Plainfield North will travel to Glenbard West...

...this Saturday in the first round of the 7A playoffs. The Tigers (7-2) will be led by running back Kapri Bibbs (above), who has committed to Colorado State next year. The 5'10", 195-pound senior rushed for 2,560 yards on 282 carries this year. To give you some perspective, only seven running backs in the NFL carried the ball as many times in the 2009 regular season -- and that was in twice as many games. Oh, and Bibbs also scored 37 touchdowns.

But Glenbard West (8-1), last year's 7A runner-up, is known for its stingy defense. The Hilltoppers allowed fewer than ten points a game before last week's 31-13 debacle against Lyons. The upset was Glenbard West's first regular season loss since 2007 and knocked them from No. 2 in the Tribune rankings down to No. 12.

Next: Let's have a closer look at Glenbard West, shall we?
