School: TF North Meteors
Head coach: Rich Watson
Assistant coaches: Rich Tarka, Mike Danielczyk, Travis Newsome
How they fared in 2015: 4-5 (1-5) South Suburban Blue Conference. TF North failed to make the 2015 IHSA state playoff field.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Meteors get to five or more wins in 2016?
Names to watch this season: QB/ATH Rayshaun Watson; QB Nate Jones
Biggest holes to fill: Can TF North get much needed contributions from several newcomers to watch this fall?
EDGY's Early Take: TF North came close last season to getting into the state playoffs, yet the early non-conference schedule is ramped up big time with Shepard and DeLaSalle this season. If the Meteors can find a way of getting an early non-conference win, all the better.
