It’s been an unusual weekend for high school football.  All of the Chicago Public Schools weekend games were canceled and only some were rescheduled for today.  Plus, the weather caused game interruptions and postponements.  Our preps team of Michael O’Brien, Beth Long and Annie Costabile is here to sort it all out in this new episode of “Sun-Times Game Week” recorded live today from Back of the Yards on the South Side. This episode includes:

  • The fallout from the CPS game cancellations
