New Trier beat Glenbrook South 31 to 21 during Friday Night's game at Northfield.
The New Trier Trevians were behind 21-14 in the third quarter of Friday night's game against the Glenbrook South Titans, until Michael Thomas scored a tieing 3-yard touchdown just before the fourth, the Sun-Times reports. "It was a little frustrating earlier in the game when they kept completing passes for big gains on third down like that," New Trier linebacker Graham King told CSL Insider. "We just had to keep fighting. Good defenses can overcome things like that." After that, the Trevians just kept scoring — landing a 22-yard field goal with 7:37 on the clock and another two yard touch down with 1:33 remaining, according to the Sun-Times.

Following a slow start, Glenbrook South defeats New Trier convincingly to start 2-0 in conference.
The Glenbrook South Titans were guaranteed for a slow start as they hosted the New Trier Trevians Friday night. Why? The Titans did not run a single offensive play in the first quarter. New Trier took the opening drive and went on a 17 play drive that ate up 10:16 and ended it in a field goal. The Titans fumbled the following kickoff and New Trier ran 20 plays in the first quarter compared to Glenbrook South's zero. "You have to give New Trier credit," GBS head coach Mike Noll said. "They were ready to play right away. Once we relaxed a bit, we played smarter and better." GBS settled down midway through the second quarter. After forcing the Trevians to go three-and-out, running back Kevin Schroeder exploded, on the second play of the drive…

The junior wide receiver transitions well to varsity.
Keep your head on a swivel, if you’re not paying attention you might miss what Devin Boehm has to say. It’s not that New Trier’s junior wide receiver is quiet. Quite the opposite. Boehm is happy to share his opinion with his teammates, but makes his point quickly. Long-form speeches he leaves to the seasoned seniors on the team. Read more New Trier Athlete to Watch Profiles: Sam Scherer Though any filibuster at practice may not be in Boehm’s future, he’s determined to speak volumes with his play on the field. And Boehm got off to a quick start in Aug. 26’s 22-17 loss to Schaumburg when he carried the ball six times for over 100 yards in his first ever varsity game. “I wasn’t expecting to get as many rushes compared to receptions but it’s …

The Trevian senior linebacker sets sights on this year's conference championship.
Trevian Sam Scherer, New Trier's senior football star, is known by his coaches to have multiple personalities—one on the field and another off it. After starting last season, the New Trier coaching staff got a glimpse of Scherer’s Jekyl and Hyde act. It's a skill he's developed while playing inside linebacker for the Trevians. On the field he’s ferocious, loves to hit people and has a knack for the ball. Off the field he’s a good student, involved in the community and the kind of kid father’s want their daughters to date, according to the Trevians’ defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, Brent Becker. (Earlier: Check out all of Patch's New Trier Athletes to Watch.) But night or day, between the lines or outside them, Scherer is …
