Congrats to Zach Howard, Max Ford and Levell Coppage, all members of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater team that won the NCAA Division III Football Championship, shown Dec. 19 on ESPN.

Howard is a kick returner and wide receiver, Ford is a starting linebacker, and Coppage is the starting running back who scored three touchdowns in the championship game. Coppage was also selected MVP of the game. All three are graduates of Oak Park and River Forest High School.
