Driscoll Catholic (IL) Going Deep...Into Pockets

The High School Football Huddle

Driscoll Catholic High School (Addison, IL) supporters are leaving it all on the field as they continue to rally to save the Chicagoland high school football power.

Save Driscoll organizers will meet with the De La Salle Christian Brothers of the Midwest today in suburban Chicago to try to convince officials to keep the school open. The Christian Brothers announced April 2nd that the school would close its doors at the end of the year because of declining enrollment that is causing economic problems for the school that won seven Illinois high school football championships between 2001 and 2007.

Since the announcement earlier this month, Save Driscoll organizers say they have raised over $850,000 to keep the school open.
