MACHESNEY PARK, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF)–A whole pack of Huskies is ready to forge ahead to the next level. 12 Harlem football players signed letters of intent Wednesday with colleges and universities.

“Every year is special to be honest with you, but this class cemented the culture,” said Harlem head coach Bob Moynihan. “I owe them a lot for just doing that. Obviously you can see by how many are signing and going on to play, they cemented a great culture.”

The Huskies went 9-2 last season, and they picked up a first round playoff win in Class 6A while also finishing in second place in the NIC-10.
