Frankfort families celebrate

summer at Party in the Park

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

It was an evening filled

with flying frisbees,

bounce house jumping

and music provided by

DJ Keith Wallace — who

also serves as the executive

director of the Lincolnway

Special Recreation

Association.

The Frankfort Park

District’s second Party in

the Park of the year, held

at Heritage Knolls Park,

brought families together

for a night of games

and activities. The series

kicked off in June with

the “Fortnite Dance into

Summer” event, and a

third party, “Dog Days of

Summer,” is scheduled for

Aug. 12 at Jackson Creek

Park.

“Tonight is about

awareness,” said Karyn

Reczek, LWSRA marketing,

fundraising and outreach

coordinator. “We

go to different parks and

throw a pop-up party. It’s

about getting people out

into the parks. The Frankfort

Park District hosts

these events, so it gets

moved around the district.

We’re in different parks

throughout Frankfort.”

Along with the LWS-

RA, Corona Realty Group

and Riverside Health Care

helped sponsor the party,

which had a Crosstown

Classic theme.

“We do three of these

a year,” said Gina Hassett,

Frankfort Park District

executive director.

“We try and keep them

the second Monday of the

month. We were here last

year at Heritage Knolls,

but we just replaced the

‘Never Back Down’ toy drive returns for 11th year

Nuria Mathog, Editor

For more than a decade,

Frankfort residents

John and Jill Duggan have

been making a difference

in the lives of young cancer

patients — a way of

continuing to honor their

son Sean, who lost his

battle to rhabdoid cancer

in 2009.

Each year, the Sean

Duggan Foundation hosts

the “Never Back Down”

toy drive, which collects

donated toys and delivers

them to oncology patients

at Ann & Robert H. Lurie

Children’s Hospital in

Chicago.

“At some point before

Sean passed away, he

made me promise that I

would always help kids

that had cancer,” Jill Duggan

said. “This is what

my husband and I came

up with, and this is what

we’re going to continue

doing.”

This year, toys can be

donated through Monday,

Aug. 5, and the donations

will be dropped off at the

hospital on Aug. 7, Sean’s

21st birthday.

“There’s children that

are there that are anywhere

from infants to 18

years old, so a lot of people

like to get Barbies and

trucks and stuff like that,”

Jill Duggan said. “But we

do accept rattles, little

toys for babies and also

gift cards, which are really

good for the older kids.”

Jill Duggan said she

hopes the foundation receives

at least 1,000 toys

this year. Since the toy

drive was first launched,

community members have

donated more than 10,000

toys to the cause.

Toys can be dropped

off at several locations

throughout Chicagoland:

Peace Community

Church, 21300 S. La-

Grange Road in Frankfort;

Tribes Beer Company,

11120 Front St. in

Mokena; Tribes Alehouse

& Grill, 9501 W. 171st

St. in Tinley Park; Sizzles

Restaurant, 110 Mac-

Gregor Road in Lockport;

and Horse Thief Hollow

Craft Brewery, 10426 S.

Western Ave. in Chicago.

Next year, the Duggans’

teenage children

—15-year-old daughter

Abbey and 14-year-old

son Aidan — will be in

charge of running the toy

drive, with some help

“We’re also honored to

tell residents about Lincolnway

Special Rec and

tell them what services

we offer,” Reczek said.

“There are a lot of people

who still don’t know who

we are. Everybody knows

somebody with special

needs. We want them to

tell their special someone

who Lincolnway Special

Rec is and what they can

do and how they can get

the toys and all that. So,

the goal eventually is for

them to take over.”

Jill Duggan added she

wanted to thank the community

for the support the

involved in our district.”

According to the organization’s

website, the

LWSRA offers a wide variety

of programs, including

participation in Special

Olympics Illinois, as

well as social programs,

childrens programs and

special events and trips.

State Rep. McDermed

announces retirement

Staff Report

State Rep. Margo McDermed announced

through a press release July 10

that she would not be seeking reelection

in November 2020.

“If I were to win reelection next year, I

would turn 70 years old shortly after being

sworn in,” the statement read. “After

30 years as a corporate lawyer, followed

by 14 years as an elected official, it’s time

to retire again.”

After finishing her corporate career in

2006, McDermed was elected to a series

of offices including Frankfort Township

Clerk, Will County Board and finally as

State Representative for the 37th District,

which covers portions of Mokena, Frankfort

and New Lenox.

“It has been an honor to serve and get to

know the residents of the 37th District,”

McDermed wrote in her announcement.

“I will continue to call it home and be its

staunch advocate, but the time has come

for me to take a step back. After serving

out my current term that ends in January

2021, I plan to travel, quilt, volunteer

and spend more time with my two granddaughters

and all my family.”

