Effingham High School graduate Eric Whitaker will play his final game today for the Millikin University football team.

The Big Blue is playing in Kenosha, Wisconsin against Carthage College in the season-ending game for both teams.  Both teams are 1-8 on the season, so it should be an interesting battle.  Millikin has struggled through an injury-plagued campaign.

Eric was invited to attend the Division III Senior Classic in Salem, Virginia from December 11-13, but he will not be able to attend because of his academic schedule and graduation on December 15.  

The D3 Senior Classic brings together some of Division III's best to Salem, Virginia each December to compete in a North vs. South format All-Star Game.  Each year, the D3 Senior Classic provides its participants and their families with an experience including a banquet to pay tribute to their football careers.

Eric is the son of Rich and Amy Whitaker of Effingham.
