Coach Big Pete's Sunday Conclusion For Week 3 IHSA Football 2023 Season - Highlights & Awards

What was that, we got more questions added than answers. Lake Zurich takes the lead in the NSC, and DGN proves to be a major contender in the WSC. Maine West & Montini continues to a magical season of 3-0. Sandwich, Lincoln Way Central, Normal, West Aurora, Wheaton Academy, Lincoln Park, Charleston are now at a shockingly 3-0. Joliet West, Grant, Dwight pulls off the shockers. Lockport, Sandwich, Central (Burlington), Wheaton North, Providence Catholic, Sesser-Valier, Athens, Geneseo, Forreston, Huntley get the big-time wins. Lena-Winslow, Rochester, Lincoln Way East, Loyola, Mount Carmel, Kankakee, Pana, York keep winning and look to be beasts in the coming weeks.

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. This Wednesday, Deep Dish Football IHSA Poll Rankings come out....
