I started this competition back in 2012 when I noticed quite a few Route 66 and Lincoln Highway towns with high school teams competing in the annual IHSA (Illinois) State High School Football Championships in all eight class levels.
The Class levels go from 8A, which are schools with the largest student populations down to 1A with the smallest.
I later added US-12 (Rand Road) and US-14 (Northwest Highway) which two roads go right through our area and have had a lot to do with my growing up in Chicago's Northwest suburbs.
The competition revolves around the last school(s) standing is the winner.
Lincoln Highway won in 2012, 2013 and 2015. Route 66 won in 2014.
US-12 won in 2013, US-14 in 2014 and last year it was a tie.
