did you know?



  • Coach Bob Zuppke developed historic football innovations such as the huddle, the flea flicker and the screen pass at OPRFHS. When Zuppke moved on to coach at the University of Illinois, he brought OPRF's school colors (orange and navy blue) with him. Illinois alumnus George S. Halas, founder of the Chicago Bears, would later make these the official colors of the Bears, albeit inverted (navy blue with orange trim instead of orange with navy blue trim). OPRF, in turn, adopted U of I's original fight song, "Illinois Loyalty", as "We're Loyal to You Oak Park High".
  •  only the second time in OPRF history they will play a Friday night game. October 23rd, 2009, just for us?


  • Sony played this at their executive meeting--progress!! mind boggling!
