@ Chicago (Hubbard) & Rock Island (Alleman)@Rock Island (H.S.)

Year in and year out there are two things we really appreciate here at IHSFW, a great band & a great stadium. Morgan park's band is one of the best in the state, if you haven't heard them play the theme from Sports Center you haven't felt the intensity that is high school football. Rock Island's Almquist Field, isn't the complete bowl stadium that it once was, but this beautiful horse shoe throw back to the days of leather helmets & little padding is one of the best places to see a game in Illinois, including college stadiums.
