Bellino named All-State

St. Bede senior linebacker Michael Bellino has been named to the All-State Team by the Illinois High School Football Coaches Association. He is the first Bruin to receive this honor since Mike Padilla in 2001.

“I haven’t had an All-State for a long, long time. It surprised me,” said St. Bede coach John Bellino, Michael’s father.

The younger Bellino received Three Rivers North All-Conference recognition. His father said he is just starting the application process for college.
