OPRF High School graduate (2008) and first round NBA draft pick Iman Shumpert gave notice in a recent New York Post blog entry that the biggest game he has on his mind is a match-up against the Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose.
The year was 1928. The facemask didn't yet exist. Football "helmets" were made of leather. Men in the stands at Oak Park Stadium taking in an afternoon high school football game wore fedoras or Irish flat-caps.
His first year at the helm of the OPRF football program hasn't been ideal record-wise, but John Hoerster remains optimistic about the future, especially with running back Jakari Cammon returning next season.
It wasn't exactly in the same style the famous soccer great Pelé executed in the film Victory back in 1981, but Dominican University midfielder Leo Elizalde's impressive bicycle kick goal helped his team grab a 2-1 victory over Milwaukee School of Engineering last week.
