High School Lites Preview: Week Seven (20181004)

2 minute read

By Edgy Tim

NBC Sports Chicago will have cameras covering the biggest high school football games across Chicagoland on the Week Seven edition of High School Lites, Friday at 11:00 p.m. Can Marist go on the road and beat Nazareth Academy in LaGrange Park? Is this the year that Oswego East snaps Oswego's 13 game winning streak in this heated Southwest Prairie duel? Can T.F. South beat South Suburban Blue rival Hillcrest? Can Kaneland go on the road and beat upstart Yorkville? And who do you have in a huge West Suburban Silver battle: Hinsdale Central or Glenbard West?


(12) Glenbard West at (19) Hinsdale Central, 7:30 p.m.

EDGY's Take: This is a key game in the West Suburban Silver with the winner getting a big leg up for a conference crown. Hinsdale Central (5-1, 4-0), featuring head coach Dan Hartman, has a playmaker in senior QB Matt Rush. But the Red Devils can also run the football well with senior RB Matt Bobak. Glenbard west (5-1, 3-0) and head coach Chad Hetlet will stick to the Hilltoppers' successful formula: a strong running game led by senior RB Tyquan Cox and a very fast/physical defense. Can Hinsdale Central's defense limit the Hilltoppers running game and RB Tyquan Cox's big play potential? Can the Glenbard West defense disrupt and get pressure on Red Devils' spread passing game?

EDGY's Pick: Glenbard West 24 Hinsdale Central 21
