CSNChicago.com is your top destination on the road to the 2015 high school football season. CSN preps contributor “Edgy” Tim O’Halloran will take a look at 100 teams in 100 days, counting down to the opening night kickoff on Aug. 28.
School: Glenbard North
Head coach: Ryan Wilkins
Assistant Coaches: Ryan Smelko, Bruce Donash, Dave Hennessey, Nick Cosentino, Tom Gudella, John Cassidy, Justin Kerwin, Chuck Earnest, Matt Ng
How they fared in 2014: 4-5 (2-3 DuPage Valley Conference); The Panthers failed to make the IHSA state playoff field.
Biggest storyline in 2015: Can the Panthers bounce back and make the state playoffs despite an even tougher schedule this fall?
Names to Watch:
Senior running back Devion Hodges has speed and power.
Senior defensive lineman Lucas Cherry is an impact player.
Biggest holes to fill: The Panthers are searching for a new group of linebackers this season.
EDGY's Early Take: Glenbard North is always a hard-nosed, speedy and physical team. The offense has experience back and this looks like another title contender team in what will be a ridiculously tough DVC race in 2015.
