

Tinley Park coach

Nick Johnston said.

Now, there is hope for a

return to the playoffs, with

key cogs in the offense

making their return to the

Titans.

“The strength of the team

is definitely our skill has

returned,” Johnston said.

“Our offensive skill has all

returned from a year ago

— our quarterback, our

running back, our receivers

are primarily all back.

So, they have to be the unit

that makes plays down the

clutch. That’s definitely

been a strength from the

summer until now.”

Senior quarterback Ryan

Zientara, who gained lots

of experience as the starter

in 2016, will find himself in

the backfield with another

talented returning starter in

running back Elijah Webster.

Senior receivers Justin

Taylor, David Morgan and

Joel Zackavec will also provide

stability for Zientara

on the perimeter of the offense.

The defensive side of the

ball had a little more attrition

coming into 2017, but

standout returners include

senior defensive lineman

linebacker Jose Marban,

who earned experience

on the defense in 2016 as

a sophomore and may be

one of the keys to Tinley’s

success as the most experienced

player on the second

level of the defense.

With many returners on

offense and a couple defensive

returners in the front

seven, Johnston said he

thinks the team can start as

fast as it did in 2016. It just

needs to continue that pace

throughout the rest of the

year.

“We need to start fast

again, like we did last year,

but when we get to the middle

part of the year, we’ve

got to win games in conference,”

Johnston said.

Saluting an alumnus

Wins and losses are the

mark by which a football

team is judged. But the Tinley

Park football team may

have a more important priority

this season: the Tim

Jones game.

officer, was shot and

park alumnus and former

Titan football player, Jones

will be honored during

Tinley Park’s second game

against Rich East at 7 p.m.

Sept. 1.

“We dedicated and committed

a lot of time for him

and his fundraiser and the

foundation,” Johnston said. “

... We’re having our Salute to

Blue Night [Sept. 1]. So, any

servicemen [and] policemen

will be honored at the game,

and Tim Jones will be there,

too. So, that’ll be a big game

for him and our players and

our community.”

Who is your coaching hero?

Well, growing up, it was my dad, because I

was around him when he coached and taught. He

was a longtime coach and teacher in the district.

And then, through [Tinley Park], it would definitely

be coach [Lou] Narish, who was the longtime

coach here. When I got here, he mentored

me, as well.

Which phase of football is your specialty?

I’ve coached all sides. I’ve coached offense,

defense and special teams. I like to think of myself

as someone that can coach any position and

be able to run with it, so definitely all of them.

What has been a favorite moment during your

coaching career?

Favorite moment would be winning the second-round

game at Glenbard [in 2015] and moving

on to the third round, the quarterfinals, and

getting Tinley Park in some uncharted territory

— to where only one team has been — and seeing

the overall team and community come together

for support.

Andrew looks for big leap forward

Second-year coach,

returning starters have

things looking up

Randy Whalen

Freelance Reporter

On the surface, it might have

seemed like one victory in an otherwise

winless season.

But to the Andrew football team,

last year’s season-ending 17-6 win

over sister school Stagg symbolized

a new beginning — one the

Thunderbolts plan to take into this

season, as they continue to improve

in the second season under

coach Adam Lewandowski.

“I’m really excited,” Lewandowski

said of the upcoming season.

“I’m excited, because the guys

that are returning know the expectations.

We don’t have to work on

those anymore. We can focus on

getting better as athletes. We know

what it takes to get better on the

football field.”

The T-Bolts certainly plan to better

last year’s 1-8 record. Before

last season, the previous time they

were 1-8 was 1985. But a program

turnaround began with four wins

the next season. By 1988, Andrew

was in the playoffs for the first

time ever and qualified a total of 17

times in the next 26 seasons.

Currently, there has been a threeyear

playoff drought. While the T-

Bolts are not guaranteeing a playoff

berth this year, they do think

they will be much better.

“One of the biggest things is we’re

back for another year with coach

Lew,” senior quarterback Jack Condon

said of the second season under

Lewandowski. “Our ability is going

to start showing on the field.”

Condon, who is one of four returning

offensive starters, said he

thinks everything was set in motion

by that first win in the final game

last season.

“After going through the season

with eight straight losses, that win

showed what we could do,” Condon

said. “Now, we are going into

Friday nights as hard as we can.

Everyone is on the same page, and

we know what to do to succeed.”

