Who are the Top Five...

...teams in Illinois high school football? First the news services:


1. Loyola
2. Sacred Heart-Griffin
3. Mount Carmel
4. Stevenson
5. Richards

Chicago Tribune

1. Stevenson
2. Loyola
3. Homewood-Flossmoor
4. Glenbard West
5. Mount Carmel


1. Loyola
2. Stevenson
3. Homewood-Flossmoor
4. Glenbard West
5. Cary-Grove

Why only five? That's all the teams I've seen so far:


1. Mount Carmel
This team GRADUATED a lot of guys?

2. Oak Park and River Forest
Lloyd Yates is awesome; defense needs to improve.

3. Glenbard West
Should be a high seed in 7A.

4. Lincoln-Way East
They'll be ready for the playoffs.

5. Wheaton Warrenville South
Need to find five victories between now and October 24.

This week: If all goes according to plan I'll see Stevenson at Homewood-Flossmoor on Friday night and Edwardsville at Loyola on Saturday. My backup is Carmel at Phillips on Saturday.
