Rockford, Illinois-One of the most anticipated football games Friday night in week one will be Boylan at Auburn.  The Titans have a 65 game NIC-10 winning streak. The Knights, under former Boylan coach Dan Appino, are coming off their best season since 1997.

At Boylan's practice the past couple weeks there has been a little inspiration lurking near-by. A knight statue was watching over them.

When asked if it served as inspiration for the players Boylan quarterback Brock Stull said, "It could be. A lot of guys might think so. It's just a medieval times thing that we had in the classroom, so we brought it out."
