  1. http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20171006/why-high-school-football-programs-are-losing-players- Interesting recent article on the most current participation trends in suburban Illinois. Most shocking is the decline at Wheaton Warrenville South, a 7 time Illinois state champ, which saw its numbers decline 42% over a 7 year period. This is a program on par with the likes of Avon, Brownsburg, HSE and Fishers. Can you imagine this type of decline happening at one of those schools? Or is it coming and just not yet arrived? Wheaton Warrenville is 2-7 BTW this year. Region schools, those closest to the suburban Chicago market, are seeing declines as well, but not at this magnitude. Why are parents in surrounding states, especially Michigan and Illinois, pulling their kids out of football at a higher rate than Indiana? Is it finances? Thoughts.