In addition to Condon — who

Tim Carroll/22nd Century Media

was a wide receiver last year — the

other returning offensive senior

starters are offensive lineman Mike

DeHaan, Cole Griffin at running

back and Austin O’Connor on the

offensive line.

DeHaan will play both ways, as

he will play defensive end, as well.

Other returning defensive starters

include linebackers Ameer Aqel,

Josh Dyke and Tommy Piekarz, as

well as 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive

lineman Adam Jumah.

“It was important, as it started

our streak off going into this year,”

Piekarz said of last year’s seasonending

victory and how it will affect

returning players. “It’s something

to build off of.”

Piekarz, who enters his third varsity

season at middle linebacker

and has been through two head

coaches, said he thinks the team

will keep building.

“Last year was [Lewandowski’s]

first year, and everything was new,”

he said. “Adjusting to everything

was all very new. But now, we’re

ready. We just have to keep working

hard and getting it done. We’re

really looking to get some more

wins. I know we will be better.”

Something with which Lewandowski

said he is happy is that

What is one team you are you looking forward

to playing?

Thornton, Game 1. Doesn’t matter who it

would be, I’m looking forward to Game 1 the

most.

What has been a favorite moment during your

coaching career?

When we beat Stagg last year and the student

body and the cheerleaders and the team joined

in the school fight song after we won, at the

50-yard line, on our home field, that was my

favorite Andrew football moment.

What is one lesson you want your team to

learn by the end of the season?

Life can be very difficult. It can be very hard

and challenging. Sometimes, it feels real cruel

and unfair. But if you work hard and you are

doing things for the right reason, you can overcome

any adversity in life. Football’s a great

symbol of that, but it’s something that you can

use in life, which is what I love most about it.

Porters desirous of another postseason berth, more

Randy Whalen

Freelance Reporter

A year ago, the Lockport

Township football team was

humming a line from an old

AC/DC song.

“Now I’m back in the ring

to take another swing.”

This season, the Porters

hope to be shaking teams

all night long, as they will

be bidding for their second

straight playoff appearance.

With numerous players back

from last year’s team, which

finished 6-4 and made the

team’s first postseason appearance

since 2011, they

have a good shot.

“We were in the playoffs,

we got back in the ring,”

Lockport coach Dan Starkey

said. “We got punched in

the face [in a 45-0 loss to St.

Charles East in the opening

round of the Class 8A playoffs]

there, but the kids want

to be back in that game and

go beyond.”

Starkey enters his fourth

year, so this season’s seniors

have been in Starkey’s program

the whole time.

“The first couple of years,

we were going through

growing pains,” Starkey

said. “But now ... we have

41 seniors on the team this

season. Not that many of

them were starters, but a lot

of them paid their dues and

will be ready.”

One of those players is

Haleem Ajibola.

“I’m ready,” he said. “I

certainly feel ready. All of

us seniors have been playing

together for four years. Our

defensive guys have been

playing together since freshman

year, and that’s only going

to help us.”

A couple of other seniors

hoping to make big contributions

are defensive backs

Niko Malevitis and Jon Savage,

along with seniors Jake

Pietryk at defensive end and

Brittany Kapa/22nd Century media

Zach Reese at defensive

back.

The Porters defense was

stellar for much of last season,

holding teams to 16

points or fewer on six occasions,

including three times

to fewer than 10 points and

a shutout over Stagg.

On offense, Lockport has

six returning starters. They

are seniors Austin Hoffman

at fullback/tight end, Tavares

Moore at running back,

Tommy Mulhall at offensive

line, Sam Pierson at fullback

and Alek Trafton on the offensive

line.

Junior quarterback Jake

Karli started the Porters’

last two games in 2016

when then-senior Ben Davis

missed the last three weeks

due to illness.

“The experience really

helps,” Karli said. “It gives

me that different mental advantage,

and I’ll come out

ready.”

While Karli looks forward

to the challenges of the season,

he will have a couple

new senior targets in receivers

Tim Houlihan and Nick

Ward.

Someone else who got

experience at the end of last

year was kicker/punter Ryan

Barth. The junior had those

duties at the end of last season

when Davis was out.

A key to last season’s

playoff push was the Porters

getting off to a good start.

They opened 3-0, which included

a pair of two-point

victories over South Elgin

and Lincoln-Way Central.

While those teams are on the

schedule again this season,

Dan Starkey

2016 regular season record: 6-3

What is your favorite play to run?

