What Is Happening With High School Sports In Illinois? Guest: Derek Parris of Channel1450

November 4, 2020

Illinois is the only state in the Midwest and one of only a handful of states in America where high school football is NOT being played this fall. The hope was that high school basketball would be played, but now that season is in jeopardy as well because of a recent decision made by the state. It's been a contentious battle between the state's governor and the IHSA, parents, coaches and athletes. Chase Senior brings on his great friend and former coworker, Derek Parris of to explain what's going on in the passionate sports state of Illinois, the mental health toll it's taken on athletes and they reminisce about their time working together.
