Over the last five years, coaches across the nation, especially private school coaches, have been talking about how tough it is to fill-out their regular season schedule. As a result, we’ve watched programs like Bishop Gorman (Nevada), Don Bosco Prep (New Jersey) and many others build a national schedule filled with lots of travel.
I got a tweet on Twitter today from Quincy Notre Dame in Illinois asking for help in trying to find an October 24th opponent, which is the last week of the regular season in the state. At this late day, it’s going to be a tall task, but we thought we’d try to help with a story and working social media.
The Raiders are a 4A team in Illinois that has eight football classifications. Last season, Quincy Notre Dame was 10-2, losing in the state quarterfinals. The Raiders are coached by Bill Connell, who is entering his 23rd season as head coach with a lifetime record of 164-74.
The team is willing to travel. For more information, call Coach Connell at 217-257-6502.
