BLOOMINGTON – Week 3 of high school football and our main game Friday night on WJBC is Central Catholic (2-0) hosting Paxton-Buckley-Loda (2-0).
The Saints have gotten off to a quick start and head coach Kevin Braucht says the team is playing with a lot of confidence.
“I think our guys understand that we are week to week. What we did last week, although that experience can help us on the field, it’s not going to get us any points or stops this week against PBL,” said Braucht.
All of our high school football coverage starts with the pregame at 6:10 p.m. on AM 1230 WJBC, FM 102.1, and WJBC.com.
Across the Intercity, Normal Community (2-0) looks to stay perfect as they host Peoria Richwoods (0-2). The Wildcats of Normal West (1-1) hit the road for Champaign Centennial (2-0), Bloomington (1-1) returns after an off week to face Peoria Manual (0-2), and U-High (0-2) is on the road against Springfield Lanphier (0-2).
