NAPERVILLE – The road to a second straight Class 8A state championship starts on a difficult note for Naperville Central.
The Redhawks welcome a team that may be more battle tested than any in the state in Brother Rice. The 7:30 p.m. Friday kickoff will be broadcast by CN100 at Noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1, and at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 3. You can also find the game throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.
“We played one of the toughest schedules in the state, most likely in the Midwest,” Brother Rice coach Brian Badke said.
Brother Rice (6-3) was co-champion in the rugged Chicago Catholic Blue, with losses to Providence in Week 8 and to two teams outside of Illinois.
“Their players will be battle tested from the tough schedule they play,” Central coach Mike Stine said.
Central's seven-game win streak was snapped by a desperate Wheaton Warrenville South team last week.
Central rode senior running back Kevin Clifford, who had 1,243 yards and nine touchdowns rushing. Junior quarterback Conor Joyce passed for 879 yards and two touchdowns, adding four rushing touchdowns.
Brother Rice boasts the Catholic Blue co-Offensive Player of the Year, senior Marcus Jones. He ran for 752 yards and 13 touchdowns, while adding 26 catches for 464 yards and four TDs.
Senior quarterback Alex Alarcon registered a dynamic season, throwing for 1,961 yards and 16 touchdowns. He added 529 yards and seven scores rushing. His top target is sophomore receiver Ricky Smalling (56 catches, 830 yards, nine touchdowns). He also spreads the ball to junior Julian Blain and senior Zach Hayes on the outside.
“I would say they will be the best team we have faced this season,” Stine said.
Junior DB Jordan Boyd leads the team with 65 tackles and three interceptions. Senior defensive lineman has 47 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks. Senior linebacker Jim Opoka contributed 54 tackles.
“They are physical up front and they have great athletes in the secondary,” Stine said.

  • Morgan Park Resident I am a home owner

    Thanks @ David McCLain, the reason I asked whether or not it's in the landmark district is two fold, I was about to put in an offer for the property on 10534 Hamilton (not sure about the correct address) then my wife saw your comment, we are looking for something that sits back from the property line like yours. As Alice indicated why is it not listed? And what's your asking price? If it's in the landmark zone, I really can't do anything with it like a total upgrade...

  • Morgan Park District Resident & Alice Hunter thanks again for your inquires.

Electric aggregate program?

Anyone have insight on the letter I received in the mail today regarding the electric aggregate program offering "lower" rates for electric? I have to opt out by oct 31st. Is anyone opting to stay in it? Not sure what to think of this. Any insight is appreciated

  • Try using this comparison from the Citizens Utility Board:
    www.chicagopowercalculator.com

    You'll need an electric bill to input the killowatt hours you've used in the past year.

  • All service providers (whether you do the aggregate program, pay ComEd as the service provider, or go through an outside company for your electricity) have to go through ComEd for delivery of the service because they own the lines. I've gone through other providers in the past before I moved to the city and the rates in the aggregate program are significantly lower than other non-ComEd providers are.

Dogs

As long as you are not leaving them out for a long period of time I don't see why you should have to change. When mine go out it is when they need to. I never leave them out for more than a few minutes and if they start to bark, they have to come back in. If I am out with them, they stay longer and are fine. There is no pleasing some people no matter how hard you try, so long as it is with in reason on your part - oh well.

Re: Edison VS city version

We have had it since it started and the rates are lower. If they change or raise it you can switch back to Edison. Most of the neighbors on my block have it and are pleased with it.
