Week 13 IHSA Football State Semi-Finals and Public - Catholic League Finals Schedule - Simeon Wolverines Defeat Morgan Park 35-14 To Win Public League
Joliet Catholic Academy Will Host Lombard Montini in Class 5A Semi-Final

Well, the 2012-2013 High School Football Season is winding down and Week 13 will either be a lucky or unlucky one for the remaining Illinois High School Association (IHSA) State Semi-Finalists. Of course that also holds true for the Chicago Public and Catholic League Finalists as they vie for the right to meet each other in the long-running City Classic known as the Chicago Prep Bowl.

Naturally it takes an awful lot to get to this point but I would like to congratulate all the teams (those left standing as well as all the participants) who have made the 2012-2013 Football Season an exciting one.

To the Seniors who will be winding down their Prep careers - remember the enormity of your run thus far. Things will no doubt change as the College Experience will be something unlike anything you have thought it would be. Local stars will soon be over-shadowed by the other local stars from around the nation - but don't let it get you down because you will all grow just the same. Especially when it comes to the meaning of the bigger picture that only the next level can bring. As for the underclassmen? Well, whether you were a starter or simply one of the many who have been waiting in the wings for their chance - let this year's experiences guide you all on to a successful 2013-2014 Season.
