  • Twenty years later, Conant’s ’93-94 team still stands tall Mar 13, 2014 8:19 PM
    Stories of past glory often get embellished. The tales get taller as the years pass. So, in January when Michael Tierney got ready for the 20-year reunion for the best Conant’s boys basketball team in school history, his wife reacted with some skepticism. The best team ever? She didn’t believe it. Tierney said his wife ultimately came around to understand this wasn’t just any team. The 1993-94 Cougars were state-ranked, won 27 games and are the only ones in school history to make the boys basketball Elite Eight.

     
  • Daniels eager to take Christian Liberty football to the next level Feb 27, 2014 10:47 PM
    There is no question Dave Daniels still has plenty of drive for coaching football at age 55. Daniels is finally getting his start at leading a high school program at a time when a lot of head coaches are crossing or nearing the finish line. His drive to succeed is going to be crucial, since Daniels is taking over a Christian Liberty program that is still in relative infancy.

     
  • Crowded gyms, big games no excuse for herd mentality Feb 13, 2014 9:33 PM
    Unfortunately, as the intensity and magnitude of basketball games increase as the season winds down, so does the likelihood of hearing things spewed from crowds that make you wonder if some people think before they speak, er, shout. Sportsmanship statements that are announced to fans before games seem to have fallen on deaf ears about 4.3 seconds after the opening tip.

     
  • High school sports coverage? Frisk heads the class Jan 30, 2014 10:02 PM
    Bob Frik's ambition turned into a devotion to high school sports that continues to this day, so it's fitting that he’ll be recognized between the Hersey and Prospect boys and girls basketball games Friday as one of the inaugural winners of the Illinois High School Association’s Distinguished Media Service Award.

     
  • Williams, Sullivan paired for Hall of Fame honor Dec 19, 2013 10:57 PM
    Thinking alike about how basketball should be played was a big reason the coaching pairing of Bob Williams and Jim Sullivan was successful. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Williams and Sullivan have like-minded views about their induction into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in late April of 2014. To the point where their responses were eerily similar in separate conversations about their appreciation of the honor.

     
  • High schools take their title dreams to DeKalb Nov 29, 2013 5:35 PM
    Here's what to expect from the first-ever high school football championship games to be held at NIU.

     
  • Bongiorno accepts the challenge at Maine West Nov 21, 2013 9:41 AM
    Maine West's new basketball coach, John Bongiorno, is ready to jump into leading the program despite being hired relatively late, in August. That doesn't bother him - he's used to challenges.

     
  • Hands-off policy bringing basketball into a new era Nov 14, 2013 4:52 PM
    High school basketball officials are ready to do a lot more whistling while they’re working. And they’ll be ready for more hooting and hollering as players, coaches and fans get used to the emphasis from the NCAA and National Federation of State High School Associations to eliminate a lot of physical play and give players more offensive freedom of movement.

     
  • Von Schaumburg maintains a champion’s perspective on ALS Oct 24, 2013 3:12 PM
    Just two weeks before his 30th birthday, after trying to figure out why he was suddenly having trouble speaking, onetime Schaumburg football standout Eric Von Schaumburg learned he was linked with the man who proclaimed himself “the luckiest man on the face of the earth.” Before Friday's game against Palatine, the Saxons will honor his struggle and bring attention to fund-raising attempts through Von Schaumburg's Fight Like a Champion effort.

     
  • NFL defense latest to join Bullen’s football resume Oct 17, 2013 2:09 PM
    Charlie Bullen chuckled about his lofty status in the Fremd football record book when it came to chucking the football. “The key to that is not to throw a lot of passes,” Bullen laughed of ranking fifth in program history for single-game completion percentage at 85.7 in 2002 against Elk Grove. Now, Bullen’s job is to make sure some of the best quarterbacks on the planet — famed names such as Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger — don’t have the time to complete a large percentage of their passes. Bullen is in his second year with the defensive coaching staff of the Miami Dolphins and currently works with their defensive linemen.

