SHARE Hales faces Leo in ‘Soul Bowl’

Hales and Leo will renew their Catholic League rivalry Saturday with the “Soul Bowl” on the line.

From DNAInfo.com:

“You can feel the intensity of the week right now,” Hales Franciscan High School football coach Randall Townsel, whose squad faces Catholic League and South Side rival Leo High School for the Soul Bowl, said Monday afternoon.

The Soul Bowl is actually a worn-down black helmet with an “H” for Hales on one side and an “L” for Leo on the other. The multi-colored words “Soul Bowl” are on the front and back. The helmet also has a “DS” sticker, in remembrance of former Hales coach Darrel Sanders, who died suddenly in 2012 at age 52.

The name refers to the South Side schools’ predominantly African-American student population.
