|Tailback Owen Williams 2012|
Owen Williams and Nick Keefe, who have been teammates for four years at Lake Forest High School, will be lining up against each other for next four years.
Williams, who finished his senior season with 1,206 yards and 20 rushing TDs, will be playing for the University of Dayton next fall. Keefe, a star on the Scouts’ defense, will be suiting up for University of San Diego.
These two NCAA Division IAA schools compete in the 12-team Pioneer Football League. Dayton’s Flyers are scheduled to play the Toreros on Oct. 27. 2012 in California.
“Both of these guys are going to great schools,” said Lake Forest head football coach Chuck Spagnoli. “And best of all, they’re going to schools where they really wanted to go to.”
Last year, San Diego went 9-2 overall and won the conference with a 7-2 record. Dayton finished 6-5, 4-4.
Without a doubt, Dayton will be adding a playmaker to the mix. He basically was unstoppable for the past two seasons. As a junior, he rushed for 1,266 yards and 18 TDs. His career included not one, but two six-touchdown games.
Keefe capped off his three-year varsity career with a sterling senior season. He was all over the field, finishing with 56 tackles, seven quarterback sacks and 13.5 tackles-for-loss.
Meanwhile, Keefe’s defensive sidekick, Brandt Pfeifer has agreed to be a preferred walk-on at Division I Kent State, which competes in the Mid-America Conference.
Pfeifer was a defensive difference maker for the Scouts (8-3, NSC Lake co-champs). He wound up with 55 tackles, including five for loss.
Spagnoli said a couple of his other players still are weighing their options.
It’s down to three schools for quarterback Jordan Beck: West Point, Dayton and Augustana. Lineman John Marwede is looking at Bowdoin and DePauw, while Tyler Funk is undecided.
