School: Glenbrook South Titans
Head coach: David Schoenwetter
Assistant coaches: Tom Mietus, Alan Greenberg, Matt Johlie, Travis Myers, Steve Stanicek, Pa'al Joshie, Mike Harrison, Zach Walker, Bobby Cowhey, Sean Batti
How they fared in 2015: 4-5 (2-3) Central Suburban South. Glenbrook South failed to qualify for the IHSA football playoff field.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Titans get back to the playoffs under their first year head coach?
Names to watch this season: WB Nate Acocella, OL Jack Carasotti
Biggest holes to fill: The Titans welcome back just five returning starters (three offense, two defense), so lots of spots will be inexperienced.
EDGY's early take: Gone to retirement is longtime head coach Mike Noll, so the Titans will have plenty of questions heading into preseason camp. Yet, this program has made the IHSA playoffs in 10 of the past 11 seasons. I expect this team to again compete for another playoff spot in 2016.
