Kaneland @ DeKalb preview

By on October 9, 2009

Kaneland (4-2, 3-1) vs. DeKalb (1-5, 0-4) 1 p.m. at DeKalb High School

Saturday afternoon’s contest could make for a rude homecoming if you’re
DeKalb.

Kaneland will be raring to get the offense going after submitting its lowest
output of the season on Friday in a 21-7 loss to Glenbard South, while
DeKalb is hosting homecoming on the grounds of DHS after losing a 55-0 game
to Geneva on Friday.

The Knights will be coming off of their worst offensive output since an Oct.
17, 2008 matchup with Geneva, 42-7. The Knights were victims of a Geneva
team winning its 17th Western Sun outing in a row.

While this marks the final WSC meeting between the Knights and Barbs, the
two teams will still be conference mates in the new Northern Illinois Big 12
beginning in 2010. Kaneland has won the previous three meetings with the
Barbs by a combined score of 133-28.

The Barbs have lost five in a row after kicking the Coach Marty Sanders era
off in style with a 38-12 win in week one over Ottawa. Sanders’ previous
head coaching stop was the Kewanee High School Boilermakers from 2003-2007
in which the NCIC school went 11-34.

Here’s where to go:

    As a parent of a couple kids in Kaneland football, I would like to voice some concerns over playing time.
    The Junior High had won its game over Geneva by more the 60 pts.
    And allot of kids didn’t get to play at all !!! The same goes the the Varsity, with almost 30 point win over Dekalb, a out allot of kids didn’t see the field at all !!!
    How can we tell our kids to go for sports if they NEVER PLAY, even in blow out games ? The kids come home discouraged, when they should feel happy about winning. While the parents of the kids who play tell their son, good job or you could have done this better. What are we suppose to tell the kids that never play? Hang in there? Maybe you will play if they win by 70 ?? I wish I could tell one of my sons, “you played well today” is that too much to ask?
    Do the starters really need to be in every second of every game ? If our kids are that bad they should not be on the team, they should have been cut. Quit wasting their time, and our time and money.
    And the parents of these kids should not go without notice. We drive our children all over the place for the sport the dedicated their young lives to. We go to the games and sit in the cold and wet rain throughout the entire game, hoping our kid will play at the very end. All to be disappointed again by the Kaneland coaches and Athletic department. Shame on You Kaneland
