We announce the opening of IL football coverage


We are extremely pleased to announce the opening of our high school football coverage for the fall 2015 season in Illinois. As in the past, each team has its own page.

Voxitatis opens football coverage in 2015 with a new, mobile-friendly design.

We recommend that you navigate to your favorite team and then bookmark your team’s page on our site, which will save you the trouble of finding the team among more than 575 teams in the state this fall. To find your team’s page, do one of the following:

  • Type the IHSA name, such as Tinley Park (Andrew)—or enough of it to make it clear which school you mean—in the box and select “Find Team.” For this example, typing andr would be enough.
  • Select the IHSA name from the list below. Illinois has lots of football teams, so the list is a long one, but at least it’s alphabetized.
  • Find the school on our Google map. When you click on the map marker pushpin, you’ll find a link directly to the school’s football page.

Opening day is Friday, Aug 28, and while we have some features loaded in the preseason, the real fun gets going when your team plays its first game.

There’s some hint as to what we’ve got up our sleeves, but our new interface will allow you to update the score from your mobile device while you’re at the game. This will keep your friends and fans tied into the action, especially if they can’t be there.

We’re counting on you to make this work. If we don’t receive any updates from the field, we’ll just report the final score as soon as the IHSA or MaxPreps posts it.

We have also added a “shout-out” section, which will allow you to send appropriate comments to the team and everyone else who’s following that page. During games, your comments will also be visible to web users following your opponent’s page, so keep it civil out there. If you see anything that seems inappropriate, we might have missed it and would appreciate it if you select the “Report” hyperlink next to the comment you find inappropriate.

We’re counting on you, the fans, to make this year dynamic, active, and fun for football fans everywhere. Our mathematical analysis and historical perspective for this year’s seniors will continue as it has for the past several years, but the updated scoring and commenting are new.

As always, we thank you for visiting Voxitatis and for allowing us to bring you ad-free coverage of the fine arts, academics, and athletics in our schools, which is something we do that nobody else seems to approach in quite the same way. We hope you enjoy it. If you don’t, please let us know by commenting on our home page.
