Biggest storyline: Can the Huskies bounce back, contend for the MSL East title and get into the IHSA state playoff field?
Names to watch this season: Senior QB Owen Goldsberry, Junior RB/LB Nick Wiley
Biggest holes to fill: Who will play on the defensive line for Hersey in 2017? The Huskies will feature all brand new faces there this fall.
EDGY's Early Take: Hersey is looking to bounce back from its 3-6 season last fall. The Huskies have one of the top all-around players to watch in the Mid Suburban Conference in senior QB/ATH Owen Goldsberry. If the Huskies can get a solid contribution from a strong underclassmen group, this team could be a nice sleeper pick this fall.
