The “huddle” consisted of pretty much the entire student body, and it was a trophy rather than a football being passed around Thursday at Mount Carmel High School.
Students, school officials and even Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took part in a pep rally to honor the Caravan for the program’s 11th state football championship.
Mount Carmel collected its latest hardware via a 28-14 victory over Glenbard North on Saturday in the Class 8A title game in Champaign.
