Waukegan High School’s football team will be in a must-win situation when it hosts unbeaten powerhouse New Trier at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the Bulldogs’ Homecoming football game. The Bulldogs are 2-2 and need a win to remain playoff viable as teams head into the second half of the season. While the football game is the centerpiece of Homecoming at Waukegan, it is definitely not the only event.

Truth be told, it required some research to even remember that Tyrone “T.J.” Scafe played on Waukegan High School’s varsity boys basketball team during the 2012-2013 season, which was Ron Ashlaw’s last season as the team’s coach. Blame it on some combination of Scafe being a second-team player on the Bulldog squad that year, and age-related memory loss on the part of the person sitting on this side of your newspaper or laptop screen. As a result, T.J.’s story went untold throughout his four years of high school and through his freshman year at Williams College in Massachusetts.

For Chicago Bears fans, Friday night’s game at Seattle against the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks is must-see TV.
