The 2019 edition of Illinois high school football continued into Saturday on the last day of August as teams kicked off their season in daylight, one day after the Friday night lights turned on the 2019 campaign.

In an NUIC crossover contest, Aquin beat Orangeville, 28-16 as the Bulldogs rode a big day from quarterback Will Gustafson to the victory. The Aquin signal caller threw three touchdown passes and ran for another to get his team on the winning side to open the season on the Broncos’ home turf.
