Biggest storyline: Can the Skyhawks keep the state title wagon train rolling again in 2017?
Names to watch this season: Senior QB/DB/K Adam Jayco, Senior WR Brody Frazier, Senior WR/DB Nico LoDolce
Biggest holes to fill: The Skyhawks will need to replace one of the program's top all time players, as RB Alex Peete graduated and moved on to UW Whitewater.
EDGY's Early Take: The Skyhawks had a terrific run last season. I expect the Skyhawks to be a factor once again in the northern part of the 4A state playoff bracket.
