Stevenson turns up the ‘D'
Nov 15, 2014 10:34 PM - It's easy to get swept up in Stevenson's offense. The high-scoring, pass-happy Patriots are fun to watch and feature some of the best athletes in Lake County, including two future Northwestern Wildcats. Wide receiver Cameron Green will be continuing his football career in Evanston while quarterback Willie Bourbon will be playing baseball there. With its stars shining bright all season, Stevenson ranked among the top scoring teams in the North Suburban Conference with 31.4 points per game. Meanwhile, without quite as much hype, its defense actually did one better, and led the entire league in points allowed with 11 per game. That stinginess was on display again on Saturday as the Stevenson defense put a chokehold on visiting New Trier, propelling the undefeated and top-seeded Patriots (12-0) to a 38-10 Class 8A quarterfinal victory that extends their playoff run to a semifinal date against No. 2 Glenbard West in Glen Ellyn next week.