Police reports

Frankfort gas station allegedly burglarized

Miscellaneous food

items reportedly were

stolen July 7 from a

Speedway Gas Station in

Frankfort, according to

the Frankfort Police Department.

According to Frankfort

Deputy Police Chief

Kevin Keegan, officers

were dispatched to the

gas station, located at

22305 S. Center Road,

following a report of an

audible alarm with intrusion.

Dispatch informed

the responding officers

the alarm company had

observed three male subjects

break the glass of

the front door and enter

the establishment.

Officers were also informed

that the men

matched the description

of subjects suspected of

committing a similar offense

in a neighboring jurisdiction

approximately

20 minutes prior to the

burglary, Keegan said.

Police later learned the

vehicle the subjects were

using was stolen out of

Calumet City, he added.

Keegan said a police

department in Indiana

later contacted the Frankfort

Police Department to

inform officers the three

subjects had been arrested

for similar offenses

in their jurisdiction, adding

Frankfort police had

some evidence from the

alleged burglary matching

the suspects taken

into custody.

“We are still putting

the investigation together

to present to the Will

County State’s Attorney

for possible charges,”

Keegan said.

July 2

• Unsecured vehicles in

a driveway in the 900

block of Troon Trail reportedly

were entered.

No items were reported

missing.

you wish your school had?

I think it has mostly everything

we need.

What’s your morning

routine?

I wake up at 5:40 a.m.,

wash my face and brush

my teeth, get dressed, eat

and wait either for one of

my parents to drive me and

my brother to jazz band or

wait for my ride to band.

If you could change one

thing about school what

would it be?

I would make it so we

have an actual advisory

time or study hall instead

of more work.

What’s your best memory

from school?

Walking to Meatheads

or Panera after school on

Fridays.

Standout Student is a weekly

feature in The Station.

Nominations come from

Frankfort schools.

Sink’s Shots

Frankfort resident Dale Sink snapped this image of a turtle.

“My neighbor Dennis knocked on my door a few days

ago and thought, as ‘the photographer,’ I might be

interested in something he saw on the ground outside his

back door,” he said. “It was this unique turtle which had

evidently come up out of the creek near our back yard.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Residents ‘hurt’ by

Confederate group in

Fourth of July event speak

out

Concerns from residents

regarding the participation

of a pro-Confederacy

group in Mokena’s Fourth

of July festivities was top

of mind July 8, during the

Village Board of Trustees

meeting.

Mokena residents and

members of the Southwest

Broker - Management Team

“10”

Suburban Activists spoke

during the public comment

portion of the meeting to

register their complaints

and ask Village officials

for answers — as well as

action. This came after

the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry

group participated in the

Village’s Independence

Day festivities.

Bill Walsh detailed his

family’s deep roots in the

military and said he was

“hurt” by the inclusion of

the pro-Confederacy group.

“I’m hurt by a number of

different things because the

history of the Confederacy

is they were anti-black,

anti-Jew and anti-Catholic,”

Walsh said. “The neo-

Confederates will add antibrown

and anti-Muslim to

that group. This is really a

disgusting group. I have no

problems with Confederate

cemeteries and appropriate

statues honoring the passing

of a fellow person. But

we have no business honoring

basically what I call a

treasonous group of people

who wanted to secede from

the union. I’m hurt by it.”

Later, during his comments

to the Village Board,

Fleischer addressed the

Fourth of July concerns.

Fleischer said “the Village

of Mokena has never

and will never condone action

that threatens the safety

of our residents.”

“Further, as the Village’s

motto says — ‘Pleasant living

through planned progress’

— [that] requires all

of us, elected officials and

residents alike, to work

together when there is an

issue that could interfere

with our pleasant living or

planned progress,” he said.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Say ‘Aloha’ to the return of

Tinley’s block party

Tinley Park will celebrate

its 21st annual Block

Party from noon to 7 p.m.

Sunday, July 21. This

year’s theme is tropical,

and will continue to be for

the following years.

entertainment along Oak

Park Avenue from 171st to

Hickory streets. Residents

Station. Food and drinks

can be purchased with cash.

There will be two stages,

one to the south and one

to the north. The concerts

will begin at noon with The

Walk-ins on the south stage

and South of Disorder on

the north stage. The Walkins

are a local Tinley band

made up of teachers who

play a variety of music, and

the South of Disorder play

music inspired by Jimmy

Buffett.

The band Johnny

Russler, a tropical-sounding

artist, will perform at

4 p.m. on the south stage

– while Arra, a classic rock

band, plays on the north

stage. Among the crowd

there will be soloist, duos

and DJs set up to play in

between the main stage

acts.

