NORMAL – The high school football regular season is quickly coming to a close with just two weeks remaining.
Normal Community is undefeated and they’ll try to remain perfect Friday night against Champaign Centennial. Ironmen head coach Jason Drengwitz says the Chargers will present some challenges.
“On offense they’ve got a quarterback that can throw it and running backs that can run it. A lot of those guys play on defense as well and they play physical,” said Drengwitz. “They are really going to present a challenge and we are preparing for that because they’re 4-3 and they’re playing for their playoff lives.”
