ROCHELLE — In the first round of the IHSA Class 4A Playoffs, the Hubs (5-4) will have to face a team they have never seen before, but the preparation for Chicago’s Walter Payton College Preparatory High School (8-1) will be no different according to Rochelle Township High School head football coach Kevin Crandall.

“We have been in the playoffs quite a bit. I think we have a pretty good formula for getting the kids ready,” he said. “This week won’t be as physical, we will rest a lot more and just try to stay healthy for game day.”

Despite dropping its last three games of the season and falling to 5-4 on the year, Rochelle will head into Lane Stadium in Chicago with a renewed spirit in the Class 4A pairing.