There will be two areas

include bumper cars, inflatables

and mini golf. Starting

From the Editor

Continuing a community tradition

nuria mathog

Editor

Each year, we highlight

the Sean Duggan

Foundation’s

“Never Back Down” toy

drive, held in memory of

Frankfort resident Sean

Duggan, who died in

2009.

Through the annual toy

drive, oncology patients

at Ann & Robert H. Lurie

Children’s Hospital of

Chicago receive toys

donated by community

members on Aug. 7,

Sean’s birthday. Frankfort

residents John and Jill

Duggan have been in

charge of the drive for

more than a decade, and

their teenage son and

daughter plan to take over

the toy drive next year,

continuing the family

tradition.

Jill Duggan recently

told The Station that each

drive typically brings

in between 800-1,000

toys — a testament to the

ongoing generosity of

Frankfort residents and

folks from surrounding

communities.

The toy drive is a

beautiful way of commemorating

Sean’s life

and bringing joy to children

and families facing

a challenging situations. I

encourage readers to drop

off a toy at one of the

five available locations

throughout Chicagoland

— including Peace

Community Church right

here in Frankfort — listed

in our article on Page 6

of this week’s issue. It’s

a small way to make a

difference, but it’s an incredibly

meaningful one

for its recipients.

Frankfort Bluegrass Festival

celebrates music, community

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

After winning the International

Bluegrass Music

Association award for

Bluegrass Event of the

Year in 2018, the Frankfort

Bluegrass Festival returned

to Breidert Green

Park with a lineup stacked

with global superstars,

award winners and local

legends in 2019.

On Saturday, July 14,

and Sunday, July 15, pickers

and grinners from all

around the world flocked

to Downtown Frankfort

for the free musical extravaganza.

Along with a

live music schedule featuring

the best in bluegrass

performing on two main

stages – and a pair of intimate

spaces – the event

also hosted a children’s activity

area, vendors, food

and more.

“We’re really excited to

be back out here for the

ninth annual Frankfort

Bluegrass Fest,” festival

co-organizer Steve Haberichter

said before welcoming

Dyer Switch Band to

the Breidert Green Stage.

“We’re happy we won the

IBMA event of the year

award in 2018. To be back

out here with all these

great bands and great people,

it’s an amazing event.”

Bartlett residents Dibbie

and Steven Love started

attending the festival for

the music three years ago,

but now the community

also motivates them to

“This is our third year,”

Dibbie Love said. “We

love the town. It’s a nice,

easy place to sit and listen.

It’s peaceful, quiet, entertaining.

The town is lovely,

absolutely gorgeous.

We enjoy the people, the

atmosphere. Everything is

perfect about it.”

Steven Love added,

“The music’s good and the

people are good.”

Folks who arrived early

on Saturday were treated

to good music from Truman’s

band known for creating

beautiful harmonies,

as the group opened up the

Breidert Green Stage. Joe

Jablonski, who performed

with the band, said the

Frankfort Bluegrass Festival

always has a great

crowd.

“It’s wonderful,”

Jablonski said. “It boosts

you up to see the people

‘Working: A Musical’ explores what ‘work’ means to others

T.J. Kremer III

Contributing Editor

If you’re going…

What: “Working: A

Musical”

When: 7:30 p.m. July

25-27; 2 p.m. July 28

Where: Curtain Call

Theatre, 11112 Front

St. in Mokena

Cost: $22

For more information…

Phone: (708) 607-

2281

Web: ccctheatre.com

Work: For many, it’s a

four-letter dirty word.

But when Studs Turkel

wrote his 1974 book,

“Working: People Talk

About What They Do All

Day and How They Feel

About What They Do,”

readers finally caught a

glimpse at what work

meant to different people

of different professions

from all walks of life.

Now, Curtain Call Theatre

is scheduled to perform

an adaptation of Terkel’s

book, “Working: A

Musical,” July 25-28.

The musical follows

more than 20 individuals

in different professions

as they explain the joys,

complications and hardships

involved in their

working lives through a

series of monologues and

songs.

Some of the characters

are humorous, such

as Candy Cottingham —

played by 15-year-old

Frankfort resident Olivia

Ernst — a fundraiser and

socialite who enjoys mingling

with others. Some

of the characters reveal

a darker side to their nature,

such as Edna Jaffe

— played by 15-year-old

Frankfort resident Sara

Glass — a publicist who

feels as though she’s spent

her career giving attention

to others and not enough

to herself, which leads her

down a path of depression

and substance abuse.

New Lenox resident Jacob

Dorris, 17, plays Frank

Decker, an interstate truck

driver who rarely gets to

see his family. Dorris said

the loneliness his character

experiences because of

The cast of Curtain Call Theatre’s production of

“Working: A Musical” pose during rehearsal. The show

is scheduled to run from July 25-28 at Curtain Call

Theatre in Mokena. Photo submitted

the amount of time that he

has to put in to his job to

provide for his family —

as is the case with people

in many professions —

was, “Emotionally striking.”

