Coach Big Pete's Sunday Conclusion For Week 1 IHSA Football 2023 Season - Highlights & Awards

Too much action this week not to love the game of football. Big upsets, last minute touchdowns, and good amount of questions answered. We had a historic Hail Mary win, young QBs make a name for themselves. Mount Carmel gets the historic win over East St. Louis in the historic IHSA matchup. So, let's review Week 1 2023 Kickoff weekend.

IHSA Football players make sure I have your game film - send VIA DM on Twitter or email Also make sure every Friday night after the game I get your stats (I'm looking for the IHSA Player of the Night). Please Coaches and Players make sure that I have your game film from that week so I can send it out. Week 4 on Wednesday, Deep Dish Football IHSA Poll Rankings come out.... So be prepared IHSA Football Family and get those angry emails ready!!!
