Larry Wyllie talks about his decision to retire and what prompted it.
Larry Wyllie, who served as the superintendent of Lincoln-Way High School District 210 for 24 years, announced his retirement at the regular Thursday board of education meeting. Wyllie takes time to reflect on his career shaping a generation of students at four high schools and his decision to retire at the end of the school year. For a man whose day regularly starts before 6 a.m. and frequently stretches toward midnight, he said he's ready to hand over the reins to Scott Tingley, the newly announced superintendent-to-be and current principal at Lincoln-Way East High School. Summing up his career, Wyllie said, "I'm a schoolteacher. I've been a schoolteacher my whole life, and I've enjoyed it." Having been in education for 54 years, he …

Superintendent Larry Wyllie has been at the helm of Lincoln-Way High School District 210 for 24 years. He's helped shape a generation of students.
Lincoln-Way High School District 210 Superintendent Larry Wyllie, who announced his retirement at the Thursday Board of Education meeting, has helped shape a generation of students in the 105-square miles of the district.

Lincoln-Way East moves to 7-0, while holding onto the Dave McKay Gridiron Grail trophy for the twelfth consecutive year in its 36-6 rout of Lincoln-Way Central.
Breaking It Down: A good portion of Lincoln-Way East fans were able to leave the frigid, metal bleachers at halftime of Friday night's contest feeling confident about how the rest of the game would go, as Tom Fuessel was able to help build a comfortable 24-0 lead over Lincoln-Way Central. Fuessel frustrated the Lincoln-Way Central defense gaining over 300 yards combined through the air and ground, until he and the majority of the Griffin starters were pulled mid-way through the third quarter. Lincoln-Way Central's defensive line was able to sack Fuessel four times, yet was worn down quickly by trying to chase the quarterback down on his scrambling attempts. If not for Lincoln-Way East having over double the amount of penalties that the …

Find out how Lincoln-Way West Warriors head coach Dave Ernst went from an offensive coordinator to his current position, and watch a video preview of the team.
In the working world, some people are presented with two options: to either stay where they are within their cozy surroundings or take a chance and make a leap into uncharted territory. Dave Ernst got the opportunity to take a leap. After being the offensive coordinator at Providence Catholic from 1995-2000, Lincoln-Way Central from 2002-2007 and Lincoln-Way West from 2008-2011, Dave Ernst finally got the chance to take the position of head coach for the Warriors coming into the 2012 season after coach Mark VanderKooi became an athletic director.