Joseph Kotze, a 15-yearold

from Frankfort, plays

ironworker Mike Dillard,

one of several blue-collar

professionals the musical

portrays.

“I feel like a big theme

of the show, and a big

theme the character is centered

around, is the idea

that being a laborer is sort

of a lower status, job-wise;

it’s a very blue-collar job,

and we just associate that

with having a lower status

in society,” Kotze said.

But, after going through

his character’s monologue,

Kotze realized

there was a lot about being

an ironworker that maybe

wasn’t quite as simple as

he first thought.

“There’s so much more

that people never really

take the time to recognize,”

Kotze said, which

leads to an “inability to

know what other people

go through, what other

people have to do to make

a living, to provide for

their family. That’s what

the show’s about: It’s

about understanding, relating.”

When Kaitlyn Lee, 16,

of Frankfort, was looking

for someone to relate

to for her character, union

organizer Ellen Epstein,

she found that she needed

to look in a different direction

to relate because she

noticed that a lot of the

people who had been suggested

to her to model her

character after were men.

“Ellen is doing a traditionally

guy’s job, and I

thought that was something

I could use because

it makes her want to work

even harder to prove that

she can do what any guy

can do,” Lee said.

Then there are the professions

that take on the

tasks that others seemingly

don’t want to do,

such as Theresa Liu, a

nanny played by 18-yearold

Mokena resident Eva

Comerford.

“[Liu] takes care of this

little girl from the time she

wakes up until the time

she goes to bed,” Comerford

said. “A nanny is

kind of like a kid’s parent;

if you have a nanny, then

you don’t know your kids

sometimes. … She views

[her job] as she’s replacing

the parents because

the parents aren’t getting

to know their child.”

And then there are those

at the far end of the spectrum:

the retirees.

New Lenox resident

Joshua Stefans plays the

role of Joe Zutty. Stefans

said he found that people

can sometimes lose part

of their identity after they

retire, as if they were, “being

forgotten.”

“I’ve noticed there’s

this issue out there where

when people retire they

just kind of waste away.

And it’s really sad,” Stefans

said. “Seeing that

side of things made me

embrace the role differently

in a positive way.”

ple. You just start talking

to somebody and the next

thing you know you’re

their friend. It’s a really

friendly atmosphere.”

The Breidert Green

Stage later featured performances

from Roland

White, John Jorgenson,

The HillBenders and more

on Saturday while the

Sunday schedule included

such acts as Special Consensus,

Barefoot Movement

and Blue Highway.

Across White Street, the

Prairie Park Stage – bigger

and better than ever

in 2019 – found Anderlik

Otto & Church, Junior

Sisk, The Grateful String

Band and River Valley

Rangers among its twoday

lineup.

Amanda Thompson, the

social media and vendor

coordinator for the festival,

explained that along

with the Breidert Green

Stage and Prairie Park

Stage, fans were also invited

to enjoy additional

performances on the Old

Plank Trail Beer Garden

Stage and connect with

artists on the brand new

Workshop Stage.

“We’ve had workshops,

but they’ve been on the

main stage,” Thompson

said. “The Workshop

Stage will be storytelling

and question and answer

situations, so it’s really

cool. You can be one-onone

with an artist. If you

play the banjo, you can sit

there and have a musician

teach you a song you’ve

always wanted to learn.”

The Frankfort Bluegrass

Festival was full of opportunities

to connect with

music. Fans also had the

option to enter a raffle to

win a new instrument.

“Bourgeois Guitars donated

a $5,600 guitar for

our guitar raffle this year,”

Thompson said. “It has a

special inlay of the state

of Illinois. It says, ‘Frankfort,

IL,’ and it’s beautiful.

They’re a great sponsor.

We also have second and

third prizes of a mandolin

from Eastman and a banjo

from Deering, which are

also awesome.”

Along with Bourgeois

Guitars, the Village of

Frankfort also served as a

Diamond Sponsor of the

event. Local businesses including

CD & ME, Down

Home Guitars, Ozinga and

many more also supported

the festival.

Thompson explained

that sponsors and volunteers

help to make the

Frankfort residents Kellen Law (left) and Gavin Major

blow bubbles in the children’s area at the Frankfort

Bluegrass Festival. Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

Frankfort Bluegrass Festival

a success every year.

“Thank you to all the

sponsors and volunteers,”

he said. “Everyone should

make sure to follow us on

our social medial and keep

coming out to enjoy the

music. We’ll see you at the

10th [festival] in 2020.”

