LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing any other sports?

Coach’s Corner

Crete-Monee Head Coach John Konecki on Harry on and off the field

“Deion is an extremely hard worker. He plays football and basketball at our high school and he’s an emerging leader for us as a junior. We brought him up as a sophomore and there was some learning to be had, but as far as a coach is concerned he is a great kid and we expect a big year from him”.