We like to run the football a lot of different

ways. I really believe good football teams can

run the football and they can stop the run. I

would say my favorite football play is [an] iso.

Which phase of football is your speciality?

I’d say my speciality in football is defense and

special teams. I played linebacker in college at

Illinois State, and I played on a lot of special

teams. Those are the areas I love coaching and

that I have a passion for. Really, the special teams

and coaching linebackers, to make it a little more

narrow.

What is the team’s motto?

A team motto is “refuse to lose.” It comes

from a saying, “I am the champion, and I refuse

to lose.” It’s just something that we chant after a

game. We want to see our kids play with a nevergive-up

attitude, and it’s just part of the philosophy.

pertinent to success, the

end of the schedule will be

huge this fall. The final three

games are against Lincoln-

Way East, Wheaton-Warrenville

South and Bradley-

Bourbonnais, which was one

of two SouthWest Suburban

Conference teams that went

undefeated last season.

The matchup with Wheaton-Warrenville

South is an

interesting one, as it has a

personal tie for Lockport’s

coach.

“I taught and coached

at Wheaton-Warrenville

South from 1994-2000,”

Starkey said. “I coached

alongside their coach, Ron

Muhitch, at that time. He

was one of my mentors

and is now the head coach

[since 2002]. Plus, there’s a

playoff history with them.

So, it’s going to be great

to have them here for a

game.”

As has been the case

since Starkey took over,

there is a theme to this season.

This year, it is “Savage

SZN,” with the SZN pronounced

like “season.”

“The kids wanted that,”

Starkey said. “It means we

want to play with a lot of

pride and be ready every

week. We want to build

quality depth and know we

have multiple players to

count on. We want to build

trust, chemistry and teamwork;

be champions on and

off the field.

Sandburg’s young bunch keeps expectations high

Tim Carroll, Sports Editor

Sandburg coach Scott Peters

still has high expectations.

In 2016, Peters’ first year

as the coach at Sandburg, he

knew the team was going to

be the underdog in most of

its games. The Eagles finished

the season 4-5.

But his plan for the Sandburg

football program remains

a lofty one.

“Our goal ... is eventually

[to] get it to a point where

we’re consistently a quarterfinal

team,” Peters said.

“I feel like once that starts

to happen, then you’re going

to have a year where you

breakthrough.”

Peters acknowledged that

Sandburg is not at that level

just yet. For the short term,

though, Peters just wants his

team to continue improving.

“We won a couple games

at the end of the year, which

I thought helps us building

some momentum into this

year,” he said. “[We] just

focus on the now, get better

every day. At the end of the

year, if we do that, we’ll be

the best team we can possibly

be.”

In an attempt to prepare

his team for a high school

football season, Peters and

his staff have been emphasizing

the ground game, as

well as its counterpart.

“The thing that we always

try to stress is ability to run

the football and stop the run,”

Peters said. “Those are things

that we try to hang our hat on

as a coaching staff and we

preach to our players.”

That may be a challenge

for the Eagles, as the bulk

of the returners on both offense

and defense are on the

perimeter or in the backfield.

“We have a lot of guys

coming back on the back half

of our defense,” Peters said.

“We have linebackers returning;

we have [defensive

backs] returning. We only

have one lineman returning.

So, obviously our kids feel

good with [defending] the

passing game. That’s going

to be a strength for us.”

Cornerback Ricky Kwak,

as well as safeties Jaimie Marines

and Anthony Hansler,

make their returns to the

team. Linebackers Alex

Hirschfield, Colin Dominski

and Mike Stevens also are

returning, along with defensive

end Moe Jumah.

Even with new starters on

the interior of the defensive

line, Peters, who calls the

defense, said he has the ability

to give opposing offenses

different looks.

“We have the ability to

move from a [three-man]

front to a four front — and

even a five, if we need to —

based on the formations we

get,” Peters said. “The techniques

don’t change a lot for

the kids, [but] it looks different

to the offense, [and] obviously

they’re going to have to

block things differently.”

Tim Carroll/22nd Century Media

On the other side of the

ball, receivers Nick Shelton

and John Murphy come back

to provide a spark on the

outside, while Alex Lunak

and Joe Boyce figure to bolster

the offensive line.

Offensive coordinator

Kevin Fahey said he has

liked what he has seen from

his team to enter the season.

“We’re young,” he said.

“But we’ve had a great

summer, a great preseason.

