(WLS) -- Dozens of Illinois high school student athletes, coaches and parents held a rally Sunday demanding the expanded return of fall sports for Illinois schools. At the McCook rally, Wheaton Warrenville South Student Jaylen Brown said he's worried about his senior football and basketball seasons. "This decision will determine if I get a scholarship or not," high school athlete Jaylen Brown said. High school sports advocate and rally organizer Joe Trost says these issues can weigh particularly heavy on some CPS students. "Imagine being a 17-year-old kid, last year you went through the CTU strike and you lost the end of your season which for a lot of these kids is a huge exposure opportunity, and then again here your senior year, realizing you could lose it again," Trost said.
