SHARE Playoff preview: Warren at Glenbrook South

Class 8A: No. 10 Warren (6-3) at No. 7 Glenbrook South (7-2), 6 p.m. Saturday 


Brett Laurie, Glenbrook South — The senior tailback and cornerback stars on both sides of the ball. In Friday’s 30-20 win over Niles West he had 21 carries for 122 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a 77-yard TD pass.

Michael Gentile, Glenbrook South — The senior tailback is part of a running game the Titans increasingly have relied on since losing star receiver Cody Carroll in Week 6 to an injury.

Andrew Nickell, Warren — The senior quarterback had a 14-for-23, 341-yard, three-touchdown effort in a 59-10 win over Libertyville in Week 5.

Maxwell Sorby, Warren — The senior running back ran for 287 yards on 28 carries in a 61-38 win over North Chicago in Week 7.


Can Glenbrook South’s defense stop Warren’s offense? The Gurnee team averaged 48 points in its six wins. However, Warren scored a total of 33 points in its losses to Lake Zurich, Stevenson and Lake Forest.


The Blue Devils are coming off a 31-19 loss to Lake Forest. Scouts senior running back Hub Cirame had 23 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the game. That’s a good sign for Glenbrook South and its rushing attack of Laurie, Gentile and senior Steven Schroeder.


The teams haven’t met in recent memory according to multiple people at Glenbrook South. New Trier was their one common opponent this year. The Blue Devils defeated the Trevians 42-6 on Sept. 6, while Glenbrook South beat New Trier 42-14 on Oct. 11.
