Wolves hungry for more wins at Oswego East
Oswego East High School would love to keep its streak alive, as unlikely as that might be: The Wolves closed out last season without giving up a point in their last two games.
Regardless, Oswego turned in a strong season overall, ending it ranked 28th in the state after turning in some dominating performances, including a 60-28 victory over Minooka High School. The Wolves finished with an 8-2 record and went 8-1 in conference play.
Coming into the 2017 season, the Wolves are 18th in the state football rankings.
Last season the Wolves were helped by a tough defense that gave up an average of only 14 points a game. During the entire season, only Minooka was able to score more than 20 points on OEHS, but the Wolves won with a lopsided score of 60-28.
On the offensive side of the ball, the Wolves put up an average of 39 points per game and scored more than 50 points on three occasions.
The Wolves open the season on Aug. 25 against Joliet West High School, which is bringing back several key players and promises to be one of Oswego's toughest opponents. The Wolves also face competition from the likes of Plainfield North High School and Joliet West High School.
The Wolves are coached by Tyson LeBlanc, who has led the team since 2011.
