Dedication

      “The Biggest Game of the Season” is dedicated to Dennis J. Piron, Jr., head football coach, Batavia High School, in the 102nd year of the rivalry (1913–2014), in grateful appreciation for his help with and support of this project.

      Coach Piron holds the remarkable distinction of being the first coach in Batavia football history to compile undefeated regular-season records and conference championships in his first two years as head coach. In 2013 Batavia won its first-ever Illinois State Football Championship (Class 6A).
