Family gridiron rivalry: Vernon Hills vs. Stevenson

While the NFL sibling match-up of Peyton (Denver) Manning and Eli (New York Giants) Manning got lots of national attention last weekend, we have an intriguing local family’s gridiron match-up coming Sept. 27.

When Vernon Hills High School meets rival Stevenson High School at their homecoming game that Friday, Stevenson’s team will be lead by its coach, Bill McNamara.

Meanwhile, the quarterback for Vernon Hills is Bill’s son, sophomore Connor McNamara.

Imagine the dinner table chat at the McNamara household these days!
