Training for the IHSA Destination Team Ambassadors was held on the NIU campus this week. These volunteers are the community members that will greet each of the 16 teams and all their coaching staff that will compete for the state football championships. They will greet the teams when they get off the bus, lead them to their practice area, locker rooms, and out on the field to play. They will also escort them out to accept their trophies and get team photos taken.
Wendy-West-Krauch is the IHSA Destination DeKalb Chair for 2015 and is also in charge of the Team Ambassadors.
The IHSA State Football Championships will take place at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb on November 27 and 28, 2015. The City of DeKalb and Northern Illinois University are extremely excited to be hosting this huge event again.
