I graduated from Joliet Catholic in 1984, the school is now referred to as Joliet Catholic Academy. Since the State of Illinois initiated high school football playoffs in 1974, Joliet Catholic has won 13 state championships and was runner-up another 4 times. The school also produced Tom Thayer (Chicago Bears), Coby Fleener, and Ty Isaac to name a few. Unfortunately, we also have to claim "Rudy" as an alum.

Unfortunately it will most likely be blue and gold..
|1 year 26 weeks ago||I believe his family actually resides||
in Shorewood, Illinois which is just wests of Joliet.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Is it a possibility||
he is being looked at as a potential wide reciever rather than a runningback? In high school he would occasionally line up as a reciever and appeared pretty well-suited for the position. I would be interested in hearing the opinions of some of the posters more skilled at talent evaluation.
Disclaimer: I have no scouting/coaching expertise.

Just kidding but I do love his video rants.

'bout to break into a candied bacon maple glazed. Woo Hoo!
|1 year 28 weeks ago||No||
|1 year 28 weeks ago||He attended high school in Joliet||
but his family resides in Naperville. Ann Arbor is still farther away. Another thing to consider, he was a high school teammate and is still friends with Josh Ferguson (Illinois RB). (Disclaimer, not a stalker, my nephew blocked for both of them on the same squad.)

If Kentucky looses and when Michigan wins, my boss (Kentucky alum) has agreed to give me his courtside seats for the Michigan/Louisville game! Lookin forward to a Sunday morning drive to nap town.

|2 years 30 weeks ago||reason number 147||
To bring back the old point system.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Hopefully Ferns has||
an XXXL Team 135 shirt in stock and ready for shipping.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Party or Beer for a month?||
Sounds like a win either way.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||I followed||
recruiting rather casually in 2008-9 . I remember stumbling across the blog at about the time we were in on Dee Hart. I would visit occasionally and became a regular during the coaching search that eventually landed us Coach Hoke. I am pretty sure it was the frequent flight tracker posts that got me hooked, but it was the TomVH insider information that got me to visit multiple times a day and finally start an account.

|2 years 38 weeks ago||What is this fancy||
"remote" contraption you speak of?
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Did ESPN||
have to promise a minimum of one Big East College Gameday as part of the deal as well?
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Not to be "that guy"||
but it was the Soviet Union, not just Russia. However, I completely agree with you that this victory was far from overated given the prior loss by the U.S and the political overtones at the time.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||I love to hear||
that both Ferns and Speight are active in reaching out to other recruiting targets. It really shows their high level of enthusiasm for the future of the class and the program in general.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Grilled cheese variant||
I like to make two sharp cheddar on sourdough grilled cheese and use them as the bun for a 1/3 lb angus burger with bacon and grilled onion.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||My secretary complain||
about how hard she has to work as I contemplate a second maple and candied bacon donut... YUM!
