How they fared in 2015: 6-4 (3-2) Central Suburban South Conference. Evanston made the 2015 Class 8A state playoff field and lost to South Elgin in opening round action.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Wildkits reload after graduating a strong senior class this past spring?
Names to watch this season: OL/DL Christian Nielsen, OL/DL Morgan Brown
Biggest holes to fill: The Wildkits will be very young and inexperienced especially in the offensive skills department in 2016.
EDGY's Early Take: Evanston will be young in the offensive skills yet experienced on the offensive line this season which is a plus. If the Wildkits can find some replacements to step up this team could challenge in the CSL-South and beyond in 2016.
