School: New Trier Trevians
Head coach: Brian Doll
Assistant coaches: Jason Dane (DC), Tom Hessling, Mike Napoleon, Bob Spagnoli, Bill Morrison, Bob Bollweg, Pete Collins
How they fared in 2015: 9-2 (4-1) Central Suburban South. The Trevians made the Class 8A IHSA playoff field. New Trier defeated Lyons Township then lost to Homewood-Flossmoor in second-round action.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Trevians finally find a way to wrestle away the Central Suburban South conference crown from Maine South (75 straight conference wins and counting)?
Names to watch this season: RB/LB Max Rosenthall, QB Clay Czyzynski, RB/DB Francis Fay
Biggest holes to fill: The Trevians will look to add some depth this fall. New Trier welcomes back 14 returning starters, but five are also two-way starters.
EDGY's early take: Doll didn't need long to get the Trevians program up to speed. New Trier has experience and talent back this fall, and remains a team the could easily push into the Top 25 team polls.
