Biggest storyline in 2015: Can the Huskies win in the postseason?
Names to watch: WR/DB Kamil Jackowski - a senior who will be asked to lead on both sides of the ball again in 2015 - and LB Gibby Eshoo, a junior starting linebacker that is already developing into a leader for the Huskies defense.
Biggest holes to fill: Can the Huskies find answers on the defensive line and in the secondary?
EDGY's Early Take: Hersey has won back-to-back Mid Suburban East conference crowns, yet the program is aiming for postseason success in 2015 after two quick state playoff exits in 2013 one 2014. Expect another conference title contending team here this fall.
