"The Chicago Bears are dedicated to supporting high school football throughout the state of Illinois, and we will be proud to recognize our 2013 football state champion teams during halftime of our game on Dec. 29," said Bears Chairman George H. McCaskey. "Winning a state title is a monumental accomplishment, and we look forward to congratulating each championship team."

The Bears have also been honoring an outstanding IHSA high school football player and head coach during each week of the 2013 regular season through the High School All-Stars and Coach of the Week programs, respectively.

The nine student-athletes and nine head coaches who were honored during the regular-season also will be recognized at the Dec. 29 contest.

The IHSA football state title games will be played at Huskie Stadium on the campus of Northern Illinois University in DeKalb Nov. 29-30. The Class 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A games will be contested on the first day, with the games for classes 5A through 8A unfolding on the second day.
