Barrington lost to Prospect, 21-9, Friday night.
The Doering's were in attendance for Saturday's Michigan-Notre Dame game in South Bend. "It was an exciting college football game," Mr. Doering said. "We were guests of Notre Dame and were on the field and in the stands. It is alway something special when you can see a game like that in person, the excitement of the fans, the history of the game, it was great, Dan really enjolyed himself."

Mr. Doering said his son has promised three schools that he would schedule official visits with them. Nebraska, Iowa, and Notre Dame are on the list right now. As for the other two? "This is such a long process and we'd like to get a chance to see as many of the schools as possible," Mr. Doering said. "We were hoping to get up to the Michigan-Iowa game but haven't heard from the Michigan coaches to get an invite, so we don't know what we're going to do that weekend. Tennessee has a night game that day and would like us to come down for that." The Doering's have limited number of Saturday visits. Barrington has practice on Saturday's and Mr. Doering said the Bronco staff has given Dan three Saturday's off so he can attend games. The Notre Dame game wasn't included in the three because they were able to practice before heading over the South Bend.
While the Doering's have been to Michigan for a basketball game, they have yet to step into Michigan Stadium on a fall Saturday. "We have never been to a game at Michigan," Mr. Doering said. "We've never even been to an academic event up there. We'd like to see what it's like for a game. It's difficult to get a feel for the program and how the fans are when you haven't been to a game."
Barrington plays at Rolling Meadows this Friday.