The expectations haven’t

changed from the year before.

We’re looking like we

should have a lot of success.”

While junior quarterback

Ben Starcevich may experience

some growing pains in

his first season at the helm

of the offense, he also will

have a group of experienced

receivers at his disposal in

Shelton, Murphy and fellow

senior Will Davis. Fahey

said Starcevich has another

tool working in his favor.

“He’s incredibly intelligent,”

Fahey said. “He picks

up things very quickly —

ideas, schemes, whatever we

throw at him.

“When you have a quarterback

like that, you feel

like you can game plan for

almost any team and execute

that game plan.”

Starcevich will be joined

in the offensive backfield by

another junior, running back

Andrew Schab.

“He has had a tremendous,

tremendous offseason,” Fahey

said of his featured back.

“He’s fast, [and] he’s low to

the ground.

“We feel extremely glad

What is your favorite play to run?

Something that works. You know, that’s a great

question. I mean, as a defensive guy, we’re a fundamental-type

team. So, for me, there’s nothing

better than a solid, fundamental play that’s successful.

One of the cool traditions that we do here before

walk down the drive, and the drumline [and]

band are leading us out. The kids get pretty

pumped. They were stretching right before that,

and the drummers are going crazy in the hallway.

They’re playing stuff, and our kids love it. Our

band director does an awesome job with those

kids. So, that’s one of the traditions that we have

since I started here that the kids love. I think the

band really likes it; they feel like they’re a part

of it.

East plans to continue winning tradition in 2017

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

In an ever-changing world,

there are only a few things on

which anyone can count: death,

taxes and Lincoln-Way East making

the playoffs.

In the 16 years of the school’s

existence, East has amassed a

151-38 record and qualified for

the postseason every single year.

Along the way, the Griffins have

won a state title and finished second.

Last year, they were ousted in

the Class 8A quarterfinals by the

eventual state champion, Maine

South, thanks to a last-second

field goal.

But heading into 2017, East is

back with depth and some new,

game-changing talents.

On offense, the Griffins will be

led by senior quarterback Brendan

Morrissey. If the name looks familiar,

that is because Morrissey

was a fixture on last year’s team as

one of the three running backs the

Griffins unleashed on opponents.

“He was a quarterback his

whole life except for last year,”

coach Rob Zvonar said. “He’s

moved back [to quarterback] this

year and been the leader of our

offense. In some respects, he’s

arguably the fastest — pound for

pound — and strongest, smartest

kid on the team. That’s a nice

kid to have taking the ball every

time.”

While the Griffins had to say

goodbye to longtime varsity running

back Nigel Muhammad in

2016, they will have some incredible

options at the position this

year. Among the crowded backfield

are senior Ryan Scianna, who

got lots of playing time on last

year’s team; senior Chris Wilder;

junior Jordan Corbett; and sophomore

A.J. Henning, a dynamic

talent who was already offered a

scholarship by the University of

Illinois Urbana-Champaign earlier

this summer.

“We’re going to put [Henning] all

over the place — slot, tailback, wherever

we can get some touches for

him,” Zvonar said. “We knew what

we had with him. He went through

the freshman and sophomore levels

like no one we’ve ever seen before.”

The road ahead

• Week 1 — hosts Crete-Monee,

7 p.m. Aug. 25

• Week 2 — at Maine South,

7:15 p.m. Sept. 1

• Week 3 — at Andrew, 7:15 p.m.

p.m. Oct . 6

• Week 8 — hosts Thornwood, 7

p.m. Oct. 13

• Week 9 — at Bolingbrook, 7

p.m. Oct. 20

At tight end, senior Turner

Pallissard is back for another year

on varsity. He is joined by fellow

tight end and senior Jack Cohrs.

“It allows us to play a two tight

end set sometimes,” Zvonar said.

“Turner is going to be a mismatch

for a lot of teams.”

At wide receiver, East will rely

on seniors Mason Keenan, Shane

Pedersen and Evan McDermed,

and juniors Josh Ohiku and Jackson

Ritter.

Jake Buhe, a senior and threeyear

starter, is slated to anchor the

offensive line. He will be joined

by juniors Dane Eggert and Anthony

Sottosanto, who both got

time on the line last season. Also

joining the ranks are senior guard

Troy White and senior center Lucas

Michaels.

Dominic Dzioban, a sophomore,

also returns as the starting

varsity kicker.

