QUINCY -- It turns out the shelf life of the Quincy High School-Quincy Notre Dame football rivalry will be quite short. There will be a one-year hiatus before the schools renew the crosstown series in 2020. They agreed to a two-year contract calling...
The excitement in Zak Huston's voice was easy to detect. Huston learned Tuesday morning the Illinois High School Association member schools approved 11 amendment proposals to their by-laws, including a proposal to implement a district scheduling system fo
Rick Little knew it wasn't a fair fight, so he tried his best to lessen the blows. He simply couldn't let Jirehl Brock throw haymaker after haymaker at his own teammates. The Quincy High School football coach limited the number of touches the all-state senior running back got on a daily basis. It kept one of the state's best offensive weapons fresh deep into the season, and it eliminated the chance the QHS defenders felt deflated at the end of every practice after having to chase him.

QUINCY -- Quincy High School football coach Rick Little felt like he went into each game this past season with the best player in the state in his lineup. He wasn't alone in that thinking. Jirehl Brock, the all-state senior running back and Iowa State commit, was named the Gatorade Illinois Football Player of the Year on Wednesday.
The recruiting game changed dramatically Thursday for Jonny Bottorff. The Quincy Notre Dame all-state offensive lineman has been in regular contact with a number of NCAA Division II programs and drawn some interest from a few FCS schools.
