Appino Homecoming 10/18/12

Rockford, Illinois-It could be an emotional night at Boylan Friday night.  Dan Appino will be going back to his alma mater and back where he had so many successful seasons on the Boylan sideline.

Appino is now the head coach of the Auburn Knights. The Knights and Titans will close out the regular season against each other.

Appino has done a remarkable job with the Knights turning them into a likely playoff team at 5-3. Meanwhile, Boylan has kept chugging along with another undefeated season.

WTVO asked Appino on our latest Sports Connection show if he expects to get emotional Friday.

"I'm sure it's going to have a surreal feel to it when I walk into that stadium and see my newphew at the coin toss and see my brothers on the sidelines," says Appino. "That'll be different, but I love Boylan. That was a great place to be, and it's the standard for our area. Our kids aspire to be like those guys."

Catch the highlights Friday at 10pm on WTVO and again this weekend on The Sports Connection on MyNetwork TV and Fox 39/
