Last Season Recap
The 2012 Wolfpack season was the 'Tale of Two Seasons'. The first season saw the
Wolfpack lose four in a row and suffer some heartbreaking losses. The first of the
four came on a beautiful summer night at Soldier Field and the Pack didn't want
to disappoint the large number of fans that came out. The game proved to be tougher
than expected and the Wolfpack came up short, losing 7-0 in overtime to Whitney
Young. That game, combined with three more losses, left the Wolfpack scrambling
for a victory. Week five started the second season and what was a lost year turned
out to be a historic one. The Wolfpack not only won three of their last five games
but, for the first time since 1945, won the Catholic League Red Division and hosted
a play-off game at Saint Ignatius Field. In all, the Wolfpack played three overtime
games and beat two of the teams they had lost to the year before, and the future
of the program is extremely bright. The freshmen finished 5-3-1 and the sophomores
finished 7-2 and won the CCL Red Division with a perfect 4-0 record. The varsity
football team had a record eight All-Conference players led by junior Kyle Robinson,
sophomore Frank DiLeo and seniors Brandon Bobor, Zeb McLaurin, Paddy Geary, Joe
Javorski and Luke O'Connell who was also named to the All-State All-Academic team.
For the second year in a row, Saint Ignatius had the conference Offensive Player
of the Year - Malcolm May. The Wolfpack would like to thank all who supported them
throughout the 2012 campaign.
