Biggest storyline: Can the Hawks make progress and get back to the state playoffs in Ilich's second season?
Names to watch this season: Senior offensive lineman Mike Oakes and senior sefensive end Cam Montbriand
Biggest holes to fill: The Hawks will need to reload on both sides of the football this season with just two starters returning from last fall.
EDGY's Early Take: Bartlett has missed the state playoffs in two of the last three seasons, yet this remains a program that always competes hard and more often than not winds up in the state playoffs. I look for Bartlett to take another positive step forward under Ilich in 2017.
