The Hit List 2006
The "Hit List" is a quick look at numbers and stats from around the world of Illinois High school football.
2 & Zero
Those are two very big numbers for Joliet (Township), who after going 0-9 in 2004 & 1-8 in 2005 has already doubled it's win total for the last 2 season. Add to that the fact that the Steelmen have also shut out both of their first two opponents Plainfield North & Rich East and the Steelmen's program could be on it's way to a dramtic turn around under new head coach Jason Aubry. For an extra twist of irony, the other high school in Joliet, Joliet Catholic, who's know for their football prowess, has started off the season 0-2.
There are about a dozen teams that haven't allowed a point so far in 2006, but mor eimpressive are the teams that have already passed the century mark when it comes to scoring. Out of the 4 schools that have scored over 100 points this year the most impressive may be Aledo, who's 131 points gives them a 65.5 per game average. While not quite as prolific, I'm sure any coach in the state would take Maroa
(M.-Forsyth) 116 points orDecatur (St. Teresa)
's 105 (St. Teresa has also shut out both of their opponents), but not look forward to facing either of those teams. Unfortunately both Maroa-Forsyth & St. Teresa will be doing just that as they meet this weekend at Maroa, (Fri 7 pm).
That's the new starting date for the Friday night game, now Thursday night game betweenChicago (Mt. Carmel)@New Lenox (Providence). There's really no special reason why the game was bumped up a day, unless of course you consider the fact that it will be the high school game of the week on ESPN's ESPNU channel. Check your local listing for what channel the game will be on.
