WAND Two-a-Days: Taylorville


It's time for WAND Two-a-Days! Gordon Voit and Noah Newman preview two high school football teams a day every day until the season kicks off on August 24th!

TAYLORVILLE -- The Tornadoes have plenty to be excited about as they get set to play on their brand new turf. 

For starters they return one of the most prolific passers in the area in senior quarterback Brandon Odam. His top target is back as well, all-state receiver Justin Wright. The team also picked up another dynamic pass catcher in Yemi Odugbesan, who transferred from Bolingbrook. 

The Tornadoes are a whopping 38-8 since moving to the Apollo four years ago. They'll look to keep it going in their quest to make the playoffs for the seventh year in a row.