The Dish

Flavor, homemade food key to Frankfort’s El Motor

Nuria Mathog, Contributing Editor

At El Motor Mexican Restaurant,

the focus is on family.

The four members of the Martinez

clan who run the Frankfort

restaurant are united by a common

goal: encouraging area

families to keep coming back for

flavorful Mexican cuisine made

from scratch.

“My dad has been cooking for

more than 25 years,” El Motor

owner Ernesto Martinez said.

“He’s always been our cook, so

about two years ago he wanted to

start up his own restaurant, and

we’ve all worked in the restaurant

industry — me and my sister

and my brother.”

Each member of the family

plays a different role at the restaurant,

Martinez said. His father,

Gabriel, cooks up the dishes

in the back, while his brother

Valentine and sister Gaby help

out as servers.

“We’ve always been familyoriented

people,” said Martinez,

who added that working with his

father and siblings has been a

great experience.

Frankfort’s location and business

community made it an ideal

site for the restaurant, Martinez

said.

“We knew people that started

businesses here,” Martinez said.

“And we live close, 10 to 15

minutes from here.”

El Motor offers traditional

Mexican staples such as tacos and

tostadas. Many of the items can be

purchased as standalone dishes,

as well as part of a dinner option

that includes rice and beans on the

side, and the restaurant also offers

specials such as half-price margaritas

from 4-8 p.m. Fridays.

The tacos, fajitas, burritos

and quesadillas are among the

restaurant’s most popular items,

Martinez said.

The fajitas de res ($12.95)

feature steak strips cooked with

tomatoes, green peppers and onions,

and are plated with rice,

beans and salad, then served

with the customer’s choice of

tortillas on the side.

“With every table, we bring out

our own chips and salsa,” Martinez

added. “We make our own

chips here, our hot and mild sauce

also, we make it here, and our

pico [de gallo]; it’s very popular.”

All of the items on the restaurant’s

menu are made from

scratch, including the drink selection,

which includes horchata,

a strawberry lemonade and agua

de jamaica, as well as two types

of licuados, or smoothies.

“We don’t make it with ice

cream,” Martinez said, of the

licuados. “We make it with real

strawberries or bananas, real

fruit, and then we mix it with ice

and milk.”

Martinez said the restaurant

began offering delivery services

through Doordash two months

ago.

“It’s really helping us grow

and gain new customers,” he

said.

Ultimately, Martinez said, the

restaurant’s goal is to create a

family-friendly environment.

“I like seeing that people love

build with people in Frankfort,

that we build with them.”

Going Places

Frankfort’s Malley using summer ball to prep for Evansville

JOE BIELANSKI, Editorial Intern

Frankfort resident and

Class of 2019 Marist graduate

Max Malley is extending

his playing career

beyond his hometown as

he looks forward to playing

baseball at the University

of Evansville.

Malley was a two-year

varsity player while at

Marist. During his career,

Malley put up numbers

that were a great help to

the team.

This spring, Malley hit

.377 with a home run, 25

RBI and 23 runs while

playing catcher and all

over the infield for the

RedHawks.

Malley chose Evansville

because he knew that the

coaches were the right fit

for him.

“I will enjoy being with

the coaches,” Malley said.

“When I visited, they had a

lot of energy and it was fun

to be around.”

The University of

Evansville is a Division

I school that competes in

the Missouri Valley Conference.

To prepare for the next

step, Malley is currently

playing in the Midwest

Collegiate League. The

MCL is a wooden bat summer

league for NCAA

athletes with remaining

colligate eligibility. Malley

plays for the Southland

Vikings out of Chicago

Heights.

He was named to the

MCL All-Star Game.

Malley said there is a

MILLAR/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

large difference in competition

between high school

and the MCL.

“It’s definitely faster,”

Malley said. “The game

and everything when it

flows, you need to get

ground balls and go to

first base. I’ve seen this

kind of pitching with

travel ball. I’ve seen upper

90’s, so I’m used to

the pitching aspect of it.”

While also getting used

to the faster pace, the summer

league is also an opportunity

to work on areas

that need improving.

“I’m always working on

my hitting,” Malley said.

“Just try to get better at

bats, and really read every

pitch. You have to take

one at a time, you can’t

rush and look ahead when

you’re trying to hit.”

The MCL is also an opportunity

for Malley to

improve on the physical

aspects of playing college

baseball.

“I have to get used to

nine innings of catching,”

Malley said. “That’s how

long the college game is,

and it’s a grind. I plan on

playing primarily catcher

once I get to college.”

While anxiously looking

ahead, Malley realizes that

he needs to stay in the present.

Everything he has done

has built up to this moment

and he doesn’t want to miss

a thing. He is ready for

whatever happens next, on

and off the field.

