School: De La Salle Meteors
Head coach: Mike Boehm
Assistant coaches: Bill Green, Len Felton, Jim Brinkley, Marcus Spencer, Pat Blake, Nate Turner, Jake Callinan, Terry Jackson, Bob Garrett
How they fared in 2015: 4-6 (3-1) Chicago Catholic League Green Conference. De La Salle failed to make the IHSA playoffs.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Meteors experience pay off this season?
Names to watch this season: WR Eric Rooks, WR Ryan James, OL/DL Nick Boehm
Biggest holes to fill: The Meteors will need to replace standout graduated quarterback Tom Duddleston this fall.
EDGY's early take: De La Salle played a ton of underclassmen in 2015 and welcome back 16 returning starters. If De La Salle can stay healthy and also survive another rugged CCL schedule, they have a great chance of playing in the IHSA playoffs.
