DuPage Valley Conference 2022 Preview With Coach Big Pete - Naperville vs Everybody

Welcome back IHSA Football!!! As is every June conference previews and again please remember predictions and previews mean crap. High school football is the greatest thing because of pure parity. What is up last year could be down this year and what is down last year can up this year. ANYTHING AND I MEAN ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN IHSA FOOTBALL. Last year 2021 was pure anarchy and no one knew what was going on. Also, unlike some prep writers who take credit and copy and paste the coach's work off a crap team questionnaire I do my own work. Thank You, to the high school coaches that put the info up on HUDL and emailed me info as well. FULL CONFERENCE PREVIEW VIDEO ON THE BOTTOM


Well, this was a pure horse race last season and Naperville Central, Neuqua Valley, Naperville North battled till Week 8. Alot of people were surprised with the fact that Naperville Central competed and almost won DVC title. That was the only thing I got right about my predictions last season for the DuPage Valley Conference. Naperville teams represented well, but other dogs in the fight not so well. Metea Valley almost shocked people with a three-game winning streak. Waubonsie Valley and DeKalb sort of came out the gate disappointing and I'm sticking to my surprises this season. Now going onto this season, I see Neuqua Valley and Naperville North as the tops dogs of the conference and Naperville Central as the Challenger. DeKalb and Waubonsie Valley are both teams like last season seeing to surprise the DuPage Valley Conference. Again, I'm putting my money on DeKalb and Waubonsie Valley this season. Metea Valley has to win early to have a chance this season. Main thing that I ask is, can we finally have DuPage Valley team in a state title game this November.

TOP BET: This will be a weird season in the DVC

TOP BET 2: 3 Teams from DVC will make the Playoffs

TELL ME WHY: Waubonsie Valley seems like a huge sleeper this season after a disappointing season last year

GAMES I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO: Naperville Central vs Neuqua Valley & Naperville North vs Neuqua Valley
