The Biggest Game of the Season:
Batavia Bulldogs vs. Geneva Vikings
George H. Scheetz
Director, Batavia Public Library
“The Biggest Game of the Season” is dedicated to Dennis J. Piron, Jr., head football coach, Batavia High School, in the 104nd year of the rivalry (1913–2016), 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 in his first two years as head coach and, even more remarkable, undefeated conference records and championships in his first five years as head coach. In 2013 Batavia won its first-ever Illinois State Football Championship (Class 6A).
