Bigger, Stronger Wildkits Ready for Football Opener

This is the year the impact of the new fitness/wellness facility at Evanston Township High School figured to show across the board in boys and girls sports alike.

Then the coronavirus pandemic hit, limiting access to that modern facility and strength guru Mark Feldner. But once the members of the ETHS football team could get back in the building and hit the weights again, they hit them — hard.

A bigger, stronger and experienced Wildkit football squad opens a shortened season on Friday at Central Suburban League South division foe Glenbrook North and will get their first chance to flex their new muscles.

With the season postponed from last fall until now, the Kits will play all 5 division foes and will add on a 6th game crossover against a to-be-determined foe from the CSL North. There won’t be an Illinois High School Association state playoff series this year. And that means even more of an emphasis on the conference race, as the Wildkits hope to rebound from a 3-6 season to challenge Maine South and New Trier for supremacy there.
