Our Lady of the Sacred Heart opens first-ever football season

Rockford, Ill. (WIFR) With 14 players, the Guardians may be the smallest high school football team in Illinois history, but players at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy in Rockford aren't letting that stop them from thinking big.

This Saturday OLSHA opened their first-ever football season at Christian Life high school against the Madison Trojans, another first year team. Though the school from the St. Louis suburbs proved to be too much for the Guardians, who failed to score in the first game falling to the Trojans 64-0.