On defense, East is returning

defensive end Devin O’Rourke, a

senior who committed in March to

play at Northwestern University.

“When you have not just an All-

Stater but an All-American there,

he’s a special kid to have,” Zvonar

said.

And in case teams try to run

away from O’Rourke, Zvonar said

returning seniors Ben Ravetto,

Sam Broda and Jaden Hacha will

be there to clamp down the attack.

He also pointed to juniors Dylan

Photo submitted

Shelton, Mick Stewart and Jeremiah

Dawson as providing great

depth on the line.

At linebacker, Zvonar said senior

John Christensen will move

from the outside to the inside

position. Declan Carr, a senior,

emerged this summer at the strong

side, linebacker position.

At defensive back, Zvonar said

seniors Kwaku Appiah (corner),

Dugan Bolsoni (corner), Max Cesario

(safety), Brendan Gallagher

and Shea McGivern, and junior

Mike Manning are expected to

lead the way.

Heading into the season, the

Griffins are scheduled to play

six teams who had five or more

wins last year. In Week 1, they

will play Crete-Monee (8-3 last

season).

“They do a tremendous job, and

they are extremely dangerous,”

Zvonar said of Crete-Monee.

“We’re going to have to be ready

off the bat, or they are going to

come over here and knock us off.

Rob Zvonar

We’re excited about the challenge.”

Zvonar said the team has put in

the work this offseason, and he is

excited to see the Griffins play.

Team: Lincoln-Way East

Years coached for the team: 16

Last regular season record: 7-2

What is your favorite play to run?

I coach defense, so my favorite play is a

sack. Offensively, I think we like to be a physical

team, so [we like to run] off-tackle power.

What phase of football is your speciality?

Whether it’s my specialty or not, I’ve pretty

much always been and have coached linebacker.

It’s a position I enjoy the most and know the

best. I’ve been fortunate enough to have some

great [linebackers] at Lincoln-Way East.

What is a team motto?

I think a slogan or a motto that we’ve always

had in our program was, we talk about “one

heartbeat” and then “winning with character.”

“One heartbeat” just symbolizes doing things

with unity, doing things as a football family,

doing them together and have each other’s

back. “Winning with integrity” and “winning

with character” has always been a motto of

ours. We want to try our very best to do things

the right way and not take shortcuts.

LW Central looks to experience, leadership to guide state-bound hopes

Jason Maholy

Freelance Reporter

By most standards, the

Lincoln-Way Central football

program had an outstanding

season in 2016.

The Knights finished 7-4,

scored a season-defining

victory over perennial Class

8A powerhouse Bolingbrook

and advanced to the second

round of the playoffs for the

first time in 12 years.

But to the guys in the

locker room, the campaign

ended not only prematurely

but also unexpectedly. No

one would call the season

disappointing, but in the

end the youths who shed

their blood, sweat and tears

to bring Central back to relevance

failed to live up to

their own expectations.

They knew the program’s

recent history had been average,

at best, and their goal

was not merely to rise above

mediocrity; it was to bring

home a state title.

Now, with the taste of success

still fresh on their lips

from a year ago, and several

core players returning, thirdyear

coach Jeremy Cordell’s

squad has boldly declared

2017 “Mission NIU.”

The Knights are poised

and ready, chomping at the

bit to build on what they accomplished

last season. That

has been the collective state

of mind since their secondround

playoff loss to Rolling

Meadows last October.

“From the moment we

lost, they’ve wanted to get

back to work,” Cordell said.

“They wanted to get back at

it, and I mean right away.”

Gone from last year’s

offense are fullback Nico

Muto, quarterback Hunter

Campbell, and standout offensive

linemen Eric Hypke

and Joe Dunlap.

The Knights return seven

starters: fullback Mike Morgan;

dynamic playmaker

Matt Pollack; wide receiver

Pott; and linemen Nolan

Nelson, Dan Jones and Joe

Fulkerson.

Pollack, who lines up at

running back, gained more

than 1,500 yards from scrimmage

last season during his

breakout junior year.

“He’s a special athlete,”

Cordell said of Pollack.

“He’s a hard worker, loves

the game. And whatever you

need him to do, he’ll do it.”

Pollack said last year’s

team did not expect to lose

in the second round of the

playoffs, and the disappointment

has motivated them

even more heading into the

2017 season.