     
  • Long, successful basketball road for Conant’s Hudson Sep 26, 2013 3:56 PM
    Mapquest’s directions put the trip from Conant High School to Ferris State University at 4 1-2 hours and nearly 270 miles. That would be a quick cruise to Big Rapids, Mich., for Robert Hudson considering all the time and effort that went into his obstacle-filled route of playing basketball in college.

     
  • Challenge hazing by doing something write Sep 19, 2013 10:08 PM
    Elliot Hopkins hopes he will see a day where hazing is finally razed from our society. “I’m forever optimistic that hazing can be ended,” Hopkins said, “and we can divert our energies to something more productive.” Until that time arrives, however, Hopkins isn’t going to stop trying to raise awareness about the damage inflicted from hazing. It’s a cause he’s been dedicated to in 21 years of working with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association.

     
  • Boggs’ journey can be a lesson to all Sep 5, 2013 5:23 PM
    Goals and dreams. Almost everyone has them. Young athletes should definitely have them. Taylor Boggs' story is one reason why.

     
  • Major development for Fremd product Tauchman Jun 15, 2013 1:31 AM
    Mike Tauchman hopes he is on a Rockie road toward a big-league baseball career. It is a path the former Fremd High School baseball and football star has pursued for years. And it took a turn in the right direction last week when Tauchman was chosen by the Colorado Rockies in the 10th round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft after a stellar four-year career at Bradley University.

     
  • It all adds up to Fivelson coaching at Conant Jun 8, 2013 8:14 PM
    Derek Fivelson is a numbers guy. It would figure since he teaches math and coaches the senior math team at Hoffman Estates High School. Fivelson has also been an adjunct math professor at Roosevelt University. But Fivelson wasn’t interested in any numbers games as he prepared for his first meeting with his new players Friday as Conant’s new varsity baseball coach.

     
  • School’s out — just in time for preparation season to begin Jun 6, 2013 7:19 PM
    The end of the school year marks a time to get refreshed for some - and a time to get refocused for others.

     
  • Cool finish to a tumultuous senior year for Prospect’s Smith May 23, 2013 3:11 PM
    Zach Smith was no different from many other high school athletes when he had to face the unfortunate reality he would be competing in a Prospect uniform for the last time Monday afternoon. What was different for Smith, however, was how fortunate he was to have one final opportunity to pitch for the Knights in their regional quarterfinal baseball loss at Lake Zurich. And how blessed the 6-foot-2½, 250-pound left-hander was to get the chances to put on his school’s football and baseball uniforms at all during his senior year.

     
  • Pitch-count math can get pretty complex May 16, 2013 7:01 PM
    Keeping track of how many times a pitcher has delivered during a game can be a good thing to know, but it's awfully hard to enforce firm limits, simply because every pitcher is different.

     
  • Football limits in Texas; spring sports snowed under in North Dakota May 2, 2013 10:37 PM
    A lot of the furor has subsided over a recent effort by members of the Illinois state legislature to place limits on the amount of constant contact in high school football practices. But don't start believing this is an issue which will quietly disappear around here. Especially since the one state almost synonymous with high school football is on the verge of enacting practice contact limitations. Nearly two weeks ago, the Texas University Interscholastic League's Medical Advisory Committee recommended a 90-minute limit on full-contact, game-speed practices in the regular season and postseason for its high school football programs. And the recommendation was unanimous.

     
  • Dick embraces challenge as Fremd’s next AD Apr 25, 2013 4:03 PM
    David Dick knows he will face all kinds of challenges when he officially takes over as Fremd High School's athletic director in July. One he'll face down the road is the potential for a house divided. Dick and his wife Jennifer have a daughter Rhiann (11 years old) and sons D.J. (9) and Darrin (5) who will eventually go to Palatine High School. "That should make for an interesting cross-town situation," David Dick said with a laugh of his kids who are all involved in sports. But that's a future "problem." Dick said his family is thrilled about his opportunity to lead an athletic department after more than 20 years as a coach and administrator at Barrington. Dick will replace Augie Fontanetta, who is moving up to oversee athletics for all five District 211 schools. Dick was the athletic director at Barrington Middle School for eight years and he also spent the last two years assisting in the high school's athletic department thanks to a plan by principal Steve McWilliams and athletic director Mike Obsuszt.
