As states on all sides of Illinois begin to or continue to play football, a hall of fame football coach is growing frustrated as Illinois continues to remain sidelined.


Monticello head football coach Cully Welter says it is frustrating to watch every state on every side of Illinois play high school football, meanwhile, Illinois is only one of two states in the union to remain sidelined.