“I’m just grateful to play

college baseball,” Malley

said. “This is what every

athlete dreams of. I’m

also grateful to play in the

MCL and help myself get

prepared to play at the next

level. I’m ready for whatever

comes next in my

baseball career.”

Going Places is a weekly

summer series featuring area

athletes who are committed

to play sports in college.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Natalie Papa

Natalie Papa is a rising

sophomore on the

Lincoln-Way East golf

team. She won an IJGA

event July 10 at Ravisloe

Country Club.

How is golf going for

you this summer?

It’s been pretty good.

I’ve placed in three of the

six tournaments I have

played so far. I won overall

[at Ravisloe] with an

81, which is pretty good.

What was it like to be

a freshman on varsity

last year?

I felt a lot of pressure.

All the girls were either

juniors or seniors and I

thought Kaylie [White]

and I weren’t going to be

accepted. They were older

and could do things that

we couldn’t do.

When did you start

playing golf?

I started playing golf

when I was about 3. My

mom’s dad loved golf and

he passed away before I

was born. So, it was like

something for me to carry

on of him. I started to get

serious about it when I

shot in the 80’s when I was

in seventh grade. Now it’s

something I want to keep

advancing in.

Are you working

on anything specific

this summer for your

game?

Yes, my short game has

been something I’ve been

working on a lot at Mistwood.

They really help

you with your short game,

22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE PHOTO

chipping and putting, and

I’ve been hitting more

putts this summer.

Who is your favorite

athlete?

I like Rory McIlroy because

I like his swing and

I used to follow him a lot

when I was younger.

What do you enjoy

doing in your free

time?

I like hanging out with

my teammates from the

high school golf team. I

have a real close bond with

Grace Wilk and Kaylie

White, and I love hanging

out with them.

What’s the last thing

you binge watched?

I finished “Grey’s Anatomy”

for the seventh time

last week.

Any specific pregame

rituals?

Individually, I have to

listen to the same album.

I have been listening to

Tyler, the Creator before

every round. I feel that I

shoot better every time that

I listen to it. I have to wear

the same shoes and use the

same balls throughout the

tournament.

If you could meet

anyone from history,

who would it be?

Probably George Washington.

He was the first

president, so he had to deal

with all of the problems of

the beginning of America.

You’re only going to

be a sophomore, but

do you plan on playing

in college?

One of my long-term

goals is to play golf in college,

because I have been

playing for so long and

put so much time into it.

It’s something that I want

to do. My dream school is

UCLA. A couple of weeks

ago, I visited University of

Tampa and I fell in love

with the campus. It’s so

pretty, and they have such

a good golf team.

Baseball

Two Frankfort Eagles make

collegiate league All-Star Game

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Matt Blaney and Joey

Kendrick’s baseball careers

have veered in different

directions, but both are

playing for the Frankfort

Eagles this summer for the

same reason: love of the

game.

Blaney, a Lincoln-Way

East graduate, is preparing

for his junior season at Illinois

Wesleyan.

Kendrick, a Frankfort

native who attended Illinois

Lutheran High School

in Crete, is not playing

college baseball as he attends

Grand Valley State

in Michigan.

Still, he’s spending his

summer the same way he

has almost his entire life:

on the diamond.

“Every summer coming

out here is a lot of fun,”

Kendrick said. “You look

forward to it every year.

We’ve had some of this

team together for five or

six years, but this is our

second year in the collegiate

league.

“It’s great to have

friends come out here and

getting to play with them.

It’s a lot of fun.”

The Frankfort Eagles

play in the 15-team Southwest

Chicago Inter-League

Association Collegiate

League. They are coached

by Joey Kendrick’s father,

Scott.

The team is made up of

players from mixed circumstances.

Some, like

Blaney, are getting in work

before returning to their

college teams. Some play

for their club teams in college,

and some only play

competitively in the summer.

Lincoln-Way East graduate Matt Blaney (left) and

Frankfort native Joey Kendrick are starring on the

Frankfort Eagles in the SWILA Collegiate League.

STEVE MILLAR/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

“I joined mid-summer

last year, met all of the

dudes and had a lot of fun

with them,” Blaney said.

“I decided to come back

again. It’s a really fun team

to play with.”

Blaney and Kendrick

represented the Eagles

in the SWILA All-Star

Game, which was played

at DuPage Medical Group

Field, home of the Joliet

Slammers.

Kendrick hit .482 over

the team’s first 21 games

with two homers and 17

RBI. He went 1-for-2 in

the All-Star Game.

“It’s always nice getting

to go down there and play

at that field,” he said. “It’s

a nice field.”

Through 21 games,

Blaney was 3-1 with two

saves and 38 strikeouts

in 21 innings. In the All-

Star Game, he pitched

two scoreless innings and

struck out four.

