Re: Pekin Seraching For New Varsity Boys Coach

I wonder if Pekin will look in house such as Jeremy Crouch (is he still at Pekin - I know he was head coach at Illini Bluffs and then became assistant to Walraven years back) or will the school look outside for an established coach? Since Walraven was an in house hire, I would like to see the school...

Re: Pekin Seraching For New Varsity Boys Coach

Good for him...coaching at varsity can be a real grind! At least he got to fulfill a dream he had to be a varsity coach (I read that when he took the job)

Re: NFL expands schedule

$$$$ > Player Safety True that....overall this makes no sense. So some teams get 9 home games while others only 8? That's not fair. The more weeks the more watered down football we will see. Who wants to see teams second and third stringers battling it out because of added injuries? Some have said ...

Pekin Seraching For New Varsity Boys Coach

I saw today on the Pekin school website that Pekin high school is searching for a new varsity boys basketball coach. Anyone know what happened to Coach Walraven? Did he resign, going to a new school or was he fired? Anyway, wish the best for Walraven, seemed like a quality person who had mixed resul...

Re: Scores

I've been on here off and on for over 20 years and remember BW quite well - even met him at a Pekin/Metamora game. I think he retired and moved to Tennessee. Those were great days on the board when a Washington-Metamora game would garner 200-300 posts before being pulled off because of so much trash...

Re: Scores

Is the Dunlap QB okay? The second hit, which I saw, it did seem that the Pekin player slammed the QB to the ground in needless way - that will be called almost all the time. It's sad that it seems Pekin has a reputation around the league as being dirty. How good is Dunlap expected to be this year? ...

Re: Scores

Also heard racial slurs where shouted after the Dunlap game by Pekin players. Parents were holding back students from trying to fight. Pekin is and has always been a dirty team. Showed that again tonight. Congrats to the Eagles. We will see you next week. I would hope the racial stuff isn't true......

Re: Scores

Pekin is like ground hog day! Stupid penalties, blocked punt, and on and on. Sometimes the team looks really good but bad penalties - sacked Dunlap QB out of red zone but unsportsmanlike penalty - first down and goal! Long kickoff return but then delay of game, offsides and suddenly 1st and twenty a...

Pekin 14-7 at half - ragged play as expected. Van Ness 53 TD run....Eagles open 2nd half with good drive. Interesting watching football in March! :joker

East Peoria struggles in a lot of sports, not just football. I would gladly be part of a program that does well in most sports like Dunlap. As a Pekin guy, I would take Dunlap sports program over Pekin any day of the week! :D

Pekin will beat Dunlap if they play. That program is horribly coached. They have some talent but there is no hustle and they cant rebound Coach has two kids and guess what they both start varsity. They really need Eddie to just take over the program and turn it around. I know a few kids left to go ...

THE TEAM. THERE ARE A FEW Hustlers OUT THERE AND KIDS THAT WANT TO WIN. WHEN WE PLAYED THEM LAST YEAR Dunlap was actually winning. With 1-2 minutes left in the game Dunlap was up by 10 I believe. Instead of dribbling and passing they continued to shoot and make silly fouls. Result was Dunlap lost I...
