Beyond the Game
The love of football doesn't end when players leave the field. Whether it is teammates or families, the sport brings them closer together.
The football teams at Crystal Lake South and Richmond-Burton High Schools are two winning programs on opposite sides of McHenry County. At Richmond-Burton the team is a family. While at Crystal Lake South, the Ahsmann family bonds over football. The two teams illustrate how one game can bring people together.
