CONGRATULATIONS LANE TECH INDIANS!

Congratulations to the men of the Lane Tech High School football team, winners of the 2008 (Chicago) Public League Championship. Lane took the crown in a decisive victory over Hubbard over the weekend, with a most decisive 24-7 victory.

Next up for Lane, a showdown against Loyola on Friday at Soldier Field, the 75th annual Prep Bowl.

according to wikipedia,
As early as 1927, the Chicago Public Leage football champion met the Chicago Catholic League champion at Soldier Field for the city title. The game would be later dubbed the Prep Bowl in 1934 by Mayor Edward Kelly as a Thanksgiving fundraiser for the city's poor. Until the advent of the Illinois state playoffs in 1974, the Prep Bowl was the main attraction of the fall season, attracting crowds in upwards of 100,000 in its heyday and averaging close to 65,000. Since 1974, crowds have dramatically dwindled with the emphasis switching to earning a state championship. The renovation of Soldier Field in 2003 has seen a steady resurgence in crowds for the game, averaging around 20-25,000.

Go Lane Go!