Blaney started his collegiate

career at the University

of Texas-Dallas

before transferring to Illinois

Wesleyan, where he

became a regular in the

bullpen this spring.

“I’m back playing

closer to home, get to

see family and friends

more, so that’s a bonus,”

Blaney said. “In the bullpen

for Illinois Wesleyan,

whatever role the coaches

needed me in, I was able

to do.

“I’ve talked it over with

my coaches to see what

they want me to work on

this summer. I’ve been

working a lot on my twoseam

fastball, trying to get

some more movement on

it.”

In the end, though,

Blaney’s ultimate goal for

the summer is the same as

Kendrick’s.

“The main thing, though,

is just to come out here and

have fun,” he said.

Senior Quinn looks to seize opportunity to start for Griffins

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Kyle Quinn has waited

for his turn to take the

reins of the Lincoln-Way

East offense.

After backing up Jack

Baltz last season, Quinn is

getting his chance to earn

the Griffins’ starting quarterback

spot this fall.

“You have to stay

humble and determined,”

Quinn said. “Once you

have your shot, you have

to take that opportunity

and go with it.

“I looked up to Jack

Baltz. Everything he

taught me, I’m going to

use this season. I learned

a lot from him and I’m

thankful for that.”

East coach Rob Zvonar

is confident in Quinn.

“Kyle’s our leader back

there,” Zvonar said. “He’s

paid his dues. By the end

of the year [last year], if

something happened to

Jack, we would have been

fine going with Kyle.

“We also have [senior

quarterback] Ty Slager

pushing Kyle and we’ll

have a package back there

for AJ [Henning] in the

wildcat.”

Quinn got his first varsity

experience last season

and worked closely in

practice with Baltz, who is

headed to Illinois State this

fall.

“It was a learning process,”

Quinn said. “It was

my first year on varsity and

I had to get used to it. The

speed obviously changed

from what I was seeing

sophomore and freshman

year.

Looking For A Fast Pitch

Softball Travel Program?

Consider an established one with

OVER 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

The New Lenox Power has its

own indoor training facility with

a full infield and 3 batting cages.

Our practices and home games

are held in New Lenox.

“You learn a lot about

the defenses, how they

move and how to read all

that. Everything goes faster

on the varsity level.”

With the Griffins routinely

blowing out opponents

in 2018, winning

by 30 points or more 10

times, Quinn played in six

games in mop-up duty.

He ran 13 times for 92

yards and a touchdown

and completed both his

pass attempts. Both passes

gained 15 yards, one going

for a touchdown in a Class

8A state quarterfinal rout

over Edwardsville.

That was the Griffins’

12th win in a row, but

it was their final one as

Loyola stunned them 24-

16 the following week in

the semifinals.

It’s that defeat that has

East extra fired up for this

fall.

“I know this is a big year

for all of us after what happened

last year at Loyola,”

Quinn said. “We’re all trying

to bounce back from

that and go even farther

this year. I’ve been working

really hard all offseason

to be ready to lead this

team.”

Griffins fans will likely

be excited to hear Zvonar

draw comparisons between

Quinn and Brendan

Morrissey, who quarterbacked

the Griffins to the

2017 state title with a 14-0

record.

Like Quinn, Morrissey

had to wait until his senior

year to start at quarterback.

“Kyle’s not as big and

physical as a runner as

Brendan was, but he can

beat you with his feet,”

Zvonar said. “He’s got a

good arm, but he’s going

to be just as much of a

threat with his legs.”

Quinn will certainly not

be lacking playmakers

around him.

Henning, the state’s top

recruit who recently committed

to Michigan, is a

threat to score any time

he touches the ball and

can make plays out of the

backfield or as a receiver.

Senior Devon Williams

ran for over 1,000 yards

last season and junior running

back/receiver Jamal

Johnson flashed his potential

at the end of the 2018

season and is already receiving

plenty of Division

I looks.

“As the field general

of this team, I just feel

like I have a lot of great

weapons to use,” Quinn

said. “AJ, Jamal, Devon.

There’s some other guys

you may not have heard of,

but they’re going to step

up this year.”

Johnson said he’s developed

a rapport with Quinn,

though there is certainly

some adjusting in going

from a 6-foot-5 gunslinger

like Baltz to the 5-foot-10

Quinn.

“It’s different from having

Jack Baltz out there

throwing the ball 100

yards,” Johnson said. “I

really like playing with

Kyle, though. He can run.

He’s a dual threat.”

Zvonar said East may be

more of a run-first offense

as opposed to the passheavy

attack it presented

in 2018. Whatever the

case, opposing defenses

will have their hands full.

“There’s a lot of areas

teams are going to have to

try to cover with us,” he

said.

