2001 IHSA Football State Championships
November 23-24, 2001 @ Memorial Stadium, University of Illinois

Class 1A
Notes & Quotes

Winning Coach Tom Buck from Kewanee (Wethersfield)
This is a dream come true for these kids. We felt at the beginning of the season that we had a playoff team, and when we got into the playoffs things started to click.

Our late athletic director was extremely close to a lot of these kids, and he pased away duirng the season. It was a tough fall, but its a great experience for these kids to win this championship in his memory.

Momentum is vital, and we got things turned around on the goal line stand. We donít see their kind of offense very much in our league. When you hold Lexington to six points it is a tremendous accomplishment for our team.


Losing Coach Don Tanney from Lexington
I thought early in the game that we had some opportunities, we just didnít take advantage of them.

Our kids competed and faught for 48 minutes. We are disappointed, but we are not discouraged.

We are very proud of our kids and the great season they had. They showed great composure all season long.

You have to give credit to Wethersfield and their defense for the goal line stand. Theyíve got kids that can run to the ball and they are aggressive.

Notes
The 219 passing yards by Lexington is a 1A state championship game record. The old record (162 yards) was set by Bloomington (Central Catholic) in 1990.
