The seniors came out to play their last regular season home game celebrating Senior Night at George Gattas Memorial Stadium in style with a 44-7 victory against Wheeling High School on Oct. 20. 

 

The Knights came out with a 23-0 lead in the first four minutes of the first quarter. Quarterback Jack Skoog with 119 passing yards and two touchdown passes with running back Noah Easter 62 rushing yards and two touchdowns. 

 

With a 30-0 lead with a minute left in the first quarter that was enough for head coach Dan DeBouef to take the starters out. 

 

Sophomore QB Lucas Deines would finish the half with 100 passing yards and 2 touchdowns would give the Knights a 44-0 at halftime. 

 

With the running clock, Wheeling would score a touchdown in the fourth quarter to make it 44-7 Knights.

 

The Knights defense also played a big role in this game with senior Owen Anderson one of the three interceptions for the Knights. 

 

Going into the fourth quarter DeBouef decided to put in some junior varsity players. 

 

Sophomore Gabriel Lattanzio who has been only playing football for two years had his chance to show his skills on the varsity level for the first time.

 

Lattanzio recorded one sack and a tackle for loss in his first varsity game.

 

“I was on another level, I don’t even know how to explain,” Lattanzio said.

 

The Knights finish with a record of 7-2 on the season and 4-1 in the MSL East. They next  play Buffalo Grove Friday in round one of the IHSA playoffs at George Gattas Memorial Stadium. 

 

The IHSA playoffs are on their way and Prospect could possibly play top tier teams such as Mount Carmel or St. Rita.

 

“We are expected to do good, as a team we are ready,” Lattanzio said about the playoffs.
