Jake Grabarek and Max Dukovac, students at Oswego High School and members of the Oswego Hockey Club, were selected by the high school head coaches in their league
to play in the Illinois High School State game on Feb. 11.
These two young men were selected as the best in their positions out of 27 high schools across the state of Illinois.

Jake’s twin brother, Ben, plays defense on both of Jake’s teams and Max’s father, Paul Dukovac, a former college and professional hockey player, coaches the Oswego team.
The Oswego Hockey Club is two years old.
