The Indians are led by senior quarterback Mitch Brozovich (above). The 6' 3'', 180-pound captain scored on a 41-yard keeper against Glenbrook South in last year's opener. Brozovich led Minooka's ground game that night with 89 yards on 12 carries in a 38-14 loss to the Titans.
Minooka's 2009 season ended well, however, as the Indians finished 8-3 overall. After beating Edwardsville, 44-25, in the first round of the playoffs, Minooka fell to East St. Louis, 48-20. The Flyers went on to lose in the semifinals to the eventual class 7A champs, Wheaton-Warrenville South, 34-15.
After the loss to East St. Louis, head coach Bert Kooi (can anyone help me with that pronunciation?) said, "Many people probably thought we would win two or three games this season."
GBS graduated a number of seniors last year and will have to be on their game tonight in Minooka.
