NEWS > Football team wins a close game against OPRF

Lia Reichmann, Kabir Sawlani, Editor-in-Chief, and Abby Stockmal, Editor-in-Chief

On Friday, Sept. 7 the football team faced off against Oak Park-River Forest High School. Both sides defenses were impenetrable. The team was able to come out with a 7-0 win in the lowest scoring game of the season.

During the first half, both teams’ offense had trouble generating momentum, keeping the half scoreless. The football team’s first drive ended 3-in-out, which would be a trend throughout the game.

The game’s only score came in the fourth quarter when Drew Novatney, junior safety, picked off a pass from OPRF quarterback Jaden McGill and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown. Novatney provided the ... READ FULL STORY

Schwartz playing big for Hinsdale Central

Hinsdale Central coach Dan Hartman noted that junior defensive end Lucas Schwartz is a player to watch. Schwartz was a late-season call-up last season, and gained valuable experience playing in the Class 8A playoffs against Stevenson and Loyola.

“[Lucas] is quick, fast and strong,” Hartman said. “He can really get to the quarterback and causes a lot of problems in the running and passing games. He keeps getting better and better and had a great offseason. He’s exceeded our expectations.”

The Oak Park and River Forest High School football team turned in a tremendous effort against Hinsdale Central on Friday. In particular, the Huskies' defense didn't allow any points and special teams also played very well at Dickinson Field in Hinsdale.

However, winning typically requires contributions in all three phases of the game: offense, defense and special teams.

And while the Huskies win or lose as a team, it is undeniable their offense sputtered all evening against the Red Devils in a 7-0 loss.

 In fact, the OPRF offense not only went scoreless but gave up the lone touchdown ... READ FULL STORY

Junior safety Drew Novatney is proving two things in the opening weeks football season: First, that he has a knack for the ball, but also that he is quick at picking up a new position.

Novatney provided the only score against Oak Park-River Forest when he picked off a Jaden McGill pass and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown Friday night in Hinsdale. The fourth-quarter interception return helped the Red Devils open West Suburban Silver play with a 7-0 victory against the Huskies.

“I was just playing normal defense, playing deep,” said Novatney, who lives in Hinsdale. “You knew they were going to throw, they were ... READ FULL STORY
NEWS > Excitement at Hinsdale Central football games starts with the Red Devils marching band

Kimberly Fornek

Before Hinsdale Central’s Red Devils football team takes the field for its first home game Friday, the school’s more than 300 strong marching band will have roused the crowd.

Their job is to get the audience excited, said drum major Kelly Pam, a senior from Hinsdale.

Pam also plays the flute in Central’s wind ensemble, which has 60 to 70 members, but performing with the marching band is a different experience.

“I get to hear all 300 students and you can feel four times the energy,” Pam said. “The power behind the sound is what really moves me.”

When Matt Kurinsky became Central’s band director in 2017, ... READ FULL STORY
