Week 3 prep football helmet stickers

By Scott Powers

Here are five players who stood out during Week 3 and received our first weekly ESPNChicago.com helmet stickers.

Plano’s Joseph Jones: Jones is the first of two Northwestern recruits to receive a sticker this week. Jones was the difference in Plano’s 38-20 win over Manteno this past week. He rushed for 192 yards and four touchdowns on 15 carries.

Dan Vitale
Dan Vitale helped to get Wheaton Warrenville South's offense on track.

Aurora Christian’s Anthony Maddie: However Maddie touched the ball, Chicago Christian didn’t seem to have an answer for him last week. Maddie, a Western Michigan recruit, was 14-of-23 passing for 326 yards and five touchdowns. He also returned a punt for a touchdown in the 54-7 win.

Glenbrook South’s Kevin Schroeder: Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South don’t get together that often, so when they do, it means a whole lot. Schroeder, a senior running back, took advantage of his opportunity against Glenbrook North this past week, rushing for 186 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans’ 28-14 win.

Wheaton Warrenville South’s Dan Vitale: Wheaton Warrenville South’s offense had struggled throughout its first two games. In Week 3, Vitale made sure that didn’t happen again. Vitale, a Northwestern recruit, carried the ball 24 times for 179 yards and accounted for all three touchdowns in the Tigers’ 20-6 win over West Aurora.

Crystal Lake South’s Brad Walovitch: Few people have been able to celebrate their 18th birthday like Walovitch did against Cary-Grove. Aside from handing punting and kickoff duties, catching passes as a wide receiver, carrying the ball as a running back and breaking up passes and making tackles as a defensive back, Walovitch also kicked a game-winning 51-yard field goal in the final seconds to beat rival Cary-Grove.
