Check out Dan Shalin's preview for the Evanston vs. New Trier football game for High School Cube News:
While plenty of former students came back to New Trier for Friday’s homecoming game, the most notable returnees may have been the four current Trevian football players who were back from injury.
Senior Frank Nicholas, who began the season as the starting quarterback, returned as a starting safety after missing a month with a shoulder injury. Senior offensive tackle Rijad Pekmez, who tore the ACL and damaged the meniscus and cartilage in his left knee in Week 1, came back for the first time.
Additionally, senior nose tackle James Doan and senior receiver Spencer Cotten returned after missing the previous week’s loss to Glenbrook South.
Their presence appeared to give New Trier a much needed lift.
