BLOOMINGTON – Week two of high school football kicks off tonight across Central Illinois.
After falling to Normal Community in Week 1 14-0, Normal West Coach Nathan Fitchim said his Wildcats are looking for redemption in Week 2 against Bloomington.
“We want to beat a team that we think we are; that’s first and foremost. We need to take care of ourselves and play our game and play our potential.”
Across town, Bloomington Coach Scott Godfrey said he’s looking forward to taking on the Wildcats.
“There are a few keys to victory for us. We want to limit our turnovers and win the turnover battle. We know that we’ve got to handle their three different quarterbacks that they are throwing at us. Each one of them brings something pretty good to the table. We need to defend their length at receiver.”
You can hear from all of the area coaches tonight at 6 p.m. with play-by-play action of Normal West against Bloomington starting at 7 p.m.
Coverage of Prairie Central against Monticello can be heard on Classic Hits 98.9 FM WJEZ starting at 6:50 p.m.
