Deep Dish Football Tour 2021: Stop #1 Wheaton St. Francis - Spartan Powerhouse


By: Peter "Coach Big Pete" Leinweber


Head Coach Bob McMillen

6-0 Spring Season Record

NO IHSA PLAYOFFS IN 2020/2021




So great to be back on the road for this Summer Camp season. To think last year at this time we were waiting for the final word from the IHSA and IDPH on the fate of the 2020 season. First stop was Powerhouse Wheaton St. Francis, and I got to say if we had the playoffs last season no doubt in my mind they would have been state champs. In a matter of 4 years Coach McMillen has built this into one of the top programs in the Chicagoland area. McMillen has built a great coaching staff as well to help guide these young Spartans. Was very impressed with St. Francis DC Ron Griffin and his ability to get his kids to listen (if you ever coached defense its a pain in the butt). Overall was impressed with level of readiness of the Spartan Defense at such an early phase of camp. The main question will be the passing attack no doubt about it. Really see a breakout season for the St. Francis ground attack say 2-3 weeks in the season. St. Francis has the depth at key linemen spots on both side of the ball. If you have your big man situation handled like that it pretty much foreshadows a great season. Love the Spartan JV! Got to say was shocked at size of that JV line as well. I do not want to play this team for the upcoming years. For all the talk about the Spartans losing Rittenhouse, I have to say they got a great group of senior leaders for the Class of 2022 back.
