Prep Star of the Week: Ty Isaac of Joliet Catholic


This week’s Good Day Prep Star of the Week honor goes to Joliet Catholic running back Ty Isaac.

Last week, Isaac scored four touchdowns and rushed for 214 yards on 18 carries in Catholic's 49-7 State 5A semifinal victory over Springfield Sacred Heart-Griffin.

It was just a normal day for Isaac; those four TD's make it 45 touchdowns for Isaac on the year, an all-time record at tradition-rich Joliet Catholic. On the season, Issac's rushed for 2,114 yards in 13 games this year! He averages nearly 12 yards a carry.

His coach Dan Sharp told the Herald News "he does stuff you've only seen guys like Gale Sayers do."

Isaac is following in his dad's footsteps; his father Tyrone was Catholic's leading rusher back in 1987 and led the Hilltoppers to a state championship.

Saturday, Isaac can match his dad again, as Catholic meets Montini for the 5A state crown.

One more thing: Isaac is only a junior!
