Mike O'Laughlin

As an alum of Fenwick High School, I was taught the Dominican values of maintaining journalistic integrity at all times so I will recall those values through out this article (wink, wink). Fenwick is currently 2-0, with huge wins over 4A champs Wendell Phillps Academy and Bowen High School. The win over Phillips was such a huge moment for the program, bringing SO MUCH momentum with it that it very well may carry over until Thanksgiving weekend down in Champaign. What a way to open your season, huh? And because of that win, head coach Gene Nudo was named Coach of the Week and Fenwick was given $2000 for his efforts. Bowen was an easy mop up game for the Friars and they are now ranked #16 according to EdgyTim. This Friday, they take on Montini for what surely be the point in the Friars’ season where they prove themselves either as contenders or pretenders. Look for big performances from QB Jacob Keller connecting with WR Mike O’Laughlin and strong runs from RB Conner Lillig. If I weren’t moving, I’d be buying tickets to this game with both hands! God, what I wouldn’t give to play high school football again.