“I think it made us very

hungry, knowing that last

year we [were eliminated]

when we should have kept

going,” Pollack said. “We’ve

got a lot of returning guys, so

we have a lot of confidence

and a lot of experience that I

think will help us a lot.

“We’re going to score a lot

Jason Maholy/22nd Century Media

of points with a lot of different

players.”

Several players who saw

significant time on the field

and filled key roles in 2016

— including running backs

Mike Gossage and Zach

Stoklosa — are expected to

contribute to the cause. Senior

center Rian Nealon, and

junior guards Drew Parrish

and Lucas Korte will see

time in the trenches.

Sam Pipiras will take over

under center. The key for the

Knights will be his leadership

and making good decisions.

“He’s tall, he’s long, has

a strong arm and throws

the ball well,” Cordell said.

“With him it’s just, ‘Now,

you’re the guy,’ which happens

at every school. Maybe

as a junior you didn’t get the

reps and now you’re the guy,

and he’s worked very hard in

the offseason to put himself

in position to succeed.”

Pipiras said he is excited

about taking the reins of a

potentially high-powered offense.

“The talent on our team,

the weapons we have, we

have so many options that it

takes the pressure off me,”

he said. “The talents all compliment

each other, it’s not a

one-man show.”

Central also will field an

experienced and talented

prevention corps, led by

senior linebackers Nick

DeGregorio and Matt Granberry,

and junior safety Gabe

Meyers. Three other starting

linebackers from last year’s

team will return. The front

three will be new, but senior

defensive ends Andrew Folgers

and Mark O’Reilly saw

Just to run the ball. We like running the

Which phase of football is your specialty?

I was a varsity defensive coordinator for

11 years. I love the game planning behind

it. I love just the nature of it, the attack style

of it.

What is one team you are you looking

forward to playing?

I know this is going to sound very cliché,

but we’re going to take one game at a time.

Our whole program motto is being 1-0, so

we’re just going to approach Week 1, and

Cordell said he believes

the team’s experience will

be a major factor in the

Knights’ favor.

“We’re a year older, a year

smarter, and we’re better

now because we have these

guys who have gone through

that, and we can really fine

tune the smaller things instead

of trying to learn on the

Experienced defense pairs with dynamic offense for Warriors

James Sanchez, Editor

Coaching words of wisdom

like “finish strong” or

“play all 48 minutes” go

without saying for Lincoln-

Way West’s returning varsity

members.

Having lived through the

tribulations of last season’s

disappointing second half is

enough of a reminder.

In its first season in Class

7A, West started the year by

winning four straight before

finishing the regular season

1-4 — two of those losses

given up late in games.

From what was a possibility

of a high seed and hosting its

own playoff game at midseason

turned into the Warriors

being on the bubble with a

5-4 record entering the playoffs.

They barely made the

round of 32.

Their reward? A date with

eventual state champion

East St. Louis.

Last fall was a learning

experience, to say the least,

and now the Warriors want

to make sure it does not happen

again.

“[Last year] definitely

gave us a lot of motivation

coming into the offseason,”

senior linebacker Ryan Robbins

said. “We started off

this summer knowing what

we wanted to do. Starting

4-0 was good, but we want

that good season overall.”

Last year was West’s first

time as a bubble team, after

comfortably making the

playoffs six straight years

prior with at least seven

wins or more. It will have to

bounce back in 2017 without

any returning full-time starters

on offense, as well as

losing the school’s all-time

sacks leader, Trey Telez, to

graduation.

Several returners made

spot starts, including new

quarterback Anthony Senerchia.

He filled in Week 4

against Stagg and threw a

game-winning touchdown

with less than 2 minutes and

30 seconds left, when it was

deadlocked at 0-0 up to that

point.

“It definitely gave me a

feel of what the varsity level

was about,” Senerchia said.

“It helped me progress, because

it kind of gave me a

jump-start.”

The senior quarterback

will lead an offense unlike it

has had in the past. No more

is a team tailored by a stout

ground attack that bludgeons

defenses behind 270-plus

pound, All-State linemen

Justin Witt and Bryan Brokop,

and All-State Special

Mention Nate Henry, which

led the team to the Class

5A championship game two

years ago.

With a more undersized

offensive line, speed and

athleticism at the skill positions,

and Senerchia being an

accurate pocket passer, head

coach Dave Ernst will tweak

his offense but maintain the

physicality for which West is

known.

