    Life on the bubble can be complicated Oct 24, 2013 12:00 AM
    Many football teams already know they’ll be in the playoffs while many more teams know they won’t. What about the tweeners?

  • Just kickin’ it at the halfway point Oct 3, 2013 12:00 AM
    Halfway home means different things to different teams. For football teams with glowing potential, you definitely don’t want to be halfway home after Week 5.

    With the school year nearly over, it seems like only yesterday we were watching games in bitterly cold wintry weather. Oh...wait. That was yesterday. Bad spring weather jokes aside, and without further delay, the Daily Herald tradition continues of chronologically presenting the top 10 moments of the school year in DuPage County boys athletics.
