School: Antioch Sequoits
Head coach: Brian Glashagel
Assistant Coaches: Del Pechauer, Jordan Eder, Neil Farlow, Ryan Shifley, Mike Karner, Pat Swanson, Mike Gordy, Vinny Juiditta, Rico Ellis
How they fared in 2015: 5-4 (3-3) North Suburban Prairie Conference. Antioch failed to qualify for the IHSA playoff field.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Sequoits avoid just missing out on the playoffs like last fall?
Names to watch this season: ATH Brandon Lind, K/P Ben Gutke
Biggest holes to fill: The Sequoits will need to replace a ton of rushing yards from graduated running back Griffin Hill and fullback Nick Dorosan.
EDGY's early take: Always look towards teams that just miss out on the IHSA playoffs the previous year to have a bit more motivation. Antioch has a good core back on both sides of the football, and will compete for a conference title in the newly formed Northern Lake County Conference.
