Bolingbrook High School will take on Carl Sandburg Friday night in the first round of the IHSA football playoffs.
The Bolingbrook High School football team's first playoff game is almost upon us, and the big question is: Will Bolingbrook's star quarterback Aaron Bailey be clear to play? He may, and he may not. Whether Bailey will play Friday, or if he does, for how long, are both unclear. Bailey injured his knee during Bolingbrook's game against Lincoln-Way East Sept. 28. He visited the doctor Monday, and his knee was "80 to 90 percent," according to the Chicago Tribune. "Bailey is eager to return for a run at another state title, but would like to be 100 percent when he does," the Tribune reported. Even without Bailey, the Tribune picks Bolingbrook to win over Sandburg in the first week of the playoffs. The Raiders lost to Sandburg in overtime 13…
