Deep Dish Football Playoff OT Game Of The Week Coal City vs Wheaton Academy Class 4A Round 1 Preview

So this is an intriguing matchup in my eyes for the 4A first round. We got ourselves an on & off Coal City team that has lost tough games to some major teams this season but finished strong with a win again Streator. Going against a huge dark horse of a 4A team in Wheaton Academy with a 7-2 record and a dynamic offense. You would think that this is automatic blowout but not so fast people. If Coal City can find a way to turn it on and limit that offense they could be a serious team in 4A. This will be a huge test for Wheaton Academy facing a highly disciplined team in Coal City. Key matchup for me is how does Wheaton Academy defense stop that Coaler offense. This could prove to be a big time matchup in the 4A Class.


Coal City 6-3

Head Coach Francis Loughran

HUGE WINS: Bishop Mac, Lisle, Peotone

Key Players: Brady Best, Nick Seplak, Keegan Crater, Aydan Murphey, Nick Latta

Coal City will always be Coal City... Two way athletes with great sense of discipline that play together as one team

Wheaton Academy 7-2

Head Coach Jim Johanik

HUGE WINS: Aurora Christian, Bishop Mac

KEY PLAYERS: Eddie Kasper, David Dorn, Peter Johanik, Breck Peacock, Brandon Kiebles, Belay Brummel, Ethan Brunner, Liam White

Wheaton Academy looked great this season and a lot of people had them at were they are right now. They fought a good game with ICCP but lost a tough one. Wheaton Academy starts and ends with David Dorn no doubt about it.