“We have more running

backs, more receivers than

we’ve had in the past, and

they have a high skill level,

so we’re going to be a little

different in that regard,”

Ernst said.

Juniors Donte Barber, Anthony

Izzarelli and sophomore

Caleb Marconi will all

share time in the backfield.

Senior Alex Croft made big

strides from last season and

will pioneer the pass catchers,

which include tight end

Evan Weygandt, who grew

4 inches and gained roughly

20 pounds from a year ago.

Junior Nate Mahoney will

lead the offensive line. He

started five games before

suffering a season-ending

injury.

To back up the developing

offense, Ernst moved offensive

contributors Kevin Davis

and Robbins on the other

side to linebacker to fill

starting front seven to graduation.

Telez’s little brother

Jordan returns for edgerushing

duties, along with

Nick Skentzos, who earned

significant time on the interior

line.

Fortunately, in the back

end, all of the secondary

is returning, most notably

three-year starters Matt

Murphy and Jake Price, to

go along with Anthony Lullo

and Hunter Valentine.

It will be a veteran-led

defense, compared to the

offense, but Robbins said

the young players’ presence

is incomparable to previous

seasons.

“They’re hungry; they

want to play; and they bring

an energy that’s kind of unequal

to anything we’ve ever

had before,” he said.

Dave Ernst

Team: Lincoln-Way West High School

Years coaching the team: 4

2016 regular season record: 5-4

What is your favorite play to run?

My favorite play is power. I just think that it’s everything

football is supposed to be. It’s a physically

tough play. It’s violent and it’s physical. It’s a tough

play; it’s a man’s play. It’s an old-school play, and I

think it’s everything football should be.

What is one team you are looking forward to

playing?

I just want to get the season started, really. I know

we open up at Proviso West, and that’s really the one

I’m looking forward to and to just get the season

started and get the games going.

What is a team motto?

Our goal every season — I think we’re a little different

than a lot of people — is to play 14 and win

the last [game]. Which puts you in the state championship

game. Two years ago, we were fortunate

enough to get to the state championship game. We

lost, so we haven’t achieved that goal yet, but it’s

something we strive to do every year.

Ernst agreed, noting this

summer’s two-a-days were

the most fun he’s had in a long

time. The hope is that these

positive signs will not elicit

just a fast start but seasonlong

success this time around.

“We didn’t have one issue

the whole time,” Ernst said of

the summer. “They all work

hard; they all do whatever’s

asked of them; they’re all

great kids. We got better every

day. It was a lot of fun.”

Providence eager to take on tough schedule

Chris Walker, Freelance Reporter

Providence Catholic is to open the season by

making the long drive down Interstate 55 to face

defending Class 7A champion East St. Louis.

The following week, the Celtics are to host St.

John Vianney from Missouri, which also won a

state title a season ago.

Then, they jump right into the Chicago Catholic

Conference Blue Division, including a game

against Class 8A runner-up Loyola Academy in

Week 8.

It is never easy for the Celtics, but as 10-time

state champions themselves, they would have it no

other way — although they are as antsy as ever to

get back to the playoffs after falling short the past

two seasons.

“Those first two teams being state champs are

only going to make us better, but they put us in

almost a situation that they’re must-win games,”

Celtics coach Mark Coglianese said. “Heading to

St. Louis will be a tough challenge, but if we can

get a big win, that could catapult us to big things

down the road.”

Tough losses to St. Rita and Fenwick ended up

crushing Providence’s hopes of making the playoffs

in 2016, but one of its biggest positives was

how it finished. The Celtics beat Mt. Carmel in

Week 9 to keep the Caravan out of the playoffs for

the first time since 1985.

“That was a huge momentum swing, and we

want to keep the intensity from that game all season,”

senior De’Shon Gavin said. “We’re not taking

anything for granted, especially us seniors. The

seniors are looking really good and poised after a

great summer and we’re ready to finish it, and our

juniors and some sophomores have been impressive.”

Providence’s roster is smaller than it has been the

past, which is one of the team’s biggest concerns.

“They key is staying healthy, because we’re not

real deep,” Coglianese said. “We have a lot of quality

players, but the numbers are low so we can’t

afford to lose many guys. Lots of guys are going

to see both sides of the ball. ... It’s something we

have to do.”

An experienced offensive line will look to provide

sufficient time and blocking for an offense that

likely will rotate three or four guys in the backfield.

What is a favorite moment during your

I guess there are a couple. When I first
