The best concession stand pork chop is out there; and possibly it's local. The Illinois High School Association, this fall, is launching “The Pork and Pigskins Championship”. Just like the regular playoffs, over several weeks, seventy schools will be pared down through online voting and in-person judging. The victorious school will be announced during the 6A State Football championship in Dekalb in November.

Seneca, St. Bede and Hall are entered. The IHSA's partner - Illinois Pork Producers - will award the winner a $500 reimbursement on next season's pork purchase, a banner and a coveted Golden Spatula. You can see more at the IHSA website.
