2104 REBEL VARSITY OPENER
The Rebels will start the 2014 season on Friday August 29 hosting the Knoxville Blue Bullets of the Prairieland Conference. Kick-off will be at 7:00 PM at Gary Johnson Field in Wyoming.
The Rebels come off a 2013 season where they were tri-champions of the LTC with Mercer County and Annawan/Wethersfield and then losing in the 2nd Round of the IHSA Class 1A Play-offs to Chicago St. Leo 31 - 20 finishing the season 9 - 2. Knoxville was tri-champions of the Prairieland Blue along with Elmwood/Brimfield and Farmington. The Blue Bullets lost in the 1st Round of the IHSA Class 2A Play-offs to Elmwood/Brimfield 24 - 7 ending their season at 7 - 3.
