Grayslake North Knights are FVC Fox Division Champs

After defeating Woodstock North 35 to 29 on Friday, the Grayslake North Knights are the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division champions.

In their final game of the regular season before the IHSA playoffs, the Grayslake North Knights varsity football team defeated the Woodstock North Thunder 35 to 29 on Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times Season Pass Website.

The victory gave Grayslake North the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division title all to itself (8-1 overall, 6-0 FVC Fox), according to mchenrycountysports.com, resulting in the Knights making the playoffs for the first time in its seven years.

After that victory, Grayslake North Coach Steve Wood told Patch, "We have a great group of kids who work hard. The kids are having fun and the coaching staff is having fun. It’s a good time to be where we are with the stands packed and in the hallways. It’s our first time in this position. We’ve had a lot of frustrations over the past years, but this is really exciting."

Looking ahead to the playoffs, Wood told Patch, "We need to be more consistent on defense. We need to get our offense on the field to win."

Making it the FVC Fox Division was "not a cakewalk," said Wood in a story posted on the Daily Herald Saturday.

Patch congratulates the Grayslake North Knights!

Congrats to the Knights. I was there covering them during the dog days, when things weren't so easy. I knew Steve Wood, who does a ton of charitable things for the community, would lead them in the right direction. Best of luck the rest of the way. Since I live in the district, I just wanted to say congratulations. There are days I miss covering you guys, but most of my freelance work involves other teams in the area these days. And you open the playoffs with a home game? How exciting is that gonna be for the community! That place will be packed, I'm sure, so get there early!

As someone who lives in the district, I am thrilled to say I was just asked to cover Grayslake North's first-ever playoff game on Friday night for the Sun-Times Media, News Sun and Pioneer Press. Honestly, I mean it when I say I am thrilled to have the opportunity. It's gonna be such a special feeling to see this firsthand after all the waiting. Best of luck out there to everyone!
