While McConkey was at the controls of Sycamore's offense, Donovan Lacey continues to grow into his role as leader of the DeKalb defense. The Barbs, too, were in action Friday at West Aurora.
Lacey, who's played somewhat of a hybrid safety/outside linebacker position for DeKalb in the past, is expected to add slot receiver to his duties this fall. He also thinks of himself as a big brother to the younger guys.
"That's not only way in the way I compete, but the way I do things," Lacey said, "taking everything we get from coach and giving it to the younger kids."
