They talked about finishing. And they almost did.
Leading 17-10 with nine minutes left in the game, the Scouts had the home Batavia Bulldogs right where they wanted them.
But much like last year, the Scouts couldn't close the deal, losing 31-17, ending their conference championship-season run.
We start our video round up with Lake Forest coach Chuck Spagnoli, who talked about how proud he is of this group of seniors, only wishing they could have gone further (VIDEO).
Then we caught up with offensive coordinator Phil DeWald. The Scouts could not get star running back Owen Williams going, who had his least productive rushing output of the season. Ultimately, this was a contributing difference in the game (VIDEO).
We grabbed one player on both sides of the ball before they got on the bus to head home. Safety Phil Sheridan tried to put into words what the season meant to him, only to have it end in disappointment (VIDEO).
Finally, we talked to Lake Forest quarterback Jordan Beck. It was quite a season for the Scouts leader, who injured his elbow and sat out two games, only to come back and lead the team to the second round of the playoffs (VIDEO).
The Scouts finish the season 8-3, the most wins they have had in a season since 1996. This was a special group, one that won't be forgotten in a long time.
