Deep Dish Football Game of the Week

Rochester @ Sacred Heart Griffin

Week 7 IHSA Football

Head Coaches:

SHG Ken Leonard

Rochester Derek Leonard

Both Teams are 6-0

Leonard Bowl


This is the game of games in the great state of Illinois and I’ll fight anyone that says likewise about this game. This game represents what is best about Illinois football and what the fast and furious offense is all about. Copied by coaches all over the state and done sometimes wrong by coaches, you’ll get to see how this offense is when it’s done correctly. Both Coaching staffs from teams are hailed as the best staffs in the state of Illinois, never have I seen so much coaching talent in one game. The main the story line is that this the “Leonard Bowl”, father Ken facing off with his son Derek. Epic game is just more than those two again like I said this game is what makes IHSA football better. Any so called fan or expert of Illinois football should be at this game Friday night.
