Written by - Friday, September 23 2016  

Greg Toal compiled 299 football coaching victories in 32 years on the sideline. The wait for his 300th win may have only seemed that long.

Don Bosco Prep fended off an upset bid from DePaul to score a 35-21 home triumph and achieve the milestone for its veteran coach. It was the first win of the season for the Ironmen after three consecutive losses to out-of-state opponents.
