Fremd's Rattin named Bears' All-Star
The Chicago Bears announced Friday that John Hoerster of Oak Park-River Forest has been named the Chicago Bears High School Coach of the Week for Week 8 and Nick Rattin of Fremd was named the Chicago Bears High School All-Star.
Hoerster and the Huskies (6-2) notched a 10-7 victory over the Glenbard West (6-2) on Oct. 13, marking their first win over the Hilltoppers since 2007. Senior Henry Darrow notched the game-winning field goal with seconds remaining in the game.
Rattin, who plays quarterback, running back and safety, helped lead the Fremd Vikings (4-4) to a 31-9 win at Hoffman Estates (6-2) last week to keep their playoff hopes alive. The senior threw for 1 touchdown, while also rushing for 231 yards and 2 TDs. He also posted 4 tackles.
Hoerster and Rattin will be invited to the Bears vs. Packers game on Sunday, Dec. 16, and will join their fellow 2018 Coach of the Week and High School All-Star honorees, respectively, for a pregame photo on the field. They will each also receive a framed certificate signed by Bears general manager Ryan Pace, head coach Matt Nagy and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
In addition to Coach of the Week and High School All-Star honorees attending the Bears vs. Packers game, all eight Illinois High School Association football state champion teams will also be recognized on Dec. 16. The Chicago Bears, in partnership with IHSA, will invite representatives from each team to the game and hold a special recognition of their state titles during halftime.
