  • Grayslake North’s Russell catches a break with NIU Aug 14, 2013 6:57 PM
    If it meant catching on quickly at Northern Illinois University — and catching, period — Carl Russell was willing to receive, so to speak. So, yes, toss the recent Grayslake North graduate a catcher’s mitt. The sure-handed infielder will catch it, surely. All set on attending Carroll College in Waukesha, Wis., and playing shortstop for the Division III program, Russell got a pleasant surprise this summer while playing travel ball for coach Clay Kovac’s Kenosha Indians. The hard-hitting, speedy Russell caught the attention of Northern Illinois. The Huskies offered him a partial scholarship, and he accepted.

  • Vernon Hills’ Webb goes Green Jul 25, 2013 9:13 PM

Before heading to Tennessee this week to play basketball with her Illinois Elite AAU team in a tournament called Music City Madness, the Vernon Hills incoming senior sang the praises of Bowling Green State University in Ohio. A 6-footer in a power forward’s body who successfully transitioned temporarily to point guard for her high school team last winter, Webb verbally committed to the Falcons, who are a Mid-American Conference power.

  • Stevenson’s Novoselsky chooses Western Michigan Jul 19, 2013 10:48 PM
    The inevitable shoulder surgery can wait. And because new Western Michigan University football coach P.J. Fleck understands a tough kid’s tough spot, Zach Novoselsky decided he didn’t need to wait any longer to make a verbal commitment to the Mid-American Conference school. Stevenson’s thick offensive tackle became the second player from his high school team this week to accept a Division I football scholarship. Novoselsky will team with wide receiver/safety Matt Morrissey (Michigan State) this fall to give the Patriots a pair of D-I-bound seniors on the offensive side of the ball. Like Morrissey (son of Jim), Novoselsky’s dad, Brent, played in the NFL, including one season with the Bears.

  • Knigge’s next at Mundelein Apr 23, 2013 10:10 PM
    Mundelein's boys basketball program will need to be patient. Considering Dennis Kessel blessed us with Kyle, Perry Wilhelm so generously gave us Kyle, Brian and Brett, and Dick Knar granted us Dickie and Robert, the pressure is on Corey Knigge. Dads Kessel, Wilhelm and Knar — the Mustangs' last three coaches — all had athletic, talented, basketball-smart sons, with Kyle Kessel and Robert Knar the most famous of them all, scoring nearly 4,000 points between them. Corey Knigge, who was approved by Mundelein's school board Tuesday night as Dick Knar's successor as head boys coach, has no children. It's understandable. He married his bride, Megan, three weeks ago. "I held out for 41 years," Knigge said with a laugh.
