The football season is a little over 2/3 complete and St. Charles is a solid 5-2 as they look to be the top dog in the CCL. Something they haven’t been too familiar with.
That was illustrated last week when they beat DeSales 36-0, securing their first victory against the Stallions in 36 years. 36 years. That is almost my entire lifetime. That means guys I know who went to St. Charles when I was in high school went winless against DeSales in football.
One of St. Charles key football players in their victory against DeSales was Ben Hale, someone I’ve worked with since he was 8 years old. This past spring was the last time Ben and I trained as I helped get him prepped for Summer combines which inevitably earned him a college scholarship to Bowling Green.
In the game, Ben was able to score an end of the half touchdown reception. But, Ben’s primarily on defense as a safety and scored a big play stripping the quarterback and running it back for a touchdown. I’m sure he was pretty excited as he ended up getting a picture in the paper and a quote.
Right now, St. Charles is in a position to make the state playoffs. Get a win over rival Watterson and another victory and it might just secure them that playoff spot. Is your team going to be able to knock them off.
