Happy Friday Oak Park. Here’s the scoop.


Last Week: Oak Park improves to 2-0 with victory over Nordhoff

After a promising start to the season last week, the Eagles remained undefeated with a 13-3 victory over Nordhoff. Perhaps the most prominent storyline of the game was the Eagles suffocating defense, which stymied the Nordhoff attack.


Leading the charge for the Eagles offense was Jordan Vega, who finished with 98 rushing yards on 13 attempts. Starting quarterback David Schmucker suffered an apparent leg injury during the first quarter and remained sidelined for the entirety of the game, forcing backup Madison McIntyre into the game. McIntyre struggled for the most part, but the Eagles persevered to secure a victory.
