    Paul Parpet Sr. is in his first year coaching Lisle. Otto Zeman is in his second at Westmont. These old-schoolers are new to their respective programs so most of the rivalry heat in Friday’s ninth annual game for the Old Plank Road Trophy may come from the players. “I don’t know that much about it,” Parpet said. “I know that we play for it, the kids have talked about it.

Lisle won last year’s contest 28-0 to take a 6-2 lead in the game for the traveling trophy. Westmont last earned it with a 28-20 victory in 2011.
