Seems Like Old Times: Illini West, Newman Catholic set to renew rivalry
It was the first thing that caught my attention when the playoff pairings were announced...
The potential of a second round meeting between Sterling Newman and Illini West, the first such head-to-head since the 2004 State Title Game.
Fourteen years later, not much has changed for the Comets. Mike Pappocia is still in charge, in his 38th season at the helm. And Newman is still really, really good.
