WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill. - As U-High prepares for a new season, it has familiar faces in new places.
Former assistant coach Mike Troll is the new head coach, succeeding Dusty Burk who left to become principal at Pontiac.
And last year's back-up Nick Phelan is the starting quarterback after All-Stater Arion Worthman transferred to Normal West for his senior season.
"I feel more comfortable knowing that I do have the teammates I do have with me," said Phelan as he gets ready for his senior year. "I have been playing with them for the past four years, and some of them for seven or eight years. So I obviously trust them a lot."
U-High opens the season Aug. 29 at home against Urbana.
