If you watched ESPN on Monday, you’d have thought you were dreaming. For thirty glorious seconds, a high school in Aurora, Illinois was praised for its accolades on the football field. However, it wasn’t a dream.
On ESPN’s NFL Live program, Waubonsie Valley football coach Paul Murphy was named NFL’s High School Coach of the Week. ESPN cut together a quick 30-second reader about Murphy and the Warriors’ last minute win over Glenbard North in Week 2 of the IHSA season.
Murphy and the Warriors host rival Metea Valley on Friday, September 23 at Dick Kerner Stadium for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