Quinn hopes to be one

of the players giving opponents

fits. While he knows

some may doubt his abilities

to fill Baltz’s shoes,

he’s used to being overlooked.

“I’m undersized, but I

have that underdog mentality,”

he said. “Whatever

the coaches ask me to do,

I’m able to do it.”

Baseball

LW East wins sectional, reaches summer state finals

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

STEVE MILLAR/22ND CENTURY

MEDIA

1st and 3

THREE PLAYERS WHO

HELPED LW EAST

BASEBALL REACH THE

SUMMER STATE FINALS

1. Cael Geijer

Geijer (above), a

rising senior, had

big hits throughout

regional and

sectional play. He

drove in five runs

in the regional final

win over Chicago

Christian and

knocked in two

in the sectional

championship

against LW West.

2. Nick Merganthaler

The Griffins’ leadoff

hitter set the table

for a prolific offense,

getting on base

often throughout

regional and

sectional play.

3. Tony Panzella

Panzella, a rising

junior with just one

game of varsity

experience, threw

four shutout innings

in the win over LW

West.

Though reaching the

summer state finals doesn’t

have the same feeling as

making it to state in the

spring, the thrill of competition

and the sense of

accomplishment were

definitely there for Lincoln-Way

East last week,

when the Griffins won the

Lockport Sectional title to

put themselves among the

final eight teams alive in

the Illinois High School

Baseball Coaches Association

summer playoffs.

A case in point: when

East walked off against

Sandburg with a 5-4 win

in eight innings on July 9,

the Griffins celebrated on

the field as if they had just

won a state title.

“We dogpiled out there,”

East coach Eric Brauer

said. “Everyone is aware

that these games aren’t as

important as the spring,

but when you win, you still

feel good about it. It’s still

meaningful. You know

it’s not the spring, but it’s

still competition. When

you win, you feel good.

We were down that whole

game against Sandburg

and came back. That was

really fun, it was exciting.”

That victory sent the

Griffins to the sectional

championship game,

where they demolished

district rival Lincoln-Way

West 10-0 in five innings

on July 10 to clinch their

trip to state.

the Lockport Sectional championship summer playoff

game July 10. Photos by Steve Millar/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

The regional and sectional

tournaments were

both double elimination,

but East did not need to

take advantage of the format,

sweeping through

them with a 6-0 record.

The Griffins opened sectional

play with a 5-3 win

over Lincoln-Way West on

July 8.

“Our confidence level

has been high,” rising junior

Tony Panzella said.

“We’re hitting the ball,

we’re doing everything

well. I think we’ll be fine.”

The Griffins were set to

open the eight-team, double-elimination

state tournament

on Monday, July

15 with a game against

Jacobs at Benedictine University

in Lisle. The state

tournament was scheduled

to run through Thursday,

July 18 with games at

Benedictine, North Central

College in Naperville

and Route 66 Stadium in

Joliet.

For a Lincoln-Way East

team that was stunned

in its playoff opener this

spring - the Griffins were

the top seed in their sectional

and fell 2-1 to 17thseeded

Romeoville - going

on a deep playoff run feels

good.

“After the unfortunate

loss in the spring, we’re

glad to bounce back on a

big level,” rising senior

Cael Geijer said.

Geijer drove in a pair of

runs in the championship

game win over Lincoln-

to get the first run,” Geijer

said. “It boosts your confidence

for the rest of the

game. We have to have the

mindset to jump on them

first.”

On a hot day, the Griffins

felt it especially important

to get off to a

good start. A Warriors win

would have forced a second,

winner-take-all game

between the two teams on

the same day.

“If we didn’t win the

first game, you’re staring

at being out here five

hours in 94 degrees,”

Brauer said. “It was definitely

good to play from

ahead. Our pitchers threw

a lot of strikes, our defense

did a nice job. It’s a really

nice recipe that generally

works.”

Rising junior Matt Michaels

cleared the bases

with a three-run triple to

make it 4-0.

The Griffins scored in

all five innings, pushing

across solo runs in the second

and fourth, and two

runs each in the third and

fifth. Dan DeCero, Alan

Cohen and Nick Merganthaler

all had RBI hits.

Panzella, meanwhile,

got the job done on the

mound, allowing just two

hits in four innings. Justin

Murray threw a scoreless

fifth inning.

“I let my defense play

behind me and do what

they needed to,” Panzella

said. “I just basically wanted

to throw strikes. It helps

a lot [getting an early lead]

because you know you can

give up runs, let them hit

the ball a little bit. You

don’t feel that much pressure.

Just throw strikes.”

LISTEN Up

“I’m undersized, but I have that underdog mentality. Whatever the coaches

ask me to do, I’m able to do it.”
